Riders of the Purple Sage was one of the earliest works of Western fiction, and it played a significant role in popularizing Westerns. The novel tells the story of Jane Withersteen and her battle to overcome her persecution by members of her Mormon church. She does this with the help of her non-Mormon cowboy friends Bern Venters and Lassiter.More
An early classic of the American Western genre, Riders of the Purple Sage continues to be a best seller today. Our heroine is Jan Withersteen, who lives in a small, peaceful Mormon community in Cottonwood, Utah. Trouble with cowboys, however, disturbs this peace, and this is where the adventures begin. Jim Roberts narrates the audiobook's vivid prose. His staid bass voice provides a balance to the story's extreme excitement.

A great classic
Lots of other books by the same author
Did a very good job. Enough differentiation of the voices to know who is talking without going in to "cartoon voice" land. Narrator does not sound like a Westerner but that was find with me. I find genuine Western "twangs" very distracting after a while.
Big gunfight at the end.
I listened to samples of all the many versions and liked this the best. Made the right choice. Good listening experience
