Publisher's Summary

Rye Tyler was 12 when his father was killed in an Indian raid. Taken in by a mysterious stranger with a taste for books and an instinct for survival, Rye is schooled in the hard lessons of life in the West. But after killing a man, he is forced to leave his new home. He rides lonely mountain passes and works on dusty cattle drives until he finds a job breaking horses. Then he meets Liza Hetrick, and in her eyes he sees his future. After establishing himself as marshal of Alta, he returns, only to discover that Liza has been kidnapped. Tracking her to Robbers' Roost, Rye is forced to face the man who taught him all he knows about books, guns, and friendship. Two old friends...one woman: Who will walk away?

Simple but kept me thinking

Louis Lamour writes it where you feel like you could be the main character I can almost hear the leather creek in in the saddle and taste the dust from the trail.

Always Good Listening!

I am a huge fan of Louis L'amour, I have read every book he has written. So it is nice to get to have the books read to me for a change. I also like the fact that these books don't have a lot of swearing and sex, I can listen to this book and not worry about my kids. I reall liked the narrator.

Good but predictable

Narrator is great. Louis L'amour is predictable but comfortable. Always count on him to spin a good tale but repeat himself a little too much.
