Law of the Mountain Man by William W. Johnstone



War of the Mountain Man. William W. Johnstone. Smoke Jensen, The Beginning. Brutal Night of the Mountain Man. Mamma, a child’s voice said excitedly. I seen him on the cover of a book. That’s Smoke Jensen! After a lot of apologies and much embarrassment on the part of those in the house, Smoke was invited to sit down and eat. A small boy took Dagger to the barn. Children could handle the big mean-eyed stallion, but Dagger would kill a grown man who tried to mess with him. Smoke tried to put some family resemblance between the young woman and the old couple. He could not see any.

If you like westerners, then the mountain man series is for you. Johnstone brings his characters alive. There are some definite differences and it's still a good book, but the fundamentals are way too similar. For someone reading just this book, the novel is very, very good. Seems to me that Johnstone found himself in the midst of starting this series along with pumping out other books in different genres and ran into trouble.

William W. When The Bullets Start To Fly: Smoke Jensen sat in a cave and boiled the last of his coffee. He figured he was in Idaho - somewhere south of Montpelier - but he was certain about only two things: he was cold and he was being hunted by a small army of men. Smoke knew why he was cold - it was winter. He just didn't have a clear idea of why anyone was after him. He was soon to find out that he'd unwittingly ridden into the middle of the fiercest range war in years. Now he had to either choose sides or return home across the back of a horse.

Smoke knew why he was cold-it was winter.

About book: Over the past four months I have been reading the Mountain Man series by William W. They are a throwback to the old west and come complete with rugged turrain, outlaws, Indians, and heroes. I enjoyed these books for the simple reason that I feel transported back to a simpler time when right was right, wrong was wrong, and there wasn't nearly so much gray. Johnstone is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of over 300 books, including Preacher, The Last Mountain Man, Luke Jensen Bounty Hunter, Flintlock, Savage Texas, Matt Jensen, The Last Mountain Man; The Family Jensen, Sidewinders, and Shawn O'Brien Town Tamer. His thrillers include Phoenix Rising, Home Invasion, The Blood of Patriots, The Bleeding Edge, and Suicide Mission. As usual William W. Johnstone wrote another story of the West being settled. A man named Jud who fancied himself King as he was the richest, and owned most of the area around him anyway. The only problem was that he was sincerely crazy.

This particular series of books featuring Smoke Jensen have fiercly dedicated fans. I"m only a casual reader but I buy these books as gifts for a family friend who is serving a prison sentence. I am rating these based on his reviews. He tells me these are the perfect escape books for people who are either incarcerated or perhaps disabled or elderly. The action is fast-paced and the descriptions of the Western frontier are authentically detailed. He appreciates that WWJ often refers to historic events of interest and will try and tie the story in with those happenings. Reading this series and the Preacher Series by the same author has motivated him to ask for non-fiction books about the Frontier and the Old West.

Having begun reading these books myself I can attest that they are well-wrriten and intelligent but they do not ask the reader to have a master's degree in history. True events are worked into the structure of the stories or mentioned by the characters as part of the action itself. In addition, Johnstone manages to work in real western or cowboy poet poems or quotes such as famed Yukon Poet, Robert W. Service! The stories really take you away, transporting you to that time amd way of life while remaining fast-paced and action-oriented. His politics are a bit conservative/Libertarian but not in a bad way. It's more that Johnstone's protagonists advocate being able to take care of themselves and others, which is fitting with the time periods in which he sets his fiction. He does have a futuristic, post-apocalypse series written , but I have not read that yet. I undertsand politics play a bigger part in those books. So, as you can see, these are good and fun, fast reads but not "dumbed-down" books by any stretch of the imagination. They merely attempt to make the reader feel a part of the story as opposed to an observer. I like that.

There are currently 34 books in this particular series and the first 28 or so were written totally by WWJ. The later books were collaborations with his niece Jo Johnstone. WWJ himself passed away a few years ago in 2004 or 2006 depending on your source, and Jo has taken over most of the continuing series. However, readers didn't even realize the man had died until his publisher 'fessed up so I would assume that the current writer is keeping with the same tried and true formula that fans expect when they buy one of these books. WHen I began sending the later books to my Family Friend; he never noticed any major changes in the quality of the story-telling so Jo Johnstone, niece and Assistant to the original writer must be working from an outline W.W.J. left behind. That would be my guess. In case it matters to others and some have messaged me, I started sending the books as part of a Christian Program. I've learned a lot about what books are popular "inside" as a result. I got the idea of sending these to elderly friends as a result and they loved them just as much! These are fun, entertaining books that manage yo learn 'ya a little somethin' along the way.

Update Jan 2012: Wikipedia has a list of the order of each series if you just search on the authors name and then you can print that out and figure out where you want to begin. My family friend has almost finished the Smoke Jensen series but still has a lot of the Preacher series to go. Many of these books are available in double books or in the 4 for 3 program. Just find out how may books you can send in one week. If you're reading them for your own pleasure or sending them to somebody in a nursing home, then this is unlikely to be an issue for you. As for the List I found on Wikipedia - I typed up the list in WORD on a double sided page printout and mailed my friend 2 copies; 1 for his reference and one for mine. I had him send me one copy back marked up with where he was in each series and which ones interested him the most and he did that. It's a good system. When I buy one, I draw a line through it. When he tells me he got it, I check it off in red. He does the same and that way we're one the same page. These William W. Johnstone Series set in the Western Frontier both the Smoke Jensen MountainMen series, the newer Matt Jensen series and the Preacher Man Series are highly desirable as "trade items" on the inside and/or will be greatly welcomed if your loved one donates them to the facilities library. I have found out over the years that having good books to "trade, share or donate is a very useful thing to a man or woman behind bars.

FYI: For those sending to incarcerated readers, here's something interesting I learned, If you write P.O. BOX NO PO BOX on the first line of the address, Amazon's computer will ship them via the USA Postal Service so for example, I write Names: John Doe # 123456789XYZ, PO BOX NO PO BOX - Whatever C.I., Street Address , City, Zip code, My phone number. That way it doesn't violate most State Prison rules. Using that P.O. BOX NO PO BOX trick bypasses UPS or Fedex if you have PRIME and ships the books out Via Postal Service 2nd Day service. Check the used books too because some of the cheaper used ones are Prime Eligible and if you're paying for Prime, why not take advantage of the free shipping?

If you know somebody who could use a little escape to this time period, you really can't go wrong with these books. The only thing I would say is to be aware of his politics which do tend to be a little bit on the conservative side of things. This doesn't figure as much in the westerns but in his Post-apocalypse series mentioned above and called ASHES, it's front and center. Many fans of Westerns have never gotten around to that series but I'm just puttin' it out there for you so you know. You never know, you might just like those books too!

As usual William W. Johnstone wrote another story of the West being settled. A man named Jud who fancied himself King as he was the richest, and owned most of the area around him anyway. The only problem was that he was sincerely crazy. Only one man stood in his way and that was Smoke. Poor spelling and words missing, still a good read.

I love theses stories about Smoke Jenson, the story isn't the problem. The problem is that I got this on my kindle and in many places through out this book the text is out of order and or misspelled! This is the first one of Johnstone books that I had this problem with and I hope it's the last.

Another great story with Smoke Jensen. I don't think the proof reader did a very good job in this story. The story was great and full of action.

This Kindle book is a horror of nightmarish editing errors. Hoover Dam ! So many my eyes crossed at times. Never seen the likes of it before. Mr Johnstone, if I were you I'd look them up then put some rock salt on their south side.

I've read the paperback version of this book, and I loved it, so when i had a chance to get it for Kindle I did. The spelling is pitiful, sentences begin and end in the middle, and unless my memory is very faulty, there's bits of it missing. I have other William Johnstone books downloaded to my app, and they're correct. Why Amazon let this one slip through in such poor shape is beyond me.

The mountain series beggining with the first mountain man, was what brought me to william W. Johnstone. I read as many of these as I could find. I then read as many of the Smoke jensen, the last mountain man, books I could find. Then went ot Matt Jensen. All of these intermigle with the characters developed by bringing in Preacher to help develope Smoke Jensen, then bringing Smoke Jensen in to help develope Matt Jensen. All these books have been wonderful reading.
As could be expected, another great book by Johnstone. Action packed and plenty of exciting characters. Never disappoint when you read any of Johnstones books
