    Even at the age of 14, folks were calling him the youngest bounty hunter in Texas. His pa said he was more man than most men. But now his pa lay dead in a dusty Lubbock, Texas street, back-shot by a wealthy and powerful New Mexico rancher. Over his father's grave he swore to make things right. Neither his age, impossible odds, nor a thousand miles of unforgiving desert would keep Tad Littlejohn from righting a terrible wrong.

    The narrated by Gene Engene is a great performance. This is the first western by Dusty Rhodes that I have listened to. Gene Engene performance is a great and makes for a great listening. Gene Engene put the action into his performance make the story come alive. I would recommend this story to anyone who like westerns with a lot of action.

    After burying their parents, the three young Isom brothers faced starvation. Desperate and penniless, they set out in search of work. Their long, difficult journey forces them to discover themselves, and the harsh reality of life in the late 1800's. With hard work, determination, and a dream, they emerge as one of the greatest success stories of the old west.

    Story

    This book is the second one in a series about the Isoms brothers. It's a very exciting western about their lives as they leave their home and head for Texas where they become town marshals. They later start the "Lone Star Cattle Company". Its a very good western with the gunfights that accompany most western books. As the story goes on the book deals with them getting married. The author, Dusty Rhodes, does a very excellent job at developing the story theme. If you are a fan of books written by Dusty Rhodes and a fan of the narrator Gene Engene than I recommend these two books.

    This is another short story by Louis L'Amour about Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie. If you like books by Louis L'Amour I'm sure that you'll enjoy listening to this short story. It's full of action like a bank robbery and gunfights. Typical Louis L'Amour style of writing.

    J.C. Holderfield brought law and order to the lawless frontier of Texas in the mid-eighteen hundreds and became known far and wide as “The Town Tamer.” His reputation for cleaning up a town was backed up by his fast gun and made him sought after by the law-abiding citizens and feared by those that would prey on them.

    This western was very exciting in the life of a town Marshall. If you like westerners than you'll like this one. There's plenty of action like gunfights and the like. This book is written in the same style as Louis L'Amour.

    Here is another marvelous Zane Grey novel. In his magnificent style, Zane Grey has crafted a story that’s both moving and exciting with new perils in every chapter. Not only is there gun fighting, cattle rustling and the battle over water holes, but the thrilling capture and winning over of Silvermane, the magnificent wild stallion admired and wanted by every white man and Indian on the desert. All of this is intermingled with tender love between the main character, Jack Hare and the beautiful half-breed maiden, Mescal.

    This is another good western by Zane Grey. The book is full of action. My only complaint is that it puts the Mormon's as the bad characters. Sometimes the action slows down but overall I would recommend listening to this book.

    In 1889 Bill Tilghman joined the historic land rush that transformed a raw frontier into Oklahoma Territory. A lawman by trade, he set aside his badge to make his fortune in the boomtowns. Yet Tilghman was called into service once more, on a bold, relentless manhunt that would make his name a legend for all time - in an epic confrontation with outlaw gang leader Bill Doolin.

    This story centers on Federal Marshal Bill Tilghman and his capturing of Bill Doolin and his gang of outlaws.

    This book centers in 1889, when Marshal Bill Tilghman goes after outlaw Bill Doolin and bring down his gang. The author Matt Braun has a way of writing that makes his books exciting to listen too. This book has a lot of actions that make it very enjoyable to listen too. Also the narrator William Dufris does a very excellent way of making the difference characters come to life. I have only listened to three books by this author, Matt Braun, but I'm looking forward to listening outs by him. I would highly recommend reading this book.

    The Fetterman Massacre of 1866 marked the tragic opening to one of the longest and most dramatic wars in history. Told from the perspective of the gruff Seamus Donegan, this historically accurate tale describes the massacre in vivid detail. At the end of the Civil War, a tremendous stream of soldiers and settlers began moving westward along the Bozeman Trail, cutting deep into sacred Sioux hunting grounds. For Red Cloud and his warriors, a bloody fight to retain their ancestral homeland proved inevitable.
