Texans on the Powder

by | Read by Gene Engene

Western • 6 hrs 30 min • Unabridged • ©

The familiar story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana during the glory days of the American West is presented in a crisp and professional recording though not wholly successfully. As a narrator, Engene's dry, clipped style is appropriate for the Western genre, and he moves along at a good pace. However, he compensates for somewhat thin writing with thick dialects. The results often get in the way of the story. Despite Engene's attempt to use every possible note of his vocal range, one cowboy twang blends into another. Because characters are externally drawn rather than internally felt, he is unable to maintain dialect consistency in the heat of conversation. For die-hard Western fans only.
