    On the American frontier, every gun tells a story. A boy in Texas waits for a Christmas present he chose from a Montgomery Ward catalog. The present, a brand new, lever action Winchester 1886 and a box of its big .50-caliber slugs, never makes it there. Instead, the rifle is caught up in a train robbery and starts a long and violent journey of its own - from the hands of a notorious, kill-crazy outlaw to an Apache renegade to a hardscrabble rancher and beyond.

    awesome listen

    a different perspective but great Western story. enjoyed the history as well as the story.

    great story

    The action continues from Winchester 1886 with better narration and a great story of a boy becoming a man.
