Narrator Tomm Furch brings gusto to this unique Western. Civil War veteran Beau Boone meets Mr. Pettigrew when he's knocked over by a drunk whom Pettigrew is tossing from the Angel Cloud Saloon. The Shakespeare-quoting, gun-toting Boone, who has an ill-fitting peg leg, has come to Nemesis in a smelly cattle train. Crotchety Pettigrew, whom Furch makes sound like a genuine cowboy, treats Boone to a steak and beer to compensate for his unfortunate "welcome." Soon Boone is hired as security for the rowdy saloon, where he meets the vengeful Wilkenson family and articulate Miss Alice, Pettigrew's partner--each distinctly rendered by Furch. Listeners can almost see the goober shells on the floor of the bat-wing-doored bar. Most satisfying are the realistic romance and the optimistic conclusion.
