Two complete novels in one low-priced edition from beloved Western author Richard S. Wheeler: Rendezvous and Dark Passage

Barnaby Skye, a seaman in the Royal Navy, jumps ship at Fort Vancouver in 1826 with little more than the clothes on his back. Fighting for life, he heads inland toward an unknown fate. Skye falls in with legendary mountain men, and finds another unexpected turn in his life when he meets the Crow maiden, Many Quill Woman, who will become his wife.

Dark Passage
In 1831 Skye accompanies his wife to her village, where she falls in with Jim Beckwourth and accompanies him on a raid among the Blackfeet. When she's abducted by the Bloods, the deadliest band of Blackfeet, Skye trails her into Canada, where he's still wanted for deserting his ship four years ago. Then Sky himself is taken prisoner, and Victoria must escape her captors to free the man she loves.

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
