Publisher's Summary

Here are two exciting stories featuring Lance Kilkenny by beloved Western writer Louis L'Amour.

In "A Man Called Trent", nester Dick Moffitt lies dead, killed by King Bill Hale's riders. His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called "Trent" - an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter.

In "The Rider of Lost Creek," Lance Kilkenny is the fastest gun in the West, but once the gunfight is over, he disappears. Some time back, Mort Davis saved Kilkenny's life. Now Davis needs Kilkenny's help with a pair of feuding ranchers taking over his property.

Listen to the second book first. chapter 21.

The books will be in chronological order if you listen to the second one first at chapter 21. I did not know that but enjoyed them anyway.

Louis L'Amour - A hard act to follow

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes due to the fact that from the very first, the characters are introduced and as the story progresses each feeling is described.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Man Called Trent?

When Trent discovered he was a man of the west with specific values that he would fight for.

Who was the most memorable character of A Man Called Trent and why?

Trent, because he had enough forsight to realize that just being a fast gun wasn't enough. He knew the true gun fighter should stay in the background.

the narration was horrible. The story is slow

the narration was horrible. The story is slow which is uncommon for a Louis L'Amour adventure. I think the narration is what made it the most unbearable. unfortunately I've waited too long to exchange it.

Well spoken characters come alive in this

Rendering an action pack historical encounters with rusters and range wars coming to climax south of the border. Meeting Nita Riordan and finding hopefulness.

Typical Louis L'About greatness. Wonderfully dead and excellent entertainment. Well worth any investment, if you like great westerns.

1st book to listen to.

Jim Gough did an outstanding job on this book. He kept me so involved, that I couldn’t stop listening until it was over.

fine story and good performance

haven't read a Louis L'Amour story for years and have now finished 2 in one book. only regret that the 21deg of the 2 stories is not reversed. My suggestion is you listen to the 2nd one first.

Standard L'Amour but beware....

Two enjoyable stories. As with many L'Amour titles, the plots are essentially similar - fast draw good guy takes on the baddies, with a little help and a beautiful girl in the background. Be honest though, that's why we love L'Amour. BE AWARE though that whether it's Audible or the publisher, for some reason the story that is second on the recording is actually the first chronologically, which is slightly annoying.
