Rivers West by Louis L'Amour

Jean Talon, a shipwright from Canada, comes upon a dying man on a lonely trail.  As he comorts him as he can he gets just enough information to begin an unplanned journey west. 

A short, quick read with bits of historical facts thrown in for added flavor.  Helpful people always appear, bad guys are obvious, there is a girl but that is not settled until the very last paragraph.  Probably would have been better as a short story as about half the book is a bit contrived.

As always when thinking of the story as a whole it is good, just not well written.
