The Quirt


Read by Tom Penn

(4.5 stars; 35 reviews)

Britt Hunter is a small fish in a big pond. His little ranch, the Quirt, has a few hundred head of cattle; the neighboring ranch, the Sawtooth, has tens of thousands. Britt and the other small timers manage to scrape by, but only at the sufferance of the Sawtooth. And the Sawtooth is always interested in expanding. When Britt’s city-bred daughter comes for a visit and witnesses a murder, she inadvertently puts the Quirt and the Sawtooth on a collision course. ( Tom Penn) (6 hr 26 min)

it make s me wonder why there are no reviews. this is a great western and the reader is excellent. I like it when narrators draw you into their story and Tom Penn fits the bill perfectly! thank you Mr Penn. thank you librivox

change of pace


(3 stars)

this story is a bit darker than many of the other stories by the author. backshooting, murder, land swindling and even a degenerate politician. enjoyable if at times frustrating
