Publisher's Summary

Rob Finn is joined by William Cody and Lonnie Walters as they begin their journey into the gold country of the west in 1862. They are headed toward Bannack, a town springing up on the banks of Grasshopper Creek, Washington Territory. Soon it would become Idaho Territory, and shortly after that, Montana Territory. But not without the birth pangs that accompany such events.

Rob meets desperate and unscrupulous men such as Henry Plummer, as well as gentle and generous natives who heal and help the strangers in their land. We learn that the treasures of the earth are sought by greedy men on both sides of the Civil War, while lasting friendships are the goal of and reward for precious few hearty souls.

Allan Pinkerton and his staff are along for the journey, as is young William Cody.

    "Solid Western Leaves Room for a Sequel"
    What made the experience of listening to Longshot into the West the most enjoyable?

    Interesting characters - Pinkerton, young Bill Cody. Plausable era accurate action. Good representation of life for how it was. Above all, A.W. Miller!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Longshot into the West?

    I'm interested in the life of Allen Pinkerton, so Finn's (Longshot) developing interaction with Pinkerton.


    What about A.W. Miller’s performance did you like?

    His voice is perfect for the Western genre. I appreciate well done voice acting on audio books. It's a craft that adds so much to my enjoyment. And it is obvious that A.W. Miller prepared for his work here. Pace, character presentation, pronunciation. And that great voice!


    Who was the most memorable character of Longshot into the West and why?

    Longshot. As main character, the story revolves around him. Great historical supporting characters too.


    Any additional comments?

    As I titled this review - be aware that the ending leaves room for further books. I've also read, listened and reviewed the first in this series "Longshot in Missouri". And I'm a fan.
    Thanks for the opportunity to review this audio book!
