When Wes Montana's Arapaho mother is murdered‚ the hired gun discovers his white father, Ray Eastman‚ who had abandoned them before Wes was born‚ is still alive‚ wealthy with family‚ and may have ordered her death. Swearing vengeance on his own father‚ Wes yet finds himself on his father's side in the middle of a range war fueled by Eastman's unfaithful wife. Wes likes his half brother but is afraid of Rosalie‚ a beautiful Irish orphan‚ even as the war explodes in a fight to survive against all odds before the truth is known.

A Son's Revenge


What did you like best about this story?

The complete story. I saw the movie with Wes Brown as Wes Rowlands, bounty hunter; in this audiobook his name is Wes Montana, a gun for hire. Wes Montana is a half-breed whose Indian mother is murdered. Because of his mixed blood and prejudices Montana became the fastest gun in the west in self defense. When his mother is murdered he swears vengeance upon her killers. This story is about Montana's journey in his quest for justice - revenge.


Have you listened to any of Gene Engene’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He performed well in all the books I've listened to with him as narrator. I like his narrations, but I did not like the voice he gave Wes Montana.


Who was the most memorable character of Shadow on the Mesa and why?

Wes Montana. It's his story. His life as a half-breed and as a fast gun. His quest to extract vengeance on his mother's murderers, even if it is his father.
