Robert Foxworth provides a smooth, skillful but otherwise unremarkable reading of the thirteenth book in historian Terry Johnston's Plainsmen series. The story details the battles of the Cheyenne and Lakota against U.S. Army troops under the command of Colonel Nelson Miles in 1877, and includes Johnston's recurrent hero, Seamus Donegan, now a husband and father. Foxworth's speaking style alters slightly, marking effective transitions, as the scenes switch from Army encampment to Indian village, from soldier to warrior. While Foxworth's deep, masculine voice is easy on the ear, the actor adds little to an already slow-moving story. S.E.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
