This book is beautifully written and performed. The story is wonderful and has the feel of clearly depicting a time gone by. There were times I laughed out loud. The characters had life and I was interested in them and their lives.
If you have never read Doig before, this is a great first read. You'll be hooked.
Ken Marks is perfect for the narration- the way he carefully pronounces "t" when it is at the end of a word- has the sound of one of the Westerners of whom he speaks.
You have to fall, at least a little, in love with Ty Hardin. His country, his mules and his life.
This is a great read!
This book turned a local historical person (Doc is buried in Glenwood Springs, Colorado) into a real person for me. Gunslingers are usually made into a hero in the face of danger in being made into more than human. Doc was an intelligent dental surgeon who suffered from a devastating disease. His heroics were in overcoming his personal demons.
This is a great read and a very well written and read book. Enjoy!
