Most of these stories pre-date the novel Holmes on the Range. The last several occur after "On the Wrong Track", and one after "The Black Dove". These last stories should be read after those novels because there are spoilers in the stories.
The the spirit of the AC Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories, the focus is on the deduction. The stories get to the deducifying quickly, so that's delightful.
The narrator is not the same one as the one that reads the novels, but he uses a similar style, and is very enjoyable to listen to.
The audiobook also leads off with an introduction from Steve Hockensmith. He explains why he started writing Big and Old Red. That's interesting too.
This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to.

Steve H- has once again delivered some fine tales about our favorite red-headed cowpuncher detectives, and cleverly interwoven the stories between the action found in the previously published novels.
The narrator did a reasonably good job, but he just wasn't William Dufris.

I decided to download this because the premise of cowboys emulating Sherlock Holmes just appealed to me. The stories are told with a gentle humour and the lead characters are quite endearing. The deducifying nicely put together.
I gave this full marks on all fronts.
The only negative - I can't find any more of these stories on Audible just yet.
