The Ranchman


Read by Richard Kilmer (1942 - 2022)

(4.6 stars; 106 reviews)

A fast-paced old time western. Squint Taylor, a rancher and long time resident of Dawes, is challenged by a crooked newcomer for the position of mayor. Through unscrupulous dealings carried on by a crooked Carrington, Squint lis cheated out of winning the mayoral election. Taylor, and some honest citizens fight to retake the town from the Carrington crowd. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true western without one of the main characters being a beautiful young woman. (Summary by Richard Kilmer) (8 hr 18 min)

Rest In Peace, Richard🙏🏻

Only recently, I learned of the passing of Richard Kilmer at 80 years of age. He will be sorely missed by his LibriVox followers, but fortunately, he left us with hundreds, perhaps thousands, of hours of listening pleasure. Rest In Peace, my friend. 🙏🏻 March 2023
