These unabridged selections from L'Amour's Frontier Stories are read by Jason Culp, who swings easily into frontier talk without ever sounding like he's mocking it. This volume includes "Shady Takes the Hook," "A Night at Wagon Camp," "Squatters on the Lonetree," "That Slash Seven Kid," and "To Hang Me High." Listening, one marvels at how L'Amour can produce so many characters who have the same broad shoulders, slim hips, and justice-loving approach to life, and yet remain believable, engaging, and unique. Culp's narration, for which he creates different voices for the various main characters, helps with this feat, allowing us a taste of the untamed, and sometimes violent, West.
