"In a captivating barnburner of romance, adventure and gruesome frontier justice, Latham...create[s] a sweeping saga of three decades of Texas cowboy history." (Publishers Weekly)
This is a life story that is a bit overstated. Not quite Paul Bunyun like but still a bit unbelievable. I like westerns and this one did hold my interest. Not for the faint of heart as there is a lot of gore, but if that does not bother you it should be worth a download.
Just want to say that I love stories of the West, whether fiction or non-fiction. "Code Of The West" is very much worth the listen. I will download the authors other listen when a credit becomes available. Enjoy!
