Publisher's Summary

Daniel Provost is the son of a farmer. Living up to his father's high standards for the farm is very hard work, but his life is basically comfortable and a loving woman is waiting to become his wife. When a well-traveled stranger, bearing a story of Jim Bowie's legendary silver mine, appears at the farm, Daniel might just throw away everything for the chance at adventure he thought had passed him by.

Not the best narrator

I would advise listening carefully to the sample to make sure the narrator will hold up over the entire time it takes to finish the book. That's not to say this is a bad reader, but perhaps not a good fit for this particular writer.

Otherwise, I found the story reasonably entertaining and humorous at times.
