Publisher's Summary

Originally published more than 50 years ago, The Big Sky is the first of A. B. Guthrie's epic adventure novels of America's vast frontier. The Big Sky introduces Boone Caudill, Jim Deakins, and Dick Summers, three of the most memorable characters in western American literature. Traveling the Missouri River from St. Louis to the Rockies, these frontiersmen live as trappers, traders, guides, and explorers. The story centers on Caudill, a young Kentuckian driven by a raging hunger for life and a longing for the blue sky and brown earth of big, wild places. Caught up in the freedom and savagery of the wilderness, Caudill becomes an untamed mountain man whom only the beautiful daughter of a Blackfoot chief dares to love. With The Big Sky, Guthrie gives us an unforgettable portrait of a spacious land and a unique way of life.

    Story
    "Not bad, not great"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story moved along well but I didn't find any of the characters particularly engaging- there just wasn't enough development to get there. Overall I thought this was pretty over-rated.


    Would you recommend The Big Sky to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not, doesn't come close to Lonesome Dove as far as westerns go.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrator did a pretty good job, nothing special though.

    "One of my favorites"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book has been a favorite since I was a teenage and I was delighted to find it on Audible. The reader is able to do varied voices for the principal characters. Excellent.
