Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

In the early 1890s, after the financial panic, Colorado is changing from mining to ranching. A local merchant, Eli, holds most of the money and the power in the county. Then a stranger arrives and starts to court the merchant's daughter - and the problems begin.

James Drury is not narrating

Story is good but I chose the book because James Drury was supposed to be reading it. Very disappointed.
