It's 1825, and St. Louis marks the outer edge of civilization. But a city - no matter how rough and tumble - can limit a young man's dreams. So it is from here that young Titus Bass sets out. A vast, unexplored continent west of the great Mississippi beckons, awaiting those with the courage and resourcefulness to conquer it. And Titus Bass will be one of the first white men to stake his claim.In Buffalo Palace, Titus turns his back on all he's ever known and travels alone into the thick forest, bound for the eastern edge of the high plains. There he encounters a magnificent sight: a dark and thundering herd of buffalo as far as the eye can see. It's a world of beauty and danger - a world where survival depends on a man's willingness to risk death.From the forks of the Platte River to the country of the dreaded Blackfoot and Arapaho, from the foothills into the central Rockies, Titus Bass pushes onward, with only the stars and his own destiny to guide him.Every bend in the river promises new hope and the threat of sudden violence...and every distant campfire signals a new friendship or a new fight. But for Bass no challenge is too great. This is his country, and just as the great buffalo herd will leave its legacy, Titus Bass will leave his.
