Sometimes you have to find your own path…In Pieguard, Zeb Thurnwell is the only trader in town willing to take the townsfolk’s wares up to the city of St Louis.While folk don’t say anything, everyone knows that Zeb takes much of their hard-earned profits for himself to spend on whiskey. And with Zeb’s uncle being the sheriff and tax collector for the county, it looks like nothing’s going to change any time soon.Until Dan Bolder shows up.As a young, brash man of eighteen, he’s not going to take Zeb’s pilfering ways lying down.When Zeb tries to silence him permanently, Dan knocks him out cold and takes what he believes Zeb owes him. Realising that the law will soon be on to him, Dan is forced to leave his family’s ranch and his widowed mother behind.Zeb and his uncle the Sheriff are not far behind.But as luck would have it, on the way to St Louis, Dan meets Ben Starpson, a ‘mountain man’ still in his prime. Saving Dan from the noose, Ben devises a way to get them to St Louis. And so begins their fire-forged partnership. Along the way, Ben teaches the greenhorn Dan how to hunt, shoot and live like a mountain man.Yet despite the dangers and the roughness of the frontier, Dan starts to see how Ben sees it – as a place where men can live unabashedly as men. He may have been a humble sod-breaker but out in these untamed lands, Dan might just be able to find himself a new path in life.Set in the heart of the once wild frontier, The Pathfinders shows the indomitable spirits of those that made America, in a tale of adventure and loyalty.Praise for E C Tubb’A thrilling read.’ – Robert Foster, acclaimed author of The Lunar Code.Edwin Charles Tubb was a British writer of western novels, science fiction and fantasy.
