*HOLIDAY EDITION: 'A High Sierra Christmas' is a tale of the West, narrated in the 'old west' style. It's a story of Jeremiah Johnson and his 'later in life' adventures in the High Sierra-Nevada mountain range of California.
Two old cowboys, looking for gold, seek out Johnson and ask him to guide them to their dreams across the rugged High Sierra. In this fireside tale, Jeremiah and his Indian friend, John Windwalker, embark on that adventure with his visiting young nieces, Carrie and Hannah, and his nephew, Marc.
The group rides out on a difficult journey up the east side of the majestic, white granite range, headed toward Mineral King on its western slopes. But, when the bank in Big Pine is robbed, three lawless men in their getaway head up the trail right behind them.
What happens next is a long way from what you might expect. For young and old alike, it's for sure a Christmas to remember. You'd best saddle up and ride along!
In a dying world, one lone rider is the only hope for salvation.?
Some say the world is shattered, that our way of life is dying. Our sun fills half the sky and the scorched lands struggle to provide enough to sustain us. Still, there has always been hope. But as that fiery red orb descends below the rocky skyline, then comes the shadow: Dark spirits hell-bent on destroying what's left of humanity, as if we needed any help.
My name is Cheveyo Santiago. I cheated death as a child, but that trauma marked me, and now I sense the evil in others. So here I am, drawn like a moth to the flame. Though I carry a revolver, I'm no gunslinger, there are plenty faster on the draw than me. My real edge is knowledge.
Old family recipes passed down through the ages - the secrets to banish the shadow back to the hells that spawned it. Salt, Brimstone, Silver and Tallow shall be my weapons.?
So, hear this, all creatures and spirits of evil. I know you. I see you. Prepare yourself for judgement.
