Publisher's Summary

He's the son of a cattle rancher. A restless young dreamer who, under normal circumstances, would follow in his father's footsteps. Normal, however, is not his style. Like his famous grandfather and namesake Perley Gates - a hell-raising mountain man with a heavenly name - young Perley wants adventure, excitement, and freedom. And like his grandfather before him, he will find his dream - in the untamed wilds of a lawless frontier. That dream though might just become a nightmare....

After his father's death, Perley strikes out on his own. His first order of business is to track down the grandfather whose name he shares. When he crosses into Oklahoma Territory, young Perley discovers that the trail is full of dead ends - and near-death encounters. Hostile Indians, wanted outlaws, and bloodthirsty killers are just a few of the dangers waiting for him. And the closer he gets to finding the original Perley Gates, the closer he comes to meeting his Maker at the fabled gates they're named for....

An enjoyable listen.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Legend of Perley Gates to be better than the print version?

I think this is a good read or a good listen. Just enough adult content without x rated details. Some profanity without the use of the f bomb. Just enough suspense to keep you entertained without gory recitations. Just enough humor to make you chuckle.

What other book might you compare The Legend of Perley Gates to and why?

It was a light hearted listen. One of the best westerns I have enjoyed listening to.

Which character – as performed by Danny Campbell – was your favorite?

Mr. Campbell did an excellent job on all characters and there were many. Male and female characters portrayed true to the story and the event. Never had to guess who was speaking.

Strong read

Very good book. Catches you fast and keeps you interested until the very last word. Plenty of cowboy saves girl in distress sequences. Almost to a point being silly. But after all that's what we read western stories for, gunfights and heros.

It could have been an excellent book

We were saddened by all the unnecessary swearing. Not once did it enhance the story but did convinced us NEVER to buy another book by this author. Sincerely Charlie Smith

Interesting but a little slow

Great story but it seemed to drag a little. Perley isn't exactly the bang, bang, shoot em up and fist brawl kinda guy that I expected. It is a very well written story but I prefer more action.

Not Bad

Started kind of slow and meandering, but picked up in the second half of the book. Not a lot of gun action, but turned into a pleasant story. I will purchase book 2 when it comes out, hoping for more action.

SUCKS

Narrator horrible
To put Wiliam W. Johnstons name on it should be criminal and fraud.
