Publisher's Summary

"The best men I've known have been cowmen. There's a code they live by - it's their way of life. It starts with an abiding reverence for the good Lord. They're taught to honor and respect their parents and to share both blanket and bread. Their words are their bond, a handshake their contract. They're good stewards of his creation, the land. They believe the words in his book.

Learn from these men - from their stories of triumph over tragedy, victory over adversity, for the wisdom of others blows where it wishes - like a Louisiana wind." (Daniel Hubbard Willis, Jr., 1900)

This is the story of such men....

From master storyteller Randy Willis, an action-packed Western saga inspired by a true story.

Great stories about life as a cowboy

Would you listen to Louisiana Wind again? Why?

Yes, I have listened twice already. It is a great book and the narrator has that kind of voice that makes him a great story teller.

What other book might you compare Louisiana Wind to and why?

The other Louisiana books by the same author. Same style of writing.

Which scene was your favorite?

The telling of the mom who set out the money, whiskey and Bible to determine her son's fate. She decided he would be a politician.<br/><br/>

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Many times I laughed out loud.

Wonderful Family History

Would you consider the audio edition of Louisiana Wind to be better than the print version?

Definitely, the mood and tone were very realistic

What did you like best about this story?

These all seemed like real tales. Read more like a memoir of a great man, not a novel.

What about Tom Lennon’s performance did you like?

I can imagine this is actually what they sounded like. Slow and laid back as befitting the time and local.

Any additional comments?

Great little book as a follow up to Three Winds Blowing and even 12 Years a Slave.

Little known part of US History.

Where does Louisiana Wind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high. Lot's of interesting topics in such a short book. The period shortly after the Civil War is not something I have read about before.

What other book might you compare Louisiana Wind to and why?

Three Winds Blowing. This is a continuation of the family history.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. Each chapter is a little complete story so you can stop after each if you want.

Any additional comments?

Good little book. I thought the narrator did a pretty good job of sounding authentic to the time and place.
