Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Will Patton

Western • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

This book is more like LONESOME DOVE than its prequel or its sequel, but much shorter. We see classic post-bellum McMurtry characters struggling with bucolic conflicts and imparting their colloquial wisdoms. Will Patton lays the rural accent on so thick you can feel yourself being dragged away to the Appalachians. Each character has a different voice and accent, making a zany performance of a zany story. Grandpa talks louder than anyone else, so we are sure he is a bit deaf. The match between the story and the reader provides good fun. J.A.H.
