Alex Munro's reputation preceded him all along the banks of the Upper Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers; he was a stubborn Scot who piloted the fastest stern-wheeler in the Territory. but Munro wuld need more than his reputation to see him through his latest mission; the delivery of a stockpile of supplies to Fort Mahone, six days upriver.
Two hundred miles of treacherous water lay ahead-with murderous Sioux at every bend, a vengeful skipper steaming along in his wake, hoping to see the Rose of Dundee and her captain at the bottom of the Yellowstone, and a beautiful stowaway who was fast stealing Munro's heart.
Any way he tried adding up the score it came out the same; Alec Munro stood to lose more on this trip up the Yellowstone River than he did to gain...if he survived it.
My husband read this and enjoyed it. This is a withdrawn library book.
