Publisher Comments:

Young Josiah Paddock, on the run from his past in St. Louis, didn't have much hope of survival.  Winter was coming to the Rockies, and if the cold cutting through his city clothes didn't kill him, grizzlies or Indians would.  Then his luck tumed.  He stumbled across the trail of Ol' Scratch, a solitary mountain man eager enough for company to take the brash youngster under his wing.  Pure chance brought Paddock to the old trapper's camp, but it was skill with a gun and a knife that kept them both alive as they rode deep into the majestic land of Blackfeet and Crow, bible-spouting pioneers and sensual woman where only the best and braves survived . . . and only the luckiest rode back again. Carry The Wind is a gripping historical saga set in the Grand Tetons during a time when the horizon never ended and a nation was being born.

Authors On The Rise Book Reviews, May 22, 2008 (view all comments by Authors On The Rise Book Reviews)
Terry C. Johnston was born in 1947 on the plains of Kansas and has lived a varied life as a roustabout, history teacher, printer, paramedic, dog catcher, and car salesman, all the while immersing himself in the history of the early West. His first novel, Carry the Wind, won the Medicine Pipe Bearer's Award from the Western Writers of America, and his subsequent books, among them Cry of the Hawk, Winter Rain, Dream Catcher, and the Sons of the Plains trilogy, have appeared on bestseller lists throughout the country. Terry C. Johnston lived in Big Sky country near Billings, Montana.
On February 4, 2001, Terry went into the hospital and was diagnosed with colon cancer. Terry lost his battle with cancer on March 25, 2001.
The death of Mr. Johnston was a great loss to all readers and the American Indian. Mr. Johnston had a way of describing a battle from both the Indians side and the white mans side. He was always fair in his description of any battle from both sides. His fictional characters became real people to the reader. You found yourself waiting in anticipation for the next book to come out, so you could find out what was happening to ol scratch, or what battle was sheamus going to be in. You found yourself sitting in the teepee with Red Cloud, or riding into battle with Crazy Horse. Feeling the fear of Fetterman the day of his massacre.
Mr. Johnston was a great author. I have read all of his books and can only give them high praise. I will not go through and review everyone of his books. It has been to long ago that I have read them. But I know this and I remember each and everyone of them and will rate all with five stars.
If you want to read a great Historical fiction of the old wild west. Then TERRY C JOHNSTON is who you should be reading.
