Clint Black is the heavy in another Smoke Jensen potboiler. The evil and ornery Black is a cattle kingpin with henchmen and guile to spare, as evidenced when Jensen and company dare to move cattle through Black's turf. As listeners will often find in these two-fisted productions, the Mountain Man episode is larded with hammy sound effects and cowboy pulp characters brought to life by Doug van Liew, who clearly wore chaps and spurs throughout the reading. A horse opera with a moral, for those who like their justice Old West-style, COURAGE OF THE MOUNTAIN MAN is good escapist fun. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
