Overview

A historical adventure that sweeps across the rugged Northwest.

The journals of Lewis and Clark record that on July 27, 1806, a Blackfeet Indian chief was killed in an encounter with that now famous expedition. In the same journal, a few pages earlier, is a reference to an unnamed white man who was living with the Blackfeet a few miles away.

This is his story.

His name was Yellow Hair, and that killing changed the entire course of his life - sending him on an exciting and daring mission across the unmapped wilderness.

Author Details

Hubbard, L. Ron

L. Ron Hubbard's legendary writing career encompassed more than 250 novels, short stories and screenplays in every major genre including 19 New York Times bestsellers.\n\nA seasoned world traveler before attending college where he studied engineering and took one of the earliest courses in molecular phenomena, he went on to achieve renown as a pioneer aviator, master mariner and flag bearing expedition leader of the Explorers Club.

In the 1930s and 1940s, he was a top-line high-production writer for the popular pulp fiction magazines. His stories, many reflecting the diversity of his own life experiences, exuded a sense of realistic adventure with sharply convincing characters and dialogue that brought them vividly alive and attracted a wide readership.

When he entered the field of science fiction, he wrote high-concept stories that were crowded with action and suspense. Along with a handful of other innovatively imaginative writers, he helped lead the way in creating the Golden Age of Science Fiction and laying the foundation for the genre's continuing popularity and entertainment appeal.

Among his bestselling and classic speculative fiction trendsetters are Fear, Final Blackout, Ole Doc Methuselah, and his crowning epics, Battlefield Earth and the Mission Earth series, which together dominated American bestseller lists for 153 weeks.
