    After his family is killed by a pack of rabid wolves, Jefferson Gray survives the horrid disease himself, with the aid of a Cherokee medicine man. But, unfortunately, he can not banish the hatred that dwells within him: an animosity toward dangerous game, particularly timber wolves. Fifteen years have passed. Timber Gray is known throughout the western territories as a seasoned tracker and hunter. But can Timber tackle his greatest challenge - a pack of 50 wolves led by the legendary Cripplefoot?

    What was Brad Smith thinking? I have liked him when interviewed or participating in NPR's wait wait don't tell me or some of his own performances..but he is completely unequipped to read a book. His voice is hesitant and , although unique, is flat , monotonous and almost totally without inflection.
    He brings nothing to the story and in fact detracts from the charters and descriptions .
    The only reason I gave the number of starts was to be generous to the story.
    I love Larry McMurty lonesome dove series for example and this is somewhat reminiscent of those westerns (although a 2 dimensional reflection of those wonderfully written books).
    Still, I would have been entertained by the story and main character if I was reading it or if it was read by a more talented actor.
    The problem is, a reader must ACT THE PARTS to make a story live. This effort , or lack of it ,was an embarrassing failure since Brad Smith is not an actor and is also a bad reader of anything except perhaps his own writing.
