Monte Walsh | [Jack Schaefer]

Monte Walsh

A classic about the American West and the life and times of one tough cowboy, Monte Walsh. Partial to pretty women, gambling, and practical jokes, Monte doesn't have to look far to find trouble.

As Monte grows older, though, and the West inevitably changes, he resists changing with it, and shows his dedication and loyalty to the cowboy way of life.

    Story
    "Timeless, loping, Western Classic"

    Of course still revered by those who care to remember as among the genre's highest achievements. Overflowing with hard, simple courage, high spirits, wild humor and the passage of time forever into the immutable past. Episodic and meandering, marked by thrilling action and life and death and friendship. At it's center, an unforgettable character for whom change is unthinkable and almost a crime to contemplate. While the colorful characters around him grow and move on to higher achievement in the notice of the wider world, they seem the poorer for it against Monty Walsh.

    "Right performance....great book"
    What about Eric G. Dove’s performance did you like?

    The nuances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. Wanted to hear it, but wanted it to last.


    Any additional comments?

    Haven't enjoyed a book this much in long time. Can't imagine anyone else reading it.
