Sad that this trilogy is over

Although all three of Grey's "border" trilogy books can stand alone, they are best read in chronological order. "The Last Trail" was a fitting end to the series. The narration was excellent and conveyed the action well. This series is my favorite Audible purchase. These books are more timely, IMHO, than James Fennimore Cooper's "Leatherstocking Tales." The prose is not as dated.

The Last Trail...too bad!

Another great Zane Grey book and the last in the trilogy. I wish it would have continued. He was/is one of the best writers of all time. I didn't start reading his books until I was older and mature enough to appreciate his writing style and his descriptions. He is one of my favorites and his books are well worth listening to

I'm sorry it was the last

What made the experience of listening to The Last Trail the most enjoyable?

To be able to listen to someone else bring the action to life while I was able to close my eyes and see it.

What other book might you compare The Last Trail to and why?

I compare it to "Betty Zane" and "Spirit of the Border" since they are all about the same characters.

Which character – as performed by Michael Prichard – was your favorite?

Lew Wetzel.

Who was the most memorable character of The Last Trail and why?

Wetzel because of his feelings for Betty Zane and his hatred of the Indians and their hatred of him.

Any additional comments?

Listening to Mr. Pritchard made the story come alive and I enjoyed his narration very much.
