(5 stars)

Good story. Excellent reader.

Anther good cattle drive tale!


(4.5 stars)

Another good cowboy cattle driving tale by Andy Adams. This one gets a half star reduction only because of the complex legalities of this particular tale (I'm still not sure if I understand the finer points!), but the author's knowledge of cattle, drives, and the west remains superb throughout. As always, this particular Librivox volunteer reader's voice and pacing are perfect for a western story.

GOVERNMENT CONTRACTORS STILL ROB US


(5 stars)

A fine, informative story. i have listened to all of the Andy Adams books, and I have learned much about the old cattle trails. Read all them.
