Critic Reviews

"L'Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and more often with a desert heat wave boiling up from a sun-baked paragraph. A master storyteller." (Kirkus Reviews)

Trent

Not Lamour's best work, but then the narrator leaves a lot to be desired. Changes of inflection in the middle of a sentence makes listening difficult. His attempts to dramatize are usually overdone. He does have a good voice, but is NOT a good reader.

Bad Narrator

Louis L'Amour is great, but the narrator of this particular book is terrible. I'd definitely look for another L'Amour before this one.

A Great Book

"Kilkenny" is a GREAT character,one of Louis LAmour's best. I love the narrators (John Tuska) voice, it is perfect for western books. I would highly recommended this book to any one who loves a good western adventure.... You wont be disappointed :)

Give Credit Where Credit's Due

This story was narrated by the late Jim Gough...not John Tuska! Please rectify! Thank you.
