Publisher's Summary

The open West was a land where wanderers could find themselves a home--a home to fight for, to be changed by, sometimes to die for. Jed Ashbury was one such journeyman, taking on the identity of a dead man. Allen Ring was another: he'd won his plot of land in a card game only to find he had to win again with a gun.

From a has-been boxer to a ranch hand taking on his bosses' troubles, the characters in these classic Louis L'Amour short stories are all "riding for the brand" - staying loyal to what matters, staking the West with their courage and their blood.

Loved it!

Listened to it with my husband. It was like watching a motion picture with our eyes closed. Great narration, sound effects and dramatisation. We will definitely be listening to more from this collection as they are our new favorite!

I love almost All Louis L'Amour!

This is a great dramatazation. Although some details were changed from the original, the general story line is not lost. Both this dramatazation and the original really bring out the internal struggle that Jed Asbury has over lying concerning his identity to gain what is not rightfully his. Well done!
