The story of two horse traders swindling their way around early 1900s Tennessee becomes an engrossing audiobook, thanks to the narration talents of Don Hagen. Sometimes gruff and other times sweetly humorous, Hagen's tone captures the time period with universal appeal. He chooses to take a subtle approach to various characters' voices, and his skill with transitions and variations is such that the listener can easily follow along. When protagonists Charles and Billy find themselves the unfortunate owners of a vicious black horse, they make personal and professional choices that promise, or threaten, to change their lives forever. Reminiscent of the work of Larry McMurtry and Larry Watson, this audiobook has the power to transport the listener to an earlier America.
