But trouble has come to the canyon. When Jimmy and his boys chase off a band of outlaws menacing a beautiful woman named Revelie Sanborn, a series of violent events erupts that tests Jimmy's rule.This critically acclaimed novel features a rollicking reading from narrator Henry Strozier who employs a full range of unique voices for the characters.

This is a life story that is a bit overstated. Not quite Paul Bunyun like but still a bit unbelievable. I like westerns and this one did hold my interest. Not for the faint of heart as there is a lot of gore, but if that does not bother you it should be worth a download.
