From someone growing up in the west and being raised and making a living around horses, cattle , guns, and saddles, this is a very entertaining and realistic book.It tends to move right along without endless fillers. Very enjoyable and full of surprises.
The narrator does a very excellent job using different voices to the point of the listener sometimes wondering if it does not have a full cast like a movie.
Excellent combination of fiction and history. Done in the tradition of Louis L'Amour. A must read for fans of the old west.
I gave this book four stars because it held my attention. Many books lately have not done that even though they have had good ratings. I will qualify my rating by underlining that this is a western. If you do not like westerns you will not like this methinks. I could be wrong because this is a good story pretty well told. A bit hokey on the accents from time to time but that does not take away from the action. There is a lot of action and you can get wrapped up in the story. I know I did and listened til it was over. If you are a western fan download and enjoy.
