Slaughter takes place at the point in history when white hunters begin to make noticeable inroads on the once seemingly unlimited supply of buffalo and the plains Indians realize their way of life is being threatened. The story is told alternately from the white and Native American viewpoints, with strong, sympathetic characters on both sides. Bill Hudson sounds like a rugged outdoorsman but delivers a good range of characters of both sexes with British and American accents. A slight flaw in his fine performance is a puzzlingly inept pronunciation of occasional Spanish terms. Yet, from the very beginning listeners will find a good tale well read.
