Curse of the Spanish Gold is the heart-pounding continuation of the epic saga that Terry Grosz began in Crossed Arrows.
The babies Jacob and Martin have grown into men—Mountain Men—near Fort Bridger. But in 1852, they are a generation too late.
The wilderness is shrinking as gold fever takes its toll, beaver pelts have played out, the buffalo are vanishing, and the two young men must seek their fortune westward. They become unwitting wagon-train masters, and then continue their trek to the Pacific Ocean where destiny plays the cruelest of tricks. Desperate Indians, ruthless outlaws and wild beasts stand in their way.
This is a novel of life in the lawless 1850s American West, and of two men caught in the cross hairs of destiny.
Terry Grosz was a wildlife law enforcement officer for California and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Wildlife Wars, his first book, won the National Outdoor Book Award and was the basis of a docudrama featured on Animal Planet. Seven memoirs followed. Curse of the Spanish Gold is the first of his "Mountain Men Novels."
