PONDER THE PATH Back Cover

 PONDER THE PATH is a 95,000 word hard core history of how young Bill Sublette's grandfather inspired him to become an explorer, and how Bill grew up to change our nation. Spanning America's brawling years from 1808 to 1830, PONDER puts you in the moccasins of the real Mountain Men that Bill and Milt Sublette met fighting arctic cold, grizzlies, Blackfeet, bad whiskey and each other for the vast beaver fortunes that lured many men to shallow graves.

 For all its accurate journal quotes, Bibliography and Index, PONDER is history as it happens, an epic cycloning across 28 states. See the Table of Contents, Foreword and Prologue for fascinating details.

Gary Wiles worked his grandpa's cattle ranch in the Rockies as a boy. He graveyarded as a cop thru a college B.A., then wore a Deputy Marshal's star until earning his law degree. He tried civil cases nationwide until succumbing to writing and wildlife photography.

Delores M. Brown grew up in historic Greeley, Colorado near Ft. Vasquez. Her research skills built PONDER'S 159 volume Bibliography. PONDER'S cover is her blend of Gary's grizzly* and landscape. Her artistic images grace posters, magazine and book covers.

*Gary photographed the grizzly in the wilderness "with its mouth full of another bear."
