    One thought on “The Long Rifle”

    1. (This review is a copy of what I posted on back in '04)Stewart Edward White was many things- lumberjack, cowboy, novelist, biographer, even a writer of a psychic phenomenon series,and though this is the first book of his that I have had the immense pleasure of reading, I must say that after reading the Long Rifle, I believe that this, out of his almost sixty books, was the one he enjoyed writing the most.

    5. It begins and ends with a rifle. With a great mountain man beginning a journey and another ending one. What a great story!
