"Guitar-pickin" intros and the rusty-sounding voice of Jim Gough add drama and atmosphere to this wild and woolly tale of a cattle drive from Texas to the Black Hills. Gough, who is called "Mr. Texas" for his drawl, has been heard on numerous radio and TV commercials. Unusual on a trail drive are the women, who help with the cooking and doctoring, as well as riding herd. Gough does an exceptional job portraying them as well as Nelson Story, a Montana rancher and leader of one drive, and Benton McCaleb, a Wyoming rancher and leader of a rival herd. Well-executed, well-placed sound effects and a talented narrator make this an exceptional listening experience. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
