Brendan Early and Dana Moon have tracked renegade Apaches together and gunned down scalp hunters to become Arizona legends. But now they face each other from opposite sides of what newspapers are calling The Rincon Mountain War. Brendan and a gang of mining company gun thugs are dead set on running Dana and "the People of the Mountain" from their land.
The characters are unforgettable, the plot packed with action, and there are gunfights from beginning to end.

There are times when Valdez Is Coming is my favorite Leonard Western.
But every time I listen to this one, I realize this is the one that has all the elements in it.
Most especially, the humor.
"The smiles and laughter. Impact and terms of an Audible book, this is the best one. There is no unabridged Valdez Is Coming here.
So this one would win by default.
However, Josh Clark's performance would win in almost any contest. His dialects, his different voices for different characters, his reading of the narration… Perfect! The perfect marriage between writer and reader in this case.
