Reviews

Nature vs Nurture story; quite well done.

(5 stars)

This story is well worth your time. It's a classic nature vs nurture tale set in the west and featuring characters you come to like and take an interest in their outcomes. And the action will keep you guessing right up to the end of the last chapter -- which way will our young man turn? Excellent Librivox volunteer reader as well :)

a good book to listen to

(5 stars)

Brand had pretty much the same plots and characters (including stunning horses) in his novels, but they are good stories that hold your attention. One odd thing about Kilmer’s reading is the pronunciation of the horse’s name. He started out with Les Sangre (even tho Les is French and Sangre is Spanish) then it was La Sangre and ended with El Sangre.

One of my Dad's favorite top two authors, Max Brand, and Zane Gray.

(4 stars)

Another gift from my Dad's " All Time Favorite " list !!! Dad's happiest day was when he finally was able to retire, so he actually had time during the days to read all the books he had purchased and set aside to read, "Someday" !?!

(3.5 stars)

Kilmer, always a good reader! Some of the story was riveting, especially the first part. Then agonizing in the latter part as the hero seeks to find his true self....new characters and events that seem to go on and on. Galls me that the betrayer was never discovered which would have been an exciting moment.

Reader worth getting used to.

(3 stars)

over a bet, will blood will out or will love and parenting? should the lost occurs before his 25th birthday, he inherits otherwise he is kicked out. he knows nothing of this.

A GOOD WOMAN IS PRICELESS

(5 stars)

A unique western with a unique, feel-good ending. Brand stood at the head of his class and still does. Kilmer's style and voice add pure enjoyment to these stories.

Story as big as the West

(5 stars)

A truly amazing and yet true to story that gripped me from beginning to end.

Awesome

(5 stars)

Makes a girl fall in love with the main character. Plenty of action without it being overbearing. Great read.
