Publisher's Summary

This is a story about a young man's journey into manhood and the discovery of his true calling in life. The story asserts the essential human right of each person to determine the course his or her life should take. But sometimes civilization gets in the way and lives don't unfold naturally. It is the backwoods nobility of big Dan Matthews, his gentle dignity, innocence, and powerful presence, as well as the love and admiration of a beautiful young woman, which ultimately sets things right in this wonderful story of the Ozarks.

Starts a little slow,....

.....but builds to quite a sastifying climax, well worth the trip to a world that is no more.

Horrible narration and poor quality of audio

Was looking forward to another Harold Bell Wright creation after the superb "Shepherd Of The Hills" book. The narration on this book is just bad. It sounds like it was recorded using a cheap microphone plugged into an old cassette recorder. Waste of money. The dictation of the narrator is very hard to listen to. Poor inflection, dull and drab.

It plays like a Western

It was an entertaining listen. Lots of likeable characters. The language and style were a little archaic. But I enjoyed.
