Publisher's Summary

Framed for murder, Dewey "Mac" McKenzie is running for his life. Though Mac's never even made a pot of coffee, he talks his way onto a cattle drive heading west as a chuckwagon cook. Turns out he has a natural talent for turning salt pork and dried beans into culinary gold. He's as good with a pot and pan as he is with a gun, which comes in handy on a dangerous trail drive beset with rustlers, hostile Indians, ornery weather, and deadly stampedes. 

Mac can hold his own with any cowboy twice his age. At least until the real showdown begins . . . 

Trail hand Deke Northrup is one mean spit in the eye. Before long, he's made enemies with all his men. When Mac learns that Northrup is planning to double-cross the herd's owner, he stands up to the trail boss and his henchman. He might be outgunned and outnumbered, but Mac's ready to serve up some blazing frontier justice with a healthy helping of vengeance . . .

Need a different narrator

This narrator is not suited for a Western. George Guidall or Jack Garrett, previous narrators, we’re so much better. This narrator Danny, doesn’t vary his voice between characters. He also doesn’t have the emotions required for the story.
