Western • 3 hrs. • Abridged • ©

A six-time winner of the Golden Spur Award, Elmer Kelton reads his fast-paced story, breathing life into his memorable characters with a real Texas accent and a delightful baritone voice. The main character is Joey Shipman, a 12-year-old orphan whose nasty step-mother is trying to get rid of him in order to inherit the Shipman farm. Trying to help Joey are his whiskey-soaked cousin, a famous outlaw and a San Antonio prostitute. Guitar, harmonica and other music bring a country style to this excellent production. Truly a family experience--children of all ages will enjoy. S.C.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
