(4 stars)

great story just a shame the writer went over the top with the characters prowess he sounds like a cross between a wild animal and a super hero. saying that I was still glued to the story.

Delightful


(5 stars)

This was an interesting story with a pace that moved well. The descriptions were interesting without being elaborate. The reader, Mr. Maroney, was excellent and I hope to hear more stories read by him.

Very Interesting Story, Very Well Read


(5 stars)

A. E. Maroney reads this book as if he himself is Henry Wear. Some parts of the story sounds very much like the life of Daniel Boone.
