Description

Outlaws, snowstorms, rugged terrain—nothing will stop them from making it to Montana Territory in time for Christmas . . . "A masterful storyteller." —Publishers Weekly
From the masters of frontier fiction comes a holiday tale set in the very heart of America—a Western saga of courageous souls coming together, with a little help from the Jensen family . . .
In the fall of 1873, a wagon train of immigrants sets off from Kansas City, Missouri, bound for the Montana Territory. Leading the group is newly elected wagonmaster Jamie Ian MacCallister, a giant of a man and frontier legend who swears he can get them there by Christmas—come hell or high snow drifts . . .
Plagued by brutally harsh storms and rugged terrain, outlaws and hostile Indians, the journey will be the greatest challenge these pioneers will ever face. But when things look nearly hopeless, help arrives in the form of two unlikely saviors: an old mountain man known as Preacher and legendary frontiersman Smoke Jensen. Two hard-willed men who believe in the settlers' dreams with all their hearts—and who will get them to their destination by Christmas. Even if it takes a miracle . . .

        Starred review from October 15, 2013

        During the autumn of 1873, Jamie Ian MacCallister, a famous frontiersman, ends up in Kansas City, MO, where he quickly finds trouble in the local saloon. After incapacitating the wagon master of a group of immigrants headed to the Montana Territory, he's drafted into the job. Despite his admonitions that it's crazy to leave for Montana so late in the year, Jamie agrees to try to get them to their homesteads by Christmas. They'll have to battle weather, Indians, and outlaws along the way, but if anyone can do it, it's Jamie. VERDICT Following A Rocky Mountain Christmas and A Lone Star Christmas, Johnstone and his nephew have written an excellent Western with plenty of action and suspense along with great secondary characters and story lines that will appeal to historical fiction readers, too.
