Publisher's Summary

Once again, Marshal Marion Daniels calls on Ruben Beeler for help in righting a terrible wrong. Cecil Man-Bear, one of Marion's old friends, has been crippled, his wife killed, and his daughter stolen by a half-breed. Marion and Ruben take to a trail that leads them far into the Sioux reservation of the Dakota Territory in pursuit of a man called Kills-Many and his band of renegades. With the help of Homer Poteet and an old Indian fighter named Owney Furnish, they make their way into dangerous country on a mission to rescue the daughter and make sure justice is served. It's a long and hazardous ride on the Ogallala Trail.

Reuben is my hero

Any additional comments?

The boys are on the trail again, and this is a long one - all the way to the Dakotas. Reuben gets further educated by Marion, Homer and a new friend, Onnis. They face a formidable villain, a renegade named "Kills Many". As usual they eat well and egg each other on with their loving insults. This story reminds me some of the part of Lonesome Dove where Gus goes after Lame Duck, who has kidnapped a prostitute. Ogallala trail is another great book in a super great series. It is well written with great character creation/development and witty dialog. The author is the narrator and no one could have done it better. He is fantastic.

David Lewis tells a great story.

Would you listen to Ogallala Trail again? Why?

This is a good story but not quite as good as his earlier books. It is still well worth the read. His style is refreshing and his reading is wonderful. Can't wait for his next adventure in the series.

David at his best

Would you consider the audio edition of Ogallala Trail to be better than the print version?

David R Lewis has the ability to add the humor of great friends as they react between each other capturing Southern humor amongst friends

Nice listen

I love old time depictions of early westerns. It was worth the credit. Good "old-timey" narration.

Sensational story telling

First time I ever heard an audiobook. Was apprehensive at first but the author made it sound interesting with different voices. Highly recommended

Deeper than it seems... onto something grand

I devoured all five 'Trail' books in a few weeks. Little gems, these audiobooks, with beautiful, real and touching characters.

Ogallala Trail's storyline is very entertaining. It is, however, not as strong (or 'flowing') as the other four novels in the series. At six hours short, it is an easy and lively listen.

The book is narrated by its author. He is absolutely brilliant in every way. His drawl is superb, the characters are easily recognizable, his voice may break a little at places one couldn't expect the character to become emotional... If you're into good narrators, do not miss this series.

The story gets the reader through the book but the characters/narrator are the real show. Barely concealed under Ruben Beeler's thoughts lies a personal reflexion by the author, and the novel eventually takes a personal twist towards the end.

Overall : rich, real characters, beautiful images, fun story, funny dialogues and a little self-reflexion that's unexpected. I believe Mr Lewis is onto something much bigger in the near future. Let's keep an eye/ear out for his future works, and let's hope he narrates every single one of them.

Another really good book by D. Lewis

I now have all 5 of the Trail series. I have listened to 1 - 4 at least 4 times and this one twice. While the stories are really good, it is the reader that makes it so much fun. I can't explain it, but these books just bring a smile to my face. So get all 5 of them listen in the order written, you won't be sorry.
