Audible Editor Reviews

The full-bodied story of Lewis Wetzel's efforts to bring peace to the Fort Henry area is part of Grey's Ohio River trilogy, based on the adventures of his own great-great-grandmother. Wetzel is also a genuine historical personage. Michael Prichard is an outstanding narrator who pumps life and emotion into all the characters. His female voices for Nell and Kate, for example, are low-key and believable. His empathy for them during the violent situations they encounter resonates in his presentation. Prichard's slightly grisly sounding voice is perfectly suited for portraying the many hardy men and women who tamed the wild land of early America.

Publisher's Summary

As the Revolutionary war draws to an end, the violence on the frontier only accelerates. The infamous Girty brothers incite Indians to a number to massacres, but when the Village of Peace, a Christian utopian settlement is destroyed, the settlers know they will have to hunt them down.

Lewis Wetzel, known to the Indians as the Death Wind, undertakes this mission of revenge. The stakes increase when he learns of a planned attack on Fort Henry, and must single-handedly turn the tide in this bloody border war. This is the second book in the Ohio River Trilogy.

Don't miss Books 1 and 3 of the Ohio River Trilogy, Betty Zane and The Last Trail.

    "Compelling Listening"

    As with "Betty Zane," I couldn't turn my ipod off. Gray's "border" trilogy are my favorite Audible purchases to date. Great narration, great story, wonderfully descriptive. It's hard to believe that this book is over 100 years old. The writing style is not of the 21st century, but is fresh and timeless.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Ohio River Trilogy books! Prichard does a very good job at the narration.
