Western • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1973

Acclaimed Western writer Elmer Kelton offers a tale based on firsthand accounts of drought-stricken Texas in the 1950s. It’s the story of Charlie Flagg, a hardworking farmer who has always squeaked by—but who finds it increasingly difficult to do so as the pressure intensifies to sell his land to the government. Narrator George Guidall is the quintessential Flagg, a believable, likable, honest Texan who will capture listener's hearts and minds. Guidall's tone is gritty and rough, his pronunciation true to form. He brings his audience back a generation to a time when everything was hard to come by. Listeners will find it hard not to keep a glass of water nearby. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
