It would take DNA testing to prove that George Guidall is not Hewey Calloway. Guidall's presentation of the aging cowboy/hero brings laughter and tears simultaneously. This work is set in the smiling country of west Texas in 1910 when the Wild West is changing dramatically. Guidall meanders through the twin issues of the fading glory days of the true American cowboy and the declining physical prowess of a man who defines a cowboy narrowly: A man is only a cowboy if he's in the saddle. Guidall translates this gem of a Western into pure gold with his mellow, thoughtful reading. M.D.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
