Various well-executed sound effects as well as excellent country-style guitar strumming mark the professionalism of this audiobook. Jim Gough, a native Texan and veteran narrator, uses his gravelly voice to provide a living dimension to the portrayal of the three Earp brothers. Braun's fact-based novelization of Wyatt's life in Tombstone, Arizona, in the late 1880s presents his good and evil sides. Wyatt's ruthless ambition to be sheriff pushes him into fights like the one at the OK Corral. Gough easily uses subtle changes in speed, volume, and range to indicate different characters of both genders. Listeners will enjoy his dramatic but relaxing narration of politics and romance on the frontier. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
