Originally published more than fifty years ago, The Big Sky is the first of A. B. Guthrie's epic adventure novels of America's vast frontier. The Big Sky introduces Boone Caudill, Jim Deakins, and Dick Summers, three of the most memorable characters in western American literature. Traveling the Missouri River from St. Louis to the Rockies, these frontiersmen live as trappers, traders, guides, and explorers. The story centers on Caudill, a young Kentuckian driven by a raging hunger for life and a longing for the blue sky and brown earth of big, wild places. Caught up in the freedom and savagery of the wilderness, Caudill becomes an untamed mountain man whom only the beautiful daughter of a Blackfoot chief dares to love. With The Big Sky, Guthrie gives us an unforgettable portrait of a spacious land and a unique way of life.

A person who'd like to read a good book involving fictional characters during the western expansion but who doesn't want to be observed carrying around Louis L'Amour novels can begin a good, long reading voyage with these AB Guthrie books beginning with the Big Sky. The characters aren't cardboard cutouts, the plotting is tight and the book was written and published during an era when publishing houses edited the books and didn't pad them with dozens of pages of introspection, gratuitous sexual tittilations, and dragging unnecessary dialogue.
