Publisher's Summary

If a man won't fight for what is rightly his, then he ain't much account.

With this challenge from his dying father, young Shell Tucker rode out after three men who had stolen the 20,000 dollars his father was carrying. Two of the men he hunted, Doc Sites and Kid Reese, were his friends. Dreaming of adventure, Tucker had wanted to join their gang. But now, with his father gone and the people back home desperately in need of the proceeds from the cattle drive, Shell was determined to uphold his father's reputation and recover their money. He knew the odds were against him. Finding his friends would be difficult. Getting the money back would be nearly impossible.

Tucker on the hunt

What did you love best about Tucker?

Great character who fought hard to keep the promise his father made

What other book might you compare Tucker to and why?

Louis L'Amour books are all good westerns.

Which scene was your favorite?

Tuckers settling of the score with the thief who stole the money (when you listen, you will understand).

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

Tucker was a strong-willed, Who wanted to do what was right to those who trust in his father with the cattle. I enjoyed Tuckers difficult adventures that drove him to make right that was wronged.

another life lesson, from Louis L'amour

Louis Glamour, read by Michael Crouch is again another fine way to spend your hours in traffic. To escape the present day city and travle in your mind horseback from Texas to Colorado to Nevada and Los Angeles in the 1870s it's always a great ride ,when you have Louis L'Amour at your side

A fun read

The narrator has a suitably youthful voice. Here reads well and the story itself is quite gripping.

Any additional comments?

This is another good L'Amour story, done in his normal style. Loving L'Amour like I do, it was very enjoyable. The narration was excellent at well.

One of my favorite Louis Lamour Stories

The transition of the main character from a boy to a famous man is perhaps a tad abrupt. But this is a great read overall and breaks somewhat from the Lamour standard plot. I can’t get through all his books, but this one I enjoyed.

Good Story

What did you like best about Tucker? What did you like least?


Love La More. He is my favorite western writer. I grew up reading his books when I was a kid and he opened up an entirely new world to me through his knowledge of history and how he blends that into a story.

Overall, it's a good book, however, I found it to be very similar to the Proving Trail. I liked them both, but thought the Proving Trail was much better. What these two books do speak to, is the importance of a mentor figure, or someone who can provide a positive influence/guidance in one's life, and La More is masterful at getting that point across.
