Two brothers: one a gunfighter trying to escape his past, the other a pioneering cattle rancher. Neither knows the other is alive, both struggle to make their own way against overwhelming odds. Through death, birth, gunfights, hangings, scratching the dirt for wealth with no guarantees, hostile Indians and corrupt bandits, the chances of success are sometimes as elusive as smoke on the wind. Nevertheless, the foundation of our country was forged out of such men and women who fought all this and more to make their place in the sun and in American history.
Round 'em up: listen to another novel in the Longhorn Series.

I am an avid eclectic reader.
Gene Engene did a good job narrating this story. I started with book one in the series and have listened in order. The story is interesting but at times I was impatient and wanted to hurry the story as the suspense was getting to me. Was interesting that one brother was a rancher the other a miner. Both were occupation that build this country. The first train ride out of Denver was interesting. Can not wait to start book four.
Dusty Rhodes is a wonderful author, whom I've just recently discovered. The Longhorn Series is very well written and Gene Engene gave a great performance.
Like Louis L'Amour, Dusty Rhodes has the ability to draw you into the story, to depict the characters and their surroundings without going into great detail.
The one thing I would change if I could, is the abrupt changing from one character to the other without warning. If you are not listening intently it takes awhile to realize the scene and characters have changed.
If you like westerns, you will not be disappointed, they're great entertainment.
A thick lawn, running water, and a tree to sit under. That's close to heaven!
I stumbled onto this series by pure accident , but after listening to what the life was like, I can't wait to hear more. The story and narration was fantastic.
I have listen to all 4 in order which is the best way to go. Great narrator. If westerns are your thing don't miss these four novels.
As good as the first two. The anticipation with the two brothers kept me waiting and waiting to see what would happen.
Love this series- a great one for the female listeners too!
