It has been sometime since I read a western so thought it might make a nice change of pace. The story starts off in the late 1800 with a familiar western theme; three young brothers, Frank, Bob, and Jesse have just buried their parents. They face starvation and are desperate, so off they go to find work so they can eat.

Rhodes tells the story of each of the brothers in his usual interesting style. The story tells of how they learned skills and developed into hard working honest men. Rhodes is a great story teller and he can keep my attention throughout the book.

I think the narrator Gene Engene has the perfect voice for narrating a western.
