Holed up in a cabin in the Idaho hills, the mysterious man who called himself Trent wasn't looking for trouble. It came looking for him. A trigger-happy kid named Cub Hale emptied his gun into an unarmed man. Then he came swaggering after Trent. The girl who ran the gambling hall tried to get him to hightail it. But Trent wasn't buying. Even in that forsaken back country, he knew when a man had to speak with his shooting iron.

This book is an example of why Louis L'Amour is called the 'Greatest Story-Teller of All Time'. I especially enjoyed this book, because the man called Trent (Kilkenny) shows what can be accomplished when using his talents, as well as that of the few Nesters being driven off their land, against great odds. It also includind a little romance to make the picture complete.
The book has great supporting roles, and the narrator did a wonderful job changing his voice for each character.
I have had audible now for about 8 months and have enjoyed expanding my reading into books I would have not read before!
I listened to The Man Called Trent and then ordered this one. Same story. It appears it is a little longer, but it starts word for word. The book is good. Just don't get caught with the two titles!
I first read The Mountain Valley War over 30 years ago, and I have read it probably half a dozen times since. I enjoyed it each time, but I have to say that Jason Culp's reading and voicing really brought it to life. The movie playing out in my mind's eye seemed more vivid and alive with Culp's many voices. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
IS THE SAME BOOK AS MAN CALLED TRENT
THIS IS THE SAME BOOK AS A MAN CALLED TRENT. ONLY THE COVER HAS CHANGED.
