    1. Over the past four months I have been reading the Mountain Man series by William W. Johnstone. They are a throwback to the old west and come complete with rugged turrain, outlaws, Indians, and heroes. I enjoyed these books for the simple reason that I feel transported back to a simpler time when right was right, wrong was wrong, and there wasn't nearly so much gray. The reader gets to learn alot about what it was like for the men and women who broke open the territory but especially we get to ch [...]

    3. I read return of the mountain man written by William W. Johnstone and it was exactly what you would expect out of a wild west book. The setting is the west where you can travel for days without seeing another soul, and because of this its very easy for outlaws to escape the law. The main character throughout the story is Smoke Jenson and all he has on his mind is revenge. Three men Stratton, Potter, and Richards set together a gang and set them out to kill smoke. They ended up killing all of Smo [...]

    7. 4.75 out of 5.My only complaint is Johnstone seemed to dumb Smoke Jensen down a bit from the first novel, but it could have honestly been because he was surrounded by some more learned characters this time round.All in all, a great read!

    8. A pocket book that you can read in an afternoon. Very engrossing because of the action from beginning to end. Kirby (Smoke) Jensen is an unbelievably tough and able guy out to get justice for the murder of his family and he does. A great story.

    12. I picked up the first book off a bookshelf of a place I was visiting. Read it and now I'm amongst the very apparent many who are collecting the series of series. The first book drew me in as it fleshed out quite a set of characters and told a great story. I delved into number two hoping to find more of the same and did. It is a continuation of the first book and wraps the loose ends. Obviously a setup to get the reader on to number three. Though i doubt at the time William Johnstone in the mid-' [...]

    13. Didn't actually finish it. After I liked the first novel so much, this one was a disappointment. It's all about the conclusion of events begun in the other book, but drawn out to its own novel length. That means that the hero has to play Hamlet a bit; procrastinating on his plans until just the right moment. The rest of the characters also have their actions dictated by the plot, making decisions based not on character, but on the ending the author is driving towards. Sadly, all that manipulatio [...]

    14. Sometimes a man has to do what he has to do. If someone kills your wife and kid, you take care of the problem. And Smoke Jensen, the fastest draw in the West, knows how to take care of problems.I'm not sure why I love these Westerns so much--easy read? the good guy wins? men are "men" except for the evil ones? I'm watching Longmire on A&E, too. Maybe next year I need to take my girl out to a dude ranch for a week so I can get all this wrangling and riding out of my system!

    15. This has been in our home library since my husband read it in 2009. I rated this book only two stars because, in a flashback, the text was so similar to text in The Last Mountain Man it almost read as if it had been copied and pasted, and I prefer any author show more craftsmanship than that. I recommend it only to fans of the series.

    16. The problem I have with the character Smoke Jensen is he's always TOO good with his guns, and that this is my first exposure to William Johnstone, in the middle of a long series of books about The Mountain Man. I can't take Westerns too seriously and like more humorous writing in this genre.

    17. Overall: a classic style western. It is what it is and that's all that it is.I would recommend this to: people driving through Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

    18. Very good western series. The story of Smoke Jensen, trained by the last of the mountain men as a boy. If you like men's adventure and westerns then you will enjoy the series. Recommended

    19. As always a great book by the Johnstone's. I love how Smoke gets revenge on the people who murdered his family but did not harm the women or children. Really worth reading.

    21. Nothing better than a good Western on a cold winters day. Except maybe two? On to the next!

    22. It was decent. Not sure I liked his style better than L'Amour. It seemed to be more raw and violent. I'll have to read some more Johnstone to get a better idea of his style
