A High Sierra Christmas is a tale of the West, narrated in the 'old west' style. It's a story of Jeremiah Johnson and his 'later in life' adventures in the High Sierra-Nevada mountain range. Two old cowboys, looking for gold, seek out Johnson and ask him to guide them to their dreams in the rugged High Sierra. In this fireside story, Jeremiah and his Indian friend, John Windwalker, embark on that adventure with Jeremiah's visiting young nieces, Carrie and Hannah, and his nephew, Marc. The group embarks on a difficult journey up the east side of the majestic, white granite range, headed toward Mineral King on its western slopes. But, when the bank in Big Pine is robbed, three lawless men in their getaway head up the trail right behind them. What happens next is a long way from what you might expect. You'd best saddle up and ride along! Mark Stephen Taylor is the award-winning author of Hiking the Trail of Truth, Knowing God through His Creation, published by Xulon Press in February 2009. A retired California peace officer, educated in criminal psychology, geology, and now a Biblical teacher and counselor, Mr. Taylor has spent many years exploring the wonders of the American Southwest. His experiences and knowledge have produced a unique style of writing that is appreciated by both the educated and the common among us. He has climbed the highest of our western mountains and camped in our lowest deserts. He has spent time among the Native Americans and learned much about the creation and its wildlife through their counsel. Encouraged by his mother as a boy to create a western story, he now makes a dream come true and gives us a bit of fiction and reality in this truly inspiring narrative of the old west.
