Unstoppable!: Book #12 – by Raymond Cook

Unstoppable-Book-12“Unstoppable!” is a 145 page story about a 1,500 pound ferocious, cold blooded grizzly bear that terrorizes ranchers and towns within a forty mile range of Marble, Colorado. When pioneer families crossed the plains they faced many dangers on their way out west. Starvation, lack of water, Indian attacks, cholera and small pox as well as the risk of their covered wagons tumbling off the side of a mountain side were all dangers in the back of their minds.

But nothing put the fear into someone more than the sight of a grizzly bear. Because of their massive size and sloping head, it was impossible to kill a charging grizzly head on. Nothing short of a well placed 45-70 shell could kill the monster from a side shot. Even when Sam Bates, David and Patrick Liley, Henry Woods and former U. S. Deputy Marshal, Jacob Chaney set out to kill a huge grizzly on McClure Pass two years ago, it took them ten shots to kill that huge grizzly.

Grizzlies typically avoided encounters with humans. One exception was if someone came across a sow and her cubs. In that case she would charge and kill them. For reasons that will never be known, this massive grizzly chose to begin attacking cattle, horses and family’s on ranches, not simply to feed but for satisfaction or vengeance perhaps. Many grizzlies aren’t killed when they’re shot with a 44, 45 or a 45-70 shell if the slug slams into the thick gristle on a grizzly, nor will it bleed. But it will make them very angry.

This 1,500 pound grizzly, turned man-killer standing 9 feet tall with 5 inch claws will have to be hunted down as the toll of death on livestock and humans rises. But even four mountain men hunting the grizzly in the mountains are no match as they will soon find out. Take a trip back into time when the west was the most dangerous place to live for a pioneer family.

From the Author
This is the twelfth ebook from a series of 22 eBooks I have written about pioneer families living in the Colorado territory in the 1890’s. If you love westerns as much as I do, you’ll enjoy the emotions and characters I have tried to capture in all of my books. So sit back, relax and enjoy Unstoppable! In truth, this book may not be as large as my other westerns, but it is an action packed book worth reading!
