Publisher's Summary

Josey Wales was the most wanted man in Texas. His wife and child had been lost to pre-civil War destruction and, like Jesse James and other young farmers, he joined the guerrilla soldiers of Missouri-men with no cause but survival and no purpose but revenge.

    "Average."

    Voice is toned to simulate the various characters. The female voice acting was silly sounding. Ambient sound effects and music would really make it.

    "Like Lighting In A Bottle"
    Would you listen to Gone to Texas - A Josey Wales Western again? Why?

    Yes. Traveling while listening to the story would be like riding with Wales and Lone. While sitting by the fire or watching the sunset, sipping bourbon or sampling wine, the story would be a wonderful companion.


    What other book might you compare Gone to Texas - A Josey Wales Western to and why?

    I have never read a book that compares to Gone to Texas. It rides alone.


    Have you listened to any of Chet Williamson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time. It was so enjoyable that I will seek out Mr.Williamson's other performances.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book was like bourbon. It burnt a bit going down but soon felt real warm. Chapter 19 touched my heart. The conclusion was heart warming.


    Any additional comments?

    Being from the American South it is not easy to find positive books about the South. This is a rare book. It is recommended to all Southerners but most of all to Yankees who are seeking enlightenment about the way it was.

    I've read the book years ago, but listening to it (while driving across the deserts of Utah and Nevada) let me enjoy this familiar tale in a new light. It's a great story made even better by Chet Williamson's reading. I look forward to listening to the sequel.
