Publisher's Summary

Matt Bardoul was a good man to have as a friend and a bad one to make trouble with. He was also a single-minded drifter - until he met his match in an outspoken beauty named Jacquine Coyle. She was headed into the Bighorn Mountains with her father and an expedition in search of gold. After Matt signs on to join them, he discovers that there is a group of outlaws in the party, gunfighters and thieves that Matt wouldn't trust for a minute.

At first it's unclear what they are planning, but before long Matt realizes that he's the only man standing between innocent people and a brutal conspiracy of greed, lust, and cold-blooded murder.

Never Disappointed!

I've just recently started reading and listening to Louis L'Amour books, and find I am hooked. Louis L'Amour is one of the all time great story tellers, and I've never been disappointed in any of his novels. His short stories are good, too...but leave me wanting more. Although I've been happy with audiobooks of his short stories.

"Westward the Tide" has everything you'd expect in a good western, and Robert Petkoff is a great narrator for this book.

If you like action, intrigue, with a little history and romance thrown in you should enjoy "Westward the Tide" .

Another Great Read

Robert Petkoff does it again bringing to life Matt Bardoul, a gunslinger and drifter, as he joins an ill-fated wagon train.

One of L'Amour ' s best!

I find this to be one of the best novel length Westerns Mr. L'Amour ever wrote. Not sure if I have read "everything" he wrote, but I think I have.
