The foothills of the western mountains are the setting for this romance/Western, stocked with all the traditional characters: the evil, scheming banker out to take the poor woman's land; the woman who won't sell the ranch; and the handsome ranchhand who helps her. The twist to the plot is that a mountain militia group wants the land. Rosenblat's rough, gravelly voice reflects both the terrain and the temperaments of the characters; she softens it slightly to represent the women. In a curt, brisk manner Rosenblat captures the tension of the tale and the ruthlessness of the bad guys. Stock plot aside, Rosenblat's rapid reading ensnares the listener through the surprise ending.
