This is my first ever post on this forum, and I'm hoping it'll lead to several more as I meet fellow readers who may help lead me to my next great reading adventure.
First, a question for whoever may know the answer Chronologically speaking, the next book in the series that Johnston wrote was "Ride the Moon Down", but some things I've read online have given me the impression that "Carry the Wind" Johnston's first book of his first trilogy is actually the next phase of the story in this series Long story short, which book should I read next to pick up exactly where "Crack in the Sky" leaves off?
Terry Johnston's Titus Bass series
Silencer06 , Nov 27, There were parts that were a little dry and slow when the character started philosophizing about his life. Oct 30, Chris Barraclough rated it it was amazing.

I've long been a fan of the late Mr Johnston. Books like this one are the reason why. Crack in the Sky is an epic story, with all the colour of the mountain man era, and flesh and blood characters. Scratch Bass is not an angel, he is a man learning to find himself and understand the people around him. He comes a long way in the years covered by this book - - If you are a fan of the Old West and the Mountain Men this book is a treat.
And if you want believable characters and a strong e I've long been a fan of the late Mr Johnston. And if you want believable characters and a strong emotional journey, you won't be disappointment. Bravo Terry C Johnston Sep 01, Marianne rated it really liked it. I finished this monster of a book. The scope is phenomenal. This writing so precise and descriptive the mind pictures it evokes stay with me for a long time. The hardships and dangers of these early mountain men is beyond my understanding.
Titus Bass Series
Jan 03, Christopher Taylor rated it it was ok. This was a difficult book to read. Instead of a story, its more of a rambling narrative, a sort of biographical account of fictional mountain men heavy in jargon with pidgeon language thrown into the dialog so thick at times it is difficult to read. One part of this dialect is the use of the word "nigger" among the mountain men as a colloquialism meaning "bro" or "dude" in modern slang which might be very shocking to modern eyes.
However I didn't think the slang dialect was done very comfortably, This was a difficult book to read.
However I didn't think the slang dialect was done very comfortably, like someone who used it often, but instead deliberately and carefully like someone who saw it in a book and was trying to replicate it. There were several early passages featuring lyrics and songs that were very powerful, and the musings of the main character on events, history, and speculation on the future were effective, but in the end the book was a struggle and not very enjoyable for me.

Currently reading this awesome novel for a second time. This author puts you there riding, trapping and surviving right along side Titus Bass.

I can almost smell the woodsmoke as I read these novels. Such a shame that Terry C. I miss his creative output. This book was about the life of the "mountain man". Presented in a good way.

Interesting even if that sort of story is not really my favorite. Glad I read and learned quite a bit about that lifestyle.
