The first two stories (of the Mackenzies series) are included in this large book. To say these two stories are sensual is an understatement. The author has created characters that are richly drawn and have a strong sense of right-and-wrong.

MACKENZIE'S MOUNTAIN (Mackenzies, Bk 1)
The first tale is about intolerance in a small town and how just one person can change the landscape for the better. A half-breed Indian (Wolf) and his son (Joe) are isolated from the local town because of hard feelings on both sides.

Wolf was sent to prison for raping a young woman several years before, all the while protesting his innocence. After two years, when another man confessed to that rape and several others, Wolf was released. Some of the town feel guilty about jumping to conclusions; others believe that where theres smoke theres a fire and avoid the Mackenzies. Wolf and Joe move to Mackenzies Mountain and avoid the town.

The delicate balance of hate and mistrust is upset when a new teacher comes to town and wants Joe to come back to high school.

MACKENZIE'S MISSION (Mackenzies, Bk 2)
The second story takes up about 20 years later; Wolfs son Joe is now a test pilot for the U.S. Air Force. He also is leader of the super-secret fighter-plane project in the Nevada desert. When things start to go wrong with the testing, Joe must stop the sabotage quickly. Unfortunately, all roads lead to the new project member Dr. Caroline Evans.
