Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In These Thousand Hills, the third installment of A. B. Guthrie, Jr.'s Big Sky series, we follow Lat Evans (grandson of Lije Evans from the second book in the series, The Way West) as he negotiates the untamed, raucous world of cattle ranchers in the 1880s. Evans begins as a gentle cowboy, seeking a more prosperous life than his meager upbringing promised. His rise to fortune is a tempestuous one, complete with moral dilemmas and shady characters who would lead him astray. Evans finds prosperity with winnings from a horse race and a loan from a prostitute. But when he realizes his political ambitions may be waylaid by his checkered past, he truly learns the price of compromise.

Synopsis:

A lively and riveting story that deftly captures western life at its best by A. B. Guthrie, Jr.

Synopsis:

These Thousand Hills continues the western epic of A. B. Guthrie, Jr.'s, critically acclaimed Big Sky series. This vivid American saga conjures up the world of cattle ranchers in the 1880s, focusing on a Montana community's boisterous, wanderlusting eccentrics as they chase after love and unbridled ambitions. At its center is Lat Evens, a goodhearted cowboy who strikes out from Oregon to Montana on a cattle drive, determined to succeed as a rancher. Gradually, though, he discerns how the perils of the world, especially human nature, can conspire to frustrate a man's best intentions.
