Publisher's Summary

“If a man won’t fight for what is rightly his, then he ain’t much account.” With this challenge from his dying father, young Shell Tucker rode out after three men who had stolen the twenty thousand dollars his father was carrying. Two of the men he hunted, Doc Sites and Kid Reese, were his friends. 

Dreaming of adventure, Tucker had wanted to join their gang. But now, with his father gone and the people back home desperately in need of the proceeds from the cattle drive, Shell was determined to uphold his father’s reputation and recover their money. He knew the odds were against him. Finding his friends would be difficult. Getting the money back would be nearly impossible.

another life lesson, from Louis L'amour

Louis Glamour, read by Michael Crouch is again another fine way to spend your hours in traffic. To escape the present day city and travle in your mind horseback from Texas to Colorado to Nevada and Los Angeles in the 1870s it's always a great ride ,when you have Louis L'Amour at your side

Tucker on the hunt

What did you love best about Tucker?

Great character who fought hard to keep the promise his father made

What other book might you compare Tucker to and why?

Louis L'Amour books are all good westerns.

Which scene was your favorite?

Tuckers settling of the score with the thief who stole the money (when you listen, you will understand).

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Tucker was a strong-willed, Who wanted to do what was right to those who trust in his father with the cattle. I enjoyed Tuckers difficult adventures that drove him to make right that was wronged.

A fun read

The narrator has a suitably youthful voice. Here reads well and the story itself is quite gripping.

Vintage L'Amour

Any additional comments?

This is another good L'Amour story, done in his normal style. Loving L'Amour like I do, it was very enjoyable. The narration was excellent at well.

Cost

Cost for length of book a little prohibitive. The story is ok, tho dragged on a little. I like Mr l'Amore' books but are rather expensive in audible format

Great Story of becoming a man

More great life lessons from Louis L'amour. A story of a sons love and commitment to his fathers memory. I loved hearing Tuckers realization that there was more to growing up that wishful fantasy's.
