Publisher's Summary

When old money and older entitlement invade Missouri, Ruben Beeler is dispatched by the Federal Marshals Service to investigate complaints from small farmers and ranchers that a wealthy Englishman is taking over an entire county. Rube leaves his wife and their baby at home, and enters into a conflict where might is right, and Sir Merrit Treadstone is prepared to do whatever is necessary to establish the Calico Cattle Company and his new American kingdom. With Marion Daniels and Homer Poteet, Ruben faces poison, arson, and murder as he struggles to put down a British invasion and stay alive, on The Calico Trail.

    Story
    "Profoundly hilarious"
    If you could sum up Calico Trail in three words, what would they be?

    Refreshing and honest


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rube is probably my favourite - he goes from an awkward "aw shucks" to a hard no-nonsense man in control of any situation. He has a gentleness that is very endearing, and a strength that is very reassuring.


    What about David R. Lewis’s performance did you like?

    Loved Lewis' deep gravelly voice and his seemingly genuine way of telling his story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Lawmen who get the difficult jobs done efficiently but with side-splitting humour.


    Any additional comments?

    This author needs to produce more books.

    Just an old retired guy, eyesight not as good as it was, so really enjoy listening to these books. Been listening for about 6 years.

    "Easy listen. Fun listen."
    What made the experience of listening to Calico Trail the most enjoyable?

    Loved the humorous 'southernisms'. The book galloped along with a good story holding the reins. The author did a wonderful job with the characters! Check it out, you will not be disappointed.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "Story enormously entertaining with great narration"

    After listening to all 5 books 3 times, I am only disappointed that the author has not written many more. I've read more than 100 Louis L'Amour books and I find David R. Lewis just as enjoyable. Lewis has all the great story and action of L'Amour but with wonderful humor that brings a smile to ones face. David R. Lewis not only wrote an exciting story but is a superb narrator. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him describe exciting gun battles of good vs. evil, as well as, describing mouthwatering "artery clogging" country meals. I recommend highly. Please write more Mr. Lewis!!!
