A veteran of over 75 audiobook productions, Norman Dietz reads this realistic, myth-busting Western with dramatic flair. He sounds like an Old West cowboy character; his voice is gravelly and terse. He makes the story so real one can smell the blood and sweat. It's 1881 in the Arizona Territory. The historic gunfight at the O.K. Corral has occurred, and the Earps and Doc Holliday have been arrested. The story includes negotiations with the sheriff, Doc Holliday's beating of Big Nose Kate, and Wyatt Earp's assignation with a prostitute. Dietz struggles with the female voices, but this account of the ultimate Western adventure is top-notch. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
