Published way ahead of its time in 1966 by Greenleaf Classics, republished in 2006 by Arsenal Pulp Press. A lusty gay frontier romance that tells the story of Ephraim McIver, a 19th century frontiersman, as he travels through the American wilderness. Ephraim meets a number of characters who share stories, wisdom and homosexual encounters. Unique among pulp novels of the time, the gay characters are strong and romantically drawn - traits that have earned the book a place in the canon of gay American literature.

When written, this book was ahead of its it is a truly enjoyable read whilst also giving tips on how natural it is for men to love other men. The steamy scenes are hot too!!!!

This important book predated the gay rights movement and gave solace to many gay men that it was possible to live openly and together. It's also a fantasy set in the real west coast and is still quite entertaining.
