Publisher's Summary

In this Ralph Compton Western, the Strange twins find themselves in double trouble.... 

Young Jed and Tim Strange lost their father to an outlaw's bullet, and now, their mother has succumbed to a fatal illness. Unable to farm their land due to a lack of funds, the twins set out to find their sister - who left home to avenge their father's death more than a year ago. 

Farm life hasn't prepared the twins for the rough-and-tumble cow towns west of Missouri. Before they even begin their search, they're accused of a murder they didn't commit. Just barely escaping a posse's rope, the twins are on the run - wounded, hounded by the law, and desperately seeking the true killers....

Daneal is now Danny

I enjoyed this book. I'm still stuck on how she can hide her gender for all that time but I didn't dwell on it too long. Lots of action. Hopefully the next book will have a dog added to the cast of characters. That would make the last book in the series perfect

Who is Danny Dugging?

Ralph Compton is one of my favorite Aurthor's. I have read or listened to many of his Audio Books and he has never disappointed me . He knows what most Western enthusiasts want in this genre and he comes through.

This the story of the Strange family wanting revenge on the men that killed their Pa.
They robbed him and left him swinging from a Oak tree by the road one day. No spoiler's, because I hate it when someone does that in a review.

This is one of my favorite stories, filled with lots of action to keep me not wanting to put the book down.

I also liked the Narrator, Jason Culp who did a fantastic job. He had the voices of many characters to switch between and make them sound the same as before. He also has the knack for emerging you into the situation at hand. It is almost like watching a movie the way he describes each character. It makes the story more interesting when one gives you a feeling of what the environment is like. I applaud him for not being one of those sucking chest breather's, they only anoy me.

I'm summary, I will say if you read or listen to this story, I promise you, if you want to know how the Old West was in the eighteen hundreds, you found it. Also, this story has a surprising twist at the end I wasn't expecting.
