Elmer Kelton, celebrated and prolific author of Western fiction, has written a melodrama of sometimes violent tensions between ranchers on the Mexico-Texas border during the 1870s. By virtue of a rather conventional plot and characters--uninspired, albeit serviceable, narration prompted numerous yawns from this reviewer, though aficionados of this genre may have the opposite reaction. Narrator Jonathan Davis's chief virtue is his authentic, manly Southern drawl and intelligent reading. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
