Shinin’ Times! In this third volume of the Temple Buck series, Temple returns to the Rockies in 1828, rejoins his trapping bunch and resumes the life of the free trapper where he left off 2 years earlier. Temple and his comrades explore uncharted new beaver-rich country, gaining new experience in a changing and expanding fur trade. Their personal lives change, as well. While still experiencing hair-raising and life-threatening adventures at the hands of Nature and hostile tribes, they take on new responsibilities while enjoying the happy-go-lucky life of the Rocky Mountain trapper, its rich flavors improved now by their wider knowledge, deeper experience and greater appreciation of everything that living in the American wilderness offers to bold men who possess enough savvy and courage to survive on Nature’s bosom.
