THE SUMMER OF 1876 Outlaws, Lawmen, and Legends in the Season That Defined the American West

by | Read by Johnny Heller, Chris Wimmer [Prefact]

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Colonel Custer, Wild Bill Hickok, and Jesse James are iconic names in the history of the American West, and all gained their greatest prominence during the summer of 1876. That three-month span is the focus of this audiobook. Johnny Heller offers a solid narration. His slightly gravelly voice is perfect for the material. The author, Chris Wimmer, generally follows chronological order, so the text moves from one locale to another as he unspools the various stories. But listeners will have no trouble keeping the various themes straight. Wimmer's background includes numerous podcasts, so he was already used to writing for the ear. This is clearly evident in this long-form work. The audiobook is a fun and easy listening experience. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
