Publisher's Summary

America's richest legends come from the frontier - from the land where the events of a single moment might erase the lines between law and lawlessness, between safety and mortal danger, between heroes and villains. The carefully selected stories in this collection are vibrant proof that the great American West is a fertile ground to storytellers. Here's the most varied collection of short stories, by 17 highly acclaimed Western writers, including works from Spur Award Winners Zane Grey, Will Henry, Elmer Kelton, Matt Braun, Loren Estleman, Gary McCarthy, Bill Gulick and more! Featuring performances by Roseanne Cash, Gary Morris, Ed Asner and Crystal Gayle.

Great Collection!

I just finished listening to this audio book, and it was so good I'm going to purchase the next volume. The writing is crisp, descriptive, and the length of each story is perfect. While the narrators listed are Roseanne Cash & Crystal Gayle, there were other male narrators as well -- excellent narration and recording quality. I highly recommend this collection of shorts.

Best of the west vol. 1

For what this book is it is fine. I am not much on short stories. This book reminded me of the old dime novels that I used to read when I was kid. Not bad but not my cup of tea.
