Publisher's Summary

Badger Kershaw was becoming a familiar figure on the frontier after the War between the States. Riding an Appaloosa with Lobo, his dog-wolf hybrid, often by his side, he was feared by most outlaws on the dodge on whom there was a bounty. It was not a savory profession, perhaps, but Kershaw was honest about what he did. Frontier lawmen for the most part were accustomed to dealing with Kershaw. When the fugitive was willing to surrender - which was less frequent than it might be thought - Kershaw would bring in an outlaw alive, but it was not an option he encountered very often. Generally it was one man against another, but in what would possibly be Badger Kershaw's greatest feat, the odds were quite different.

Colonel Benjamin Grierson had been Kershaw's commanding officer during the War between the States. When, years after the war's end, Grierson's daughter was one of the four women seized in a train hold-up and taken prisoner, Grierson appealed again to the man who had once served under him to rescue the women from the outlaw gang. Kershaw surprised the army when he chose to do the job entirely alone, despite the incredible odds against him.

A gripping Tale

I have always enjoyed reading a good western story. Until last year I was feeling as if there was no interest in westerns or new authors coming up to replace the old. Then I discovered a number of new authors on Amazon which encouraged me to seek out some more new western authors. In my hunt, I discovered R. W. Stone. Stone is a veterinarian who lives in Florida. Apparently, he has been a life-long fan of western stories. He states that a few years ago he started writing for his own enjoyment and was encouraged to publish his writings. I found he has a classic western writing style and like L’Amour he puts quite a bit of description about the land and customs of the West into the story.

This story opened with a massacre of an Indian village by white men (not Army). Then the story jumps to a young man returning to the Dakotas after serving in the Army during the Civil War. All during the story I kept wondering what the opening had to do with the story of the young man. I was almost getting annoyed when Stone tired it all together. I wished the story had been longer, but I did enjoy it and was left wanting to read more about Badger. I will definitely look for more books by R. W. Stone.

The book is almost five hours. Ramiz Monsaf does a great job narrating the book. Monsaf is an actor and audiobook narrator.
