Comfortable in his new life in Deer Run, young Ruben Beeler is called away by Marshal Marion Daniels to help in an investigation of murder and mutilation north of St. Joe. That begins a search for killers and leads the men northward into unfamiliar territory, pitting them against a family of outlaws who have ruled Nodaway County since before the Civil War.
Push comes ta shove right smart, an' things git hot an' heavy quick, as even Rube, an' Marion, an' Homer, out numbered an' outgunned, take to the dodge. It comes to be some desperate for all of 'em afore they git off the Nodaway Trail.

David Lewis' writing will stand up with the best western books ever written. How does it get any better than this--well he reads his books with a style that makes them even better and more memorable. These are classic tales that never drag.
Just what I expected. Another great piece of work from David Lewis. Not only does he tie the story together from Deer Run but he adds some excellent emotion to the list of great work. His performance for the list of characters was really great.
Just an old retired guy, eyesight not as good as it was, so really enjoy listening to these books. Been listening for about 6 years.
I have listened to all of the Trail series twice. While the stories a very good, it's the reading done by the author that makes the listen great. I have laughed out loud at many of the different slang terms the charters use through out the book. Hope Mr Lewis has more of these stories coming.
I guess that I am a fan.
Audio - having the author read brings the characters to life exactly how their meant to be. Lewis has great vocal range and delivery. Better than any reading I've heard and that's after listening to all the Song of Ice and Fire series, The Millennium trilogy and countless other books.
Laughed plenty, maybe cheered some when alone in the car...
Lewis' Trail series are the only books I'll listen to over and over. And all my friends who've listened to them do the same thing... The stories have a great flow, no dragging on at any point and develop highly relatable characters. They're tough people in a hard era of life in a relatively young and unsettled American midwest. If you have a problem with the OCCASIONAL swear word, go read/listen to children's books. If you want great stories that depict life in the wilds of Missouri as it really was and how it really sounded, these books are unparalleled.
I enjoyed all the characters and David's ability in making them all so individual each with different traits.
Reminded me that there are many times we need to be lighthearted and enjoy each other.
As I see this author, David R. Lewis, as a gifted author bring the story and individuals to life, an yet chose to use our Lords name in vain so frequently bothered me. Slang at times can be used ok in stories for emphasis and humor without using the Lords name in vain. I do appreciate this author and enjoy his story lines greatly. Keep up the good work maybe without using our Lords name in vain.
The use of profanity is completely unnecessary and offensive and detracts from a delightful story and excellent performance by Mr. lewis.
