"[Willie] Nelson imbues L'Amour's narrative with just the right touch of emotion trickling through his countrified lilt." (The Boston Herald)
This was my first taste of L'amour's writing, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but I found myself thoroughly hooked on the characters and stories of the old West. Willie Nelson's warm and folksy narration in particular was a good fit. I'm looking forward to the stories in Volume 2.
Wille READS the story like he left his car double parked when he went into the studio to record this book. No real touch or crustyness like you would expect from a star like him. I wouldnt say it was a total waste , it DID remind me of my grade school days when the teacher made the worst reader in the class get up and read in front of everybody. Hey willie if you read this....i love everything you do, thats why i bought this book...but give it up..buy a few audiobooks narrated by Keith Carradine and learn how real western fans like to listen to their stories.
this is fun...louis l'amour and the highwaymen (willie, kris, johnny and waylon). if you like both, you will love this audiobook!
