He found a people who needed his courage…
Born a slave, Jim Beckwirth forged his own path to freedom as a mountain man. But when a wealthy trading company owner offered to pay him to live among the Crow Indians, Beckwirth accepted the deal—and discovered another way of life that changed him forever.
He fought a battle that had to be won…
Here in the Wind River Mountains, amidst blood feuds and blood brothers, he became Bloody Hand, a man sworn to take a hundred scalps—and destined to become the People's greatest warrior—in a life-or-death struggle that shaped the fate of a nation.
