Threads West is a #1 Best Selling novel and has won eight National awards.
The romance of America, her people, her spirit, and the West. The ongoing story of us. This first book and namesake of the eight-novel series is being compared by reviewers and authors to Lonesome Dove and Centennial. The tale bursts with the adventure, romance and promise of historical America and the West.
The epic saga of Threads West begins in 1855 with the first of four richly-textured, complex generations of unforgettable characters. The separate lives of these driven men and independent women are drawn to a common destiny that beckons seductively from the wild and remote flanks of the American West. They are swept into the dangerous currents of the far-distant frontier by the mysterious rivers of fate, the power of the land and the American spirit. Their turbulent journeys are heartbreaking quests intertwined with romance and adversity, passions and pathos, despair and triumph. This is not only their story. It is our story. It is Threads West, An American Saga.

I'm lovin' my brand new Threads West mp3 and again thank you so much for making mp3 available --- I've already listened to mine today ( I also have already read the books)... I personally thought it was most excellent...I'm not sure if it's because its YOUR story and you told the tale with that in mind and you knew exactly how you wanted to tell it, or maybe it's your ranching/Western background so it seemed more "realistic". Honestly, I can't imagine someone else doing it. When you narrate your tale, images of your tale come alive as though it's happening right then. It just wouldn't seem right if someone else told the tale and I believe the tale would lose something. I say that because there is a Western romance author and i just love, love, love all her stories and I buy them just as soon as she has a new one available -- she also has some of her books on mp3 and I decided to download a couple of them so I could listen and multitask - like when I'm outside working in my yard or such... ---anyway, she has a professional narrator and I believe he has narrated every one of her books I've seen so far that are on mp3 -- personally, I don't care for his narration of her stories - I don't find his voice to be pleasing and most importantly I believe the story loses something with him telling her story. There are a lot of busy, busy people nowadays who would love to sit and read a book but just don't have the time and that's where mp3 (in my case that's what I prefer) or audio CD's come in.
All the hype that this was the next great American western saga was not the reality in my opinion. The story overall was good but it skipped around so much and had so many characters that it became very difficult to follow. Of course you have to listen to the next book to find out what happens the ending really leaves you hanging. However, not so much I that I would really care if I listened to the next book. The biggest issue with this book was the narrator, his voice was OK but with every other word you could hear is breath this was really annoying and basically ruined the book for me. All I heard sometimes were puffs of air and I could not understand the words.
