Narrated by the sheriff of Mountain County Colorado in the years after the panic and silver trouble of 1893, this short Wayne D. Overholster yarn tells of a "benevolent despot" a merchant who holds the townspeople at his whim. Until, that is, Rance Collins moves to town and falls in love with the merchant's daughter, Bunny. James Drury performs this story with the laconic tone and drawl that befits the sheriff of a dying town in the Old West. Full of ghost town grit and cowboy idioms this audiobook is a trip down the dusty trails of the past.
Story is good but I chose the book because James Drury was supposed to be reading it. Very disappointed.
I bought this book because it was advertised as ‘narrated by James Drury’. It is not. Story is ok and the narrator is ok. But he is not James Drury. That’s a voice that you can’t mistake. Very disappointing.
