The Wilderness series by Oregon author David Thompson now includes over 60 entries. He hopes to marry his gorgeous girlfriend Adeline, who comes from a wealthy family and expects to live a life of ease in the future. I may read the next entry in the series ("Lure of the Wild"), although it appears that currently, most of the older books are out of print. The transfer to digital text was somewhat sloppy here, especially in the first few chapters.

Title: King Of The Mountain by David Thompson, (Wilderness Series, Book 1) from Books In Motion.

Enjoy the Wilderness series by David Thompson from the very beginning! GRIZZLY! His fear getting the better of his reason, Nathaniel instinctively backed away from the bear, retreating into the shallow water at the edge of the river. The grizzly dropped onto all fours and advanced ponderously, rumbling deep in its chest, its eyes fixed on the man. Nathaniel could stand the strain no longer. He cupped his hands to his mouth and bellowed at the top of his lungs, Zeke! A grizzly! Then he retreated several more strides.

King of the Mountain book. I just finished WILDERNESS KING OF THE MOUNTAIN (1990) by David Thompson (David Robbins), and it really was an excellent book. His girlfriend is a materialistic pain in the neck who will only marry him if he can establish that he has the capacity to support the spoiled girl.

David Thompson (30 April 1770 – 10 February 1857) was a British-Canadian fur trader, surveyor, and cartographer, known to some native peoples as Koo-Koo-Sint or "the Stargazer". Over Thompson's career, he traveled some 90,000 kilometres (56,000 mi) across North America, mapping . million square kilometres (. million square miles) of North America along the way. For this historic feat, Thompson has been described as the "greatest land geographer who ever lived.

Exploring the American idea since 1857. In the days before women gained the right to vote in 1920, spouses were almost never part of the raucous public debate of a presidential campaign-almost never, that is, except for Jessie Benton Frémont," writes Steve Inskeep.

The Wilderness series by Oregon author David Thompson now includes over 60 entries. In this entry set in 1827, Nate King is just 19 years old and working as an accountant in a successful New York City firm. He hopes to marry his gorgeous girlfriend Adeline, who comes from a wealthy family and expects to live a life of ease in the future. Everything seems to be going rosy for Nate, but he senses that something is missing. A letter from his long lost uncle Zeke arrives from out of the blue; Zeke is the family black sheep who disappeared into the wilderness a decade earlier. Zeke promises Nate treasure if he meets him in St. Louis. Such treasure will allow him to marry Adeline and give her everything she desires, so Nate decides to take a great risk and venture to the wild west town of St. Louis. He's in for some big surprises.

I have to admit that I was not familiar with this series until I stumbled across this one by accident and decided to give it a try. I don't typically read in this genre, but I do sometimes enjoy survival type stories. With that caveat, I thought that "King of the Mountain" was just okay. I didn't dislike it at all, but the plot was rather predictable at times, and the writing is average at best. The book quickly fell into a bland formula of Nate reflecting along the lines of..."during this leg of the journey, two notable things happened. First...." Fortunately, it was a quick read and did hold my attention. Fans of this genre will likely rate this novel at least a star higher. I may read the next entry in the series ("Lure of the Wild"), although it appears that currently, most of the older books are out of print.

Note: This review is for the Kindle version of "King of the Mountain." The transfer to digital text was somewhat sloppy here, especially in the first few chapters. There are errors every few pages, mostly spelling errors, missing punctuation, or missing words. For example, one character is called Tutttle, Tuttle, and Turtle within a few pages. These problems don't really impede the reading of the novel, though, and after the first few chapters I did notice fewer errors; however, it is dispiriting seeing such carelessness.

The Wilderness series has been around for a while, but I just stumbled upon it in 2013. This first book in the long running series (I believe there are over 50 installments at this point) is excellent! It is very fast paced, and the action never slows.
I've never understood why more Western authors don't write about the Mountain Man period. I've searched for exciting fiction covering this area, but have not found much. Now, with the discovery of the Wilderness series, I'll be busy ready for quite some time.
Note: Some reviewers have claimed there are quite a few mistakes in the Kindle edition of this book. There were only a couple I came across, but they were not too distracting. Perhaps an earlier version had more before being cleaned up. For me, this book read just fine in its electronic format.
The first and second books are available in Kindle format, but beyond that I have not had much luck finding the series, save for some of the newer ones. I have picked up #3 and #4 in hardcopy, but here's hoping they will release them all as ebooks.
Happy reading.

I read these books as a kid and loved them. I recently bought this one for my son, to see if he likes it.

He loves it. He gives it five stars. He says:

“Ooooooo yeah!! Dat was great u have to read it!!!!! It’s so cooool full of exploring and an adventure ????????!”

So there you have it. He’s 9, but a pretty advanced reader, this might be better suited to 11 or 12 year olds. Also deals with some graphic descriptions of death. I’m cool with it, he and I have been reading chapters at night before bedtime.

This book got me hooked on David Thompson, I would have rated it with a 5 except it like all his books in this series are too short. They are like chapters not a real book. You just git into it and the book ends. I have bought 6 of his books or chapters and will not buy any more and there are about 64 in this series. I really like his writing but he needs to write a book not a series of chapters. The world is changing he, the author needs to keep up, every one is going to Ebooks, these are not available for ebooks.

The first Wilderness by David Thompson I read was loaned to me by my sister. I finished the book in no time . This has to be a mistake, no one can write this good so I found the 2nd book of the Wilderness series and each one got better. These books are so well written you find yourself along side and in all the action. There is never a shortage of excitement. After some years went by I had all the Wilderness series purchased at Amazon. One of my brothers was interested so he borrowed some to read, after he read the last one he was hooked, he quickly ask for the remaining books. He now tells me he would like to reread them. Many have read my books and they are popular with all that pick them up. I will search to find more of this author's material. I have some of the Davy Crockett series also. I love all the writings of David Thompson. It's an adventure all should experience. Ride the wild trails with the King family. I wish the author well, keep up the great work.

If you're an affectionado of the mountain man era, or long for the freedom that wilderness living brings, this tale will introduce to the saga that David Thompson has authored in his fifty-nine + books. When Nate King's uncle Zeke sends a letter asking Nate to share a treasure, little does Nate know what he is in for. Filled with action, the story moves right along, right up to the end.
