Publisher's Summary

A plain-spoken, appealing narrator relates the history of her parents - a Nevada silver baron who forced the Crow people to give up one of their most beautiful daughters, Gun That Sings, in marriage to him. With her mother's death in childbirth, so begins a heroine's tale equal parts heartbreak and strength. This girl has been born into a world with no place for a half-native, half-white child. After being hidden for years, a very wicked stepmother finally gifts her with the name Snow White, referring to the pale skin she will never have. Filled with fascinating glimpses through the fabled looking glass and a close-up look at hard living in the gritty gun-slinging West, listeners will be enchanted by this story at once familiar and entirely new.

Short but Great Listen

Six-gun Snow White is a retelling and reinterpretation of the fairy tale Snow White set in the American West. This is a Western interpretation with some magical flair. Really enjoyed this short read and was happy I found it on Audible. Julia Whelan does a great job with the narration.

This is a book I had been trying to get ahold of and read for about a year before I got audible and found it here. The only other book I've read from Valente is Deathless which is another great retelling of a fairy tale, this time a Russian one. If you enjoy retellings of fairy tales, especially ones with a dark twist then I can definitely recommend both Six-Gun Snow White and Deathless as some great choices.

Great Listen!

I absolutely love this author and thought this was a clever and fun twist on an old story. I hesitated to buy a three hour book but it was definitely worth it!!!
