During the winter of 1825, Richard Hamilton—a timid Harvard philosophy student—arrives in St. Louis on business for his father. Robbed and beaten, desperate to save his life, he reluctantly joins the crew of the Maria, a fur trader's keelboat. Bound for the beautiful, wild, and dangerous Indian country of the Upper Yellowstone River, the native Bostonian begins the education and adventure of a lifetime.

On a converging path is Packrat, a Pawnee warrior who captures a beautiful young Shoshone medicine woman named Heals Like a Willow. But slaves with ties to the spirit world can—and do—fight back.
As the Maria struggles deeper into the wilderness, Richard and Willow are cast together: seekers of knowledge and spirit, unwitting adversaries separated by time, space, and birthright. As inevitable as the collision of their two worlds, their love begins to unfold—and with it the terrible consequences of a forbidden consummation.

Morning River is the first novel in W. Michael Gear's Man from Boston series—a historical fiction saga of the dangers and possibilities of the American frontier.

The Western Novel MEGAPACKTM series returns with its fifth rip-roaring installment! Here are four more great western novels:

MANHUNT WEST, by Walker A. Tompkins ... Fleeing a posse, Cleve Logan boards a riverboat loaded with outlaws. Hands are dealt in a desperate game -- and Death will take the last trick!

THE RENEGADE HILLS, by Allan K. Echols ... Saddle up -- and ride hell-bent-for-leather down the trail to a hidden valley -- but keep your guns loose in your holsters, 'cause you're riding to an outlaw showdown in the Renegade Hills!

LAST-CHANCE RANGE, by Dean Owen ... Byrd Elkhart called the Territory his private range. He strung his barbed wire across forty miles of it, and the other ranchers just stood by with their tails between their legs. But then a different breed of man showed up in the person of Clay Janner, of Texas -- and he was going to drive his scrawny herd over the range even if he had to turn the whole Territory into a six-gun shambles!

POWDER SMOKE, by Jackson Gregory ... "Double pay," Bart Warbuck told his gunmen, "and give hundred more to the one who gets Jeff Cody!" -- It was as simple as that if you were Warbuck, had 30 killers on your payroll, and made the law whatever you wanted it to be. But it was hard to take if you were young Cody, and if the only gun you could rely on was the one in your belt. And if you alone could stop Bart Warbuck!

If you enjoy this volume of classic Westerns, don't forget to search your favorite ebook store for "Wildside Press Megapack" to see the 220+ other entries in this series, including not just historical fiction, but mysteries, adventure, science fiction, fantasy, horror -- and much, much more!
