Publisher's Summary

Long Road to Abilene is a classic hero's journey, a western adventure that exemplifies the struggles, the defeats, and the victories that personify the American West. After surviving the bloody battle of Franklin and the hell of a Yankee prison camp, Cade McCall comes home to the woman he loves only to find that she, believing him dead, has married his brother. With nothing left to keep him in Tennessee, Cade journeys to New Orleans where an encounter with a beautiful woman leads to being shanghaied for an unexpected adventure at sea. Returning to Texas, he signs on to drive a herd of cattle to Abilene, where he is drawn into a classic showdown of good versus evil, and a surprising reunion with an old enemy.

    "Spellbinding spin of history and adventure"

    I truly enjoyed hearing the narration of this story. Mr Jarvis Hooten's many voices and accents were right on and added immensely to my ability to get lost in Mr Vaughn's epic adventure. I was easily able to visualize each scene and the actions taking place.

    "Good story bad narration"

    I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. The narration took away from the story. I love great western books and this was a good one but the narrator should have just kept to the story and left his attempts at doing characters alone. The story followed Cade's journey from the civil War to the expansion in the west. Well written and historical although some points made me think twice about the author's take on the situation. We each have an opinion on how the west was won or taken and mostly I let author's do their own thing and just keep my opinion to myself. That being said the book should be listened to with an open mind and understanding that it is fiction and it is a pretty good fiction.

    Long Road to Abilene: The Western Adventures of Cade McCall : Robert Vaughan


    An interesting tale beginning during the Civil War. and continuing on into a western setting. Cade McCall's adventures keep the listener ingaged. I want more of his story which I hope will be in future books.

    The narration was annoying, the accents were terrible and detracted from the story. Jarvis Hooten should not have tried to overdo the characters. Sorry to have to say this, but good narration would have enhanced this book.
