In each of these six classic stories, Chick Bowdrie, Texas Ranger, rides into trouble in a different town, acting as detective and officer of the law rolled into one. As L'Amour himself says in a delightful introduction, the West itself is a character in all his stories. Bowdrie must read the land and its signs if he is to survive and solve the mysteries facing him. In this entertaining collection, the outlaws Bowdrie hunts often become sympathetic figures, strange allies deserving respect. This full-cast production offers an engagingly theatrical approach with a variety of voices and sound effects. Listeners should expect to hear hooves, whinnies, and gunshots, in addition to a lot of dialogue from the Old West. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
