by | Read by Michael Martin Murphey

Western • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

This story of a real cowboy's life in the late nineteenth century includes long, dusty cattle drives, stampedes, river crossings and Indian attacks. The characters who people the "Wild West" are interesting and vividly described. However, Murphey is not an inspired reader. He has a pleasant voice but fails to add drama or intensity with pacing or even changing volume. This work is not very suitable for audio as it is not action packed nor is there much dialogue. The abridgment is also short and not engrossing. Though billed as a "classic Western," this presentation will only appeal to real Western aficionados.
