Publisher's Summary

These memorable stories, read by award-winning narrators, are written by the finest Western writers who ever lived: Zane Grey, Max Brand, and Louis L'Amour.

In "Tappan's Burro" by Zane Grey, the prospector Tappan's only company was his burro, Jenet, who knew the trails and waterholes better than Tappan. She tracked with him faithfully, and he repaid her with a final, supreme effort of will. In "Black Jack" by Max Brand, a spinster takes in the infant son of gunfighter Black Jack Hollis. The boy grows up headstrong and wild. Would he break laws and hearts like his infamous father? In "The Trail to Crazy Man" by Louis L'Amour, Charles Rodney is shanghaied into forced labor on a merchant vessel. Before he dies aboard ship, he deeds part of his ranch to Rafe Caradec, whom he hopes will protect his family.

Round 'em up, cowboy! Don't miss more from Louis L'Amour, Zane Grey, and Max Brand.

What the Critics Say

"L'Amour is the kind of storyteller who makes the wolves come out of the woods to listen." (People)
"Zane Grey was a literary giant. He had the knack of tying his characters into the land and the land into the story." (Erle Stanley Gardner, creator of Perry Mason)
"Brand's West is peopled with characters from mythology grander and much more eloquent than average dime-novel heroes. Patrick Cullen does an excellent job in his narration of this action-packed adventure." (Library Journal)

    "Old West"

    This is a great compilation of Old West literature. I am a big fan of Louis L'mour and Max Brand in book form and very much enjoyed the audio aspect of their writings.

    "Wanting more like this... Please"

    Three books for the price of one. A far better value than Volume I of the series. And every minute a pleasure. Tappan's Burro may have been the least fun, at least for my taste. The other two stories left me wishing for more of the same.
