Publisher's Summary

Val Darrant was just four years old the snowy night his mother abandoned him. But instead of meeting a lonely death, he met Will Reilly - a gentleman, a gambler, and a worldly, self-taught scholar. For 10 years they each were all the family the other had, traveling from dusty American boomtowns to the cities of Europe - until the day Reilly’s luck ran out in a roar of gunfire.
But it wasn’t a gambling brawl or a pack of thieves that sealed Will’s fate. It was a far more complex story that Val would soon uncover, one that touched upon Val’s nearly forgotten childhood, the woman who was Will Reilly’s lost love, and the violent future of a growing country.

Another Great Read By Louis L'Amour

This is a touching story about a man alone who raises a boy nobody wants, and taught him to be a man. An honest gambler, he and the boy travel in many countries, but it's the west they love.

The narrator gave a good performance.

A must read for L'Amour fans, or great as a first read for those unfamiliar with his stories.
