A Novel of The Life & Times of James B. Stuart in Early Montana
By Rod Johnson
When James B. Stuart came to Montana's Bitterroot Valley in the 1860's at the time of the gold rush at Grasshopper Gulch and Virginia City in what was then the Territory of Montana, he didn't know that he'd follow a path in pursuit of riches quite different from most of those who migrated to the gold diggings. Rod Johnson, has written a wonderful story, in historical novel form, about a man who was a cattle drover, prospector, cattle rancher, vigilante, a personal friend of Joseph of the Nez Perce, and among the first settlers to choose Montana's beautiful Bitterroot Valley as their home. This is a tremendous story of a man caught up in tough times. Stuart experienced a rough, outdoor life in times that demanded much of people . 6x9-inch format, 172 pages, softcover, richly illustrated by Lance Johnson.
