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.

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.
I have never read a book that compares to Gone to Texas. It rides alone.
This was the first time. It was so enjoyable that I will seek out Mr.Williamson's other performances.
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.
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.
"Great story well told."
loved it. Great story well read. Very easy to listen to, I was only sorry when it finished.
