Traveling to visit her uncle Nate at his Rancho del Encanto, Hope Farman, who gets thrown from her seat into the path of a stampeding herd, escapes with her life when she is rescued by Channing, a somewhat mysterious man who was born on the desert and has lived there ever since.
Written in 1924, Robert J. Horton's bracing Man of the Desert is an old-fashioned Western adventure that finds young Hope Farman, visiting from the East, at the mercy of a band of vicious outlaws hell-bent on acquiring her uncle's farm by whatever means necessary. Only Channing, the enigmatic desert dweller, is audacious enough risk his life to save her from these brazen thieves.
Joe Geoffery's warm, inviting delivery imbues this listen with a richness and dignity, and recalls the calm, reassuring inflection of Wilford Brimley.
