"In this powerful biographical novel, Richard S. Wheeler -- Winner of the Owen Wister Award and six Spur Awards--tells the amazing tale of an American explorer and hero. John Frémont, a one-time presidential candidate, was called the Pathfinder for his infomitable courage. But sometimes courage is not enough. After a failed expedition to find a railway toute to the West along the 38th parallel, Frémont finds himself trapped in the snowbound Colorado mountains. His choices are simple: die, freezing and starving, or fight his way out. Frémont chooses to battle the elements in a harrowing frigid journey over the backbone of the continent. In this tale of urgent danger and fierce courage, Wheeler presents a survival saga par excellence. Snowbound is a struggle of man against man, man against nature, man against himself...and a novel you will never forget." --Cover, p. 2.
