Publisher's Summary

Fate has brought about a reunion with a brother Buck Cordell thought was dead. Hard work and perseverance brought both of them success beyond their wildest expectations.

But the loss of Buck’s best friend and partner caused him to re-examine his priorities and decide “Family” was the highest priority of all.

    "Longhorn IV"

    I have read the series in order and book IV brings it all together nicely. The importance of family comes through loud and clear in this book. Lots of action, cattle drives, travel by horse back, buggy, stagecoach, ship, river boat and train give a wide view of the west. This book covers the cattle drives, people moving into the west and the building of the railroad. I hope that this in not the last book in the series. Gene Engene narrated the entire series. His voice goes well with the wild frontier.

    Have been an avid reader all my life. Started with comic books and had read all Shakespeare's plays & most sonnets by 10th grade. Average reading or listening to a new book ever 2 or 3 days.

    "Glad the series continues"

    Read first 3 books in order and enjoyed them very much, especially the descriptions of the times, places, and lives of ordinary people. Was a bit disappointed in the 3rd book ending just as the 2 brothers found each other.

    Very glad to see book 4 come out to continue the story of these 2 men and their lives together.

    Gene Engene is the perfect reader for any western. His voice characterisations and delivery are perfect.

    "I miss my friends."
    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the whole series back to back, and enjoyed Rhode's homey stories filled with action plus the details of cowboy life. There are some slow parts, but the story jumps from one action scene to another--often with realistic brutality. Gory scenes are short but to the point. No sex, no swearing. Magically, the characters have money and can pay their staff a healthy wage without balancing a budget, like the rest of us. The books are idealistic without the details of quarrels with staff, nit picky daily irritations and marriage quibbles, but I liked them all. I love the financial details of how much things cost in the 1860's and how a business and town grew. The characters all have difficult life problems that they work through. They show kindness to each other and strangers. The crooks and thieves of the era are dealt with quick cowboy justice.

    When I first heard the reader, I hated his slow pace. On the second try, I got used to it and was impressed by the range of characters he played. The women weren't perfect, but the men and dumb crooks were great.

    All in all, I enjoyed the series and miss my friends. I'd like to check out Cody's house, and sit on the porch and rock while I listen to their stories, watch the mining town process gold and enjoy the beauty of the waterfall.

    "A Bit Too Sappy Ending"

    Overall this is a nice story. However it can be surprisingly graphic in describing some of the violent conflicts and then the ending of this one just got a bit too sappy for me. Some of the terminology gets tediously redundant. If you can overlook these flaws, it is nice to read about strong relationships and family bonds without the sordid and baser side of humanity being explored.
