Wayne D. Overholser recalls the last days of gunman and outlaw "Gunplay" Maxwell. Like a campfire folk tune his tale plays out sadly, his once-great prowess stripped to bumbling and drunkenness. Overholser uses the metaphor of a mangy old coyote driving home the uselessness of the last days of a man who reportedly was friends with Butch Cassidy and pulled off some impressive and daring robberies in his time. Terence Aselford performs with sly deftness, one can picture him winking as he relates the story of this Western legend in this quick and fun audiobook.
Finding out what really happened to Gunplay Maxwell is not easy. He was a bank and train robber known for the skill with which he pulled off every job. Yet, when one of those explosions in a baggage car left him hard of hearing and nearly blind in one eye, there seems to be no future for him. He was reduced to raiding back-yard chicken coops to stay alive. But his last ride would make him a rich man and alive to tell about it.
