Sun River / Bannack

(A book in the Skye's West series)
An omnibus of novels by

Two classic novels of Skye's West by one of America's great Western storytellers, Richard S. Wheeler.

Sun River
Mister Skye is big, tough, and knows the West as few others do. He's agreed to lead a party of missionaries to the Blackfoot Nation: to get there, they must pass through land controlled by the Crow and patrolled by the Cheyenne; and they must stop fighting among themselves about everything. To get there, the party won't survive at all, without Mister Skye.

If Barnaby Skye had not wanted the new Henry repeating rifle so badly, he would have thought more than twice about leading this particular group of pilgrims from Ft. Laramie into the new Idaho territory. The company includes Alvah Riddle, marriage broker, escorting three mail-order brides; Goldtooth Joyce and other sporting women from a house in Memphis, looking to get rich quick; Blueberry Hill, runaway slave and piano player; and the man calling himself Cornelius Vanderbilt - a gambling man with a fixed deck and hidden guns. Even before the trip began, Skye knew this group would be trouble. Then came the deserters, the flash flood, and the village of Old Bull. And after that, things got bad...
