Publisher's Summary

It was a name that caused the most hardened gunmen to break out in a cold sweat: Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie. Pursuing the most wanted men in the Southwest, he knew all too well the dusty trails, the bitter cattle feuds, the desperate killers, and the quiet, weather-beaten towns that could explode into mayhem with the wrong word. He had sworn to carry out the law, but there were times when he had to apply justice with his fists and his guns. They called in the Rangers to handle the tough ones, and there was never a Ranger tougher or smarter than Bowdrie. Join Chick Bowdrie in six classic western adventures from America's favorite storytellers, brought to life in vivid audio dramatizations.

Round 'em up: listen to more Collected Bowdrie Dramatizations.

    "Entertaining!"

    Some interesting stories, but I found the Dramatizations distracting. I love Louis L'Amour westerns, but prefer them without sound effects.

    "A Trail To The West" begins with a narration by Louis L'Amour about his research and personal experiences...then goes into the story about a girls kidnapping.

    The last story, "Bowdrie Follows A Cold Trail" was my favorite of the 6 stories.

    "The way the west really was"

    I truly enjoyed this book. The dramatization was excellent and the bonus discussion by Louis L'Amour make this a worthwhile addition to your audiobook library.

    "If you like westerns you'll love it"

    I very much like the Bowdrie stories. This collection has many of the best tales and is worth listening to more than once. I only wish I could get Volume 2 if there is one.

    Oh yes


    What other book might you compare The Collected Bowdrie Dramatizations: Volume 1 (Dramatized) to and why?

    Vol 2?


    What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    its as if they captured the voice in my head


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Chick always gets his man

    Long ad short of it all, Louis L'Amour wouldn't let his work be presented by anyone but pros.He's never let me down yet.
