Listeners who enjoy the nearly lost art of storytelling will treasure this collection of Max Brand stories written in the 1930's. Perhaps a generation of new listeners, especially young adults, will also get to know these classics. Six stories are contained in this set--each on one cassette and each about an hour and a half long. Actor Barry Corbin is the perfect reader for the material. He has a tough, gravelly voice, and his delivery and pacing lure the listener into the atmosphere of the turn-of-the-century West of bloodthirsty bandits, brave cowboys and beautiful women. Especially riveting is "Battle's End," which is about two men who battle the Yukon and each other to possess the great dog, Alec. B.V. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 96]
