This fetching yarn of romance and derring-do contains non-stop action and wonderful characters like the mysterious Nez Perce Chief Whitewater, the evil Bailey Harbor, and the mountain man Pick Boone. Nofziger's large and colorful cast and exquisite storytelling bring to life the old west with all the color and verve commanded by his friend, the late Louis L'Amour, who also makes a cameo appearance.

"Lloyd James matches our hero Del Tackett's 'aw-shucks' narrative style to create a real Western atmosphere. Reading with quiet drama, James draws listeners in....With plenty of 'bad guys' ever present, James and Nofziger together foster an atmosphere of suspense, tension, and mystery." (AudioFile)
I really enjoyed this book especially since I live in Montana. The odd thing is the book starts off talking about Cut Bank Montana but soon it switches to calling this town Cut Back.
The refrences to Louis L'Amour's Sackett are fun. The action is fast paced.
I'm an avid listener with over 1000 books in my library. I have a job that requires me to travel about 1000 miles per week.
Fun story even though it is a little predictable.
Readers of this genre will enjoy the references to other western sagas. Hope to see more of this author and character.
