They’ve moved my son from one job to the other so they were shipped to the wrong jail so I’m re-orde

They sent my son to a different jail and the boots went to his old jail so I have to re-order them

Old-fashioned entertainment but like Potato Chips, ya can't have just one!

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. There are currently 34 books in this 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. 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 that his politics are on the conservative side. This doesn't figure much in the westerns but in his Post-apocalypse series 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.

A wonderful read

I was in awe reading about the adventures of Smoke Jensen and Preacher The action was fast and brutal, a real page-turner. You can almost smell the gunsmoke! I'm glad I finally discovered Mr. Johnstone.

The Beginning of an Outstanding Series

"The Last Mountain Man" is the beginning of the Smoke Jensen story. Smoke is a raw naive kid, who learns fast, and won't take any crap from any outlaw murdering thief. If you like the Western genre you'll LOVE William W. Johnstone's "Mountain Man" series. Smoke Jensen is genuine.

One of the BEST he has ever written

I read this book when it was first out in paper back, since then, I think I've read everything Johnstone has written. A true storyteller.
