Green as grass, Rube was a long way from bein' any kind of pistoleer or shootist, but when Marshal Marion Daniels come on him an' Arliss, an' needed help with the Duncan bunch for what they'd done, that tussle growed Rube up right quick. He stopped driftin', found friends worth lookin' up to, an' a young woman that was right admirable. Then a town in trouble put him behind a badge of his own, an' Rube done things he never thought he'd have to do. Life got tough. For the sake a Marion, Arliss, an' Miss Harmony, it come time for him to root hog or die, on the Deer Run Trail.

Turned me into a grinnin' fool!
Forget all the previous reviews I wrote where I said a book was good for some laughs. This audiobook is truly FUNNY and could be a new found cure for depression or for a listening slump. You just have to be willing to jump genres and get outside of the box.
It is a cowboy story! Certainly not my first choice for a great listen. However, I really loved Lonesome Dove and this book had great ratings, too. I had never heard of this author before and he reads his own book. Arg--what a leap of faith!
And believe me, it paid off. Everything about Deer Run Trail is perfect. It's a must read audiobook. David R. Lewis is a very talented fellow. He nailed the cowboy dialogue like you can't imagine, and he reads his own book like no one else could. I was smiling and chuckling (out loud) through the entirety of the story and loving every minute of it.
You can't not get drawn in by young Reuben Beeler as he travels along the Missouri River seeking his fortune, or better yet, coming of age and finding his calling in law enforcement. And enforce he does! No political correctness here, no catering to the bad guys. It's the way we used to do it and it felt good, really good to hear Reuben and his mentors take care of business. And yet, what a sweetheart Reuben is! This book has a lot going on and it isn't all shoot-em-ups.
I can imagine listening to all the books in this series. And soon. Highly recommended for pure enjoyment and a fun listen!

David R. Lewis will keep your interest. This is well written, and since the author is doing the reading, the tale flows smooth as silk. The characters voices are clearly separate and firmly recognizable. The musical interludes between chapters is another plus, as it allows the imagination a few seconds to consider the storyline. David R. Lewis Is marking a clear trail and I will surely follow.
