The final days of the great Rocky Mountain Fur Trade.
Volume IV of the Temple Buck Quartet

Glory Days Gone Under

by Edward Louis Henry

The fourth and final volume of the Temple Buck Quartet describes the final years of the American Rocky Mountain fur trade through the eyes and in the words of Temple Buck and his trapper comrades as they continue their determined quest of beaver through the uncharted wilderness of the Rockies through forbidding western deserts to the Pacific Ocean in Spanish California and back again, harvesting on the way not only beaver pelts but a host of fresh adventures, new friendships, romance, and, at last, an unwelcome education in conservation, marketing, and gentlemen’s fashion. Temple tells this true-to-life tale with homespun humor, matter-of-fact acceptance of high times and hardship, and the mountaineer’s abiding confidence that tomorrow will be better if you make it so.

Glory Days Gone Under 3D“The plot and dialog have the ring of authenticity and from the outset, the novel is an irresistible page-turner. Temple Buck has the spunk appropriate to a virile young adventurer. If you have enjoyed the fiction of Win Blevins and Terry Johnston, you will find a worthy continuation of the genre.”  —Eric Bye, editor, Muzzle Blast Magazine

“Henry has produced a meticulously detailed saga of the Rocky Mountain fur trade . . . through the eyes of his heroic adventure-seeking protagonist, Temple Buck . . . Henry has a ribald sense of humor, an accurate ear for dialect, and a genuine gift for sparkling characterization . . . These books belong on the shelf of any fur trade buff; for pleasure reading and reference.”  —Roundup Magazine

“This is a novel, yes, but it is so absorbing that you’ll completely forget that it isn’t absolute fact . . . I recommend . . . very highly. I haven’t enjoyed a novel about the fur trade as much as this one in quite a while.” — Mike Nesbitt, Muzzleloader Magazine
