Publisher's Summary

Josey Wales was the most wanted man in Texas. His wife and child had been lost to pre-civil War destruction and, like Jesse James and other young farmers, he joined the guerrilla soldiers of Missouri-men with no cause but survival and no purpose but revenge.

Love this book. Love this character.

Would you listen to Gone to Texas - A Josey Wales Western again? Why?

I would and I will. Strong character with a very emotional connection.

What other book might you compare Gone to Texas - A Josey Wales Western to and why?

Just a great western with a deep, deep emotion under it all. You will root for this bad guy from start to finish.

Which character – as performed by Chet Williamson – was your favorite?

Chet did great and he can even sing....a little bit.... Great work.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Listen to while driving and I hated getting to work and I looked forward to the drive.

Any additional comments?

Thank God there is a sequel. I want more, more more.

Gone to Texas and Beyond

Any additional comments?

I've read the book years ago, but listening to it (while driving across the deserts of Utah and Nevada) let me enjoy this familiar tale in a new light. It's a great story made even better by Chet Williamson's reading. I look forward to listening to the sequel.

Average.

Voice is toned to simulate the various characters. The female voice acting was silly sounding. Ambient sound effects and music would really make it.
