Luke Starbuck knew Death’s designs were as uncompromising as justice, and as cold and final as an unmarked grave. But when Wyatt Earp and his gang were ambushed one moonlit evening and Earp emerged from the barrage of shotgun fire very much alive, Starbuck began to wonder if there was more to the ambitious, flint-eyed desperado than met the eye.

Book 4 of the Longhorn Series is the conclusion of this story. It mainly focuses the families. With death of the older brother's best he contradicts his younger brother for a visit in Colorado. Which is quite a trip by horseback in 1873-1874 from Southern Texas. This book deals with the adventures of trip. I would like to see Dusty Rhodes write an updated version of this series. I would recommend this series to anyone who is a western fan. A very good read.

This book is the second one in a series about the Isoms brothers. It's a very exciting western about their lives as they leave their home and head for Texas where they become town marshals. They later start the "Lone Star Cattle Company". Its a very good western with the gunfights that accompany most western books. As the story goes on the book deals with them getting married. The author, Dusty Rhodes, does a very excellent job at developing the story theme. If you are a fan of books written by Dusty Rhodes and a fan of the narrator Gene Engene than I recommend these two books.

Here is another marvelous Zane Grey novel. In his magnificent style, Zane Grey has crafted a story that’s both moving and exciting with new perils in every chapter. Not only is there gun fighting, cattle rustling and the battle over water holes, but the thrilling capture and winning over of Silvermane, the magnificent wild stallion admired and wanted by every white man and Indian on the desert. All of this is intermingled with tender love between the main character, Jack Hare and the beautiful half-breed maiden, Mescal.

This is another good western by Zane Grey. The book is full of action. My only complaint is that it puts the Mormon's as the bad characters. Sometimes the action slows down but overall I would recommend listening to this book.

This story centers on Federal Marshal Bill Tilghman and his capturing of Bill Doolin and his gang of outlaws.

This book centers in 1889, when Marshal Bill Tilghman goes after outlaw Bill Doolin and bring down his gang. The author Matt Braun has a way of writing that makes his books exciting to listen too. This book has a lot of actions that make it very enjoyable to listen too. Also the narrator William Dufris does a very excellent way of making the difference characters come to life. I have only listened to three books by this author, Matt Braun, but I'm looking forward to listening outs by him. I would highly recommend reading this book.
