This is the first of Larry McMurtry's new four-volume series about the American West of the 1830s. Each will focus on a river--the Missouri, the Yellowstone, the Rio Grande, and the Brazos. In this book, we follow the Berrybenders down the Missouri; they're a family of English aristocrats with limitless wealth and eccentricity and no visible qualms about matters sexual. Henry Strozier has a straightforward narrative style that helps propel the plot without getting in the way. He is confronted with a daunting cast of male and female characters--the upper class, frontiers-men, trappers, Indians, English, French, and Americans--which he manages quite well. Some accents slip, but the listener will never be confused about who is speaking. A good listen. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
