Publisher's Summary

Ordered to hold an abandoned army post, John Dunbar found himself alone, beyond the edge of civilization. Thievery and survival soon forced him into the Indian camp, where he began a dangerous adventure that changed his life forever. 

Set in 1863, the novel follows Lieutenant John Dunbar on a magical journey from the ravages of the Civil War to the far reaches of the imperiled American frontier, a frontier he naively wants to see "before it is gone".

Excellent Book with Both and Action

Great story and thought provoking. It makes you yearn for a time in history when nature was valued.

A timeless classic

A beautiful fable. It never happened but it should have. A requiem for an ancient way of life that is gone forever. Uplifting and tragic in equal measure.

great story! great narration!

haven't seen this movie about 50 times in my life I finally got around to reading the book. I was not disappointed! The book is even better than the movie, as this so often the case. and the narration by George godell is fantastic!

One of my all time favorites

One of my all time favorite stories read by one of my all time favorite narrators! I was so happy to finally see this one on Audible. May you rest with peace, Michael.

Narration is horrible.

I hope amazon makes available a copy of this book with a different narrator. The guy who did lonesome dove did a fantastic job; maybe they can get him.

Narration is painful

One of my favorite stories of all time, but the performance ruins the whole thing. Narration is choppy and he stops after about every three words, causing unnecessary, jarring pauses.

Beautiful book

I love this book, but I'm afraid the narrator's bland disjointed delivery meant I couldn't go more than a few chapters! it's a good I have it in paperback too!
