Jonathan Davis offers a slow-paced, natural-sounding reading of Kelton's Western. The "Hard Trail" becomes ruthless outlaw Luther Cordell's path to redemption as he rediscovers his compassion, humanity, and even kindness. When Sheriff Tom Blessing is killed during a jailbreak, ex-Texas Ranger Andy Pickard pursues Luther as the killer. Along the way, Andy is perplexed by the enigma of Luther's kindness to strangers. Davis portrays a wide variety of characters of the era and gives them unique identities. As Davis depicts the conflicts—internal and external—of both men, listeners will gain insights into nineteenth-century Texans. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2010]
