Editorial Reviews

Gruff-voiced James Whitmore, sighing heavily at intervals, performs this classic Western by genre writer Zane Grey with aplomb, bringing a good old-fashioned air of cowboy stoicism to this tale of death, gambling, and gun-slinging.

The Maverick Queen tells the story of Linc Bradway, a man driven by the untimely death of his friend to seek revenge in a town so steeped in crime he might even find himself in over his head. Whitmore’s performance is staid and matter-of-fact, his steady tones rising only occasionally to a sharp crescendo, but his grounded and unhurried approach to narration creates an enjoyable tension with the shoot-‘em-up action of this genuine Wild West tale.

Publisher's Summary

This classic Western is based on the historic character Cattle Kate, whose notorious beauty persuaded cowboys to steal cattle for her. Here is the Maverick Queen, and the cowboy in her power is Linc Bradway, who comes to town looking for the killer of his partner.
