Publisher's Summary

When the Civil War ends, where can a former Confederate soldier go to escape the long memories of neighbors who supported the winning side? Where can Johnny Reb go when he can't go home? He can go out west, where the land is hard, where there is danger on every side, and where no one cares for whom you fought - only how well you can do it. Walt Ames, a former cavalryman with the First Virginia, is headed west with little more than a rifle, a revolver, and a pocket full of looted Yankee gold. But in his way stand bushwhackers, bluecoats, con men, and the ever-restless Indians. And perhaps most dangerous of all, even more dangerous than the cruel and unforgiving land, is the temptation of the woman whose face he can't forget. When you can't go home again - go west!

Fast Moving Interesting Entertainment!

A unique western, capturing the very essence of post-civil war life of a confederate soldier.
Although the war was over Walt Ames, a former cavalryman and scout with the First Virginia, finds hatred for Johnny Rebs still runs deep. Going home he learns he has no home; his older brother was killed in the war and he was declared dead with his inheritance going to his sister whose fiance had fought for the North. To forget the war, Walter decides to go west and start a new life.

Brings the Lightening is the fast paced story of Walter Ames' life after war. His adventures as he moves west. The twists and turns his life takes.

It's very interesting entertainment; never a dull moment and the 7+ hours sped by. Bob Allen gave a good performance although it took awhile to get used to his voice inflections. He gave his characters life, fitting each one with a voice to match their character.

It's good clean entertainment for the entire family.

fantastic original western adventure!

It's great to have such a refreshing take on the cowboy genre. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series!
Well read, well written, and enjoyable to listen to. If you're a fan of the genre, or want to try something a little different, then give it a go. You'll be glad that you did.
