Would you try another book from Mel Adkins and/or John Stamper?
Would you ever listen to anything by Mel Adkins again?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Stamper?
What character would you cut from The Long Dusty Trail: The Beginning, Book 1?
The miner and his granddaughter.
Any additional comments?
Mel Adkins writes the novel as if it's an introduction the the western genre, which is unfortunate because it's sure to drive away anyone looking to start reading westerns, as well as souring the experience for a seasoned western reader. The story line is all over the place, where just about every cliche western scenario is rehashed with no originality or contribution to the story. Limited detail on too many adventures that don't add to the main plot. Poor narrating skills, very monotone, the juvenile writing style leads to a harsh presentation of dialogue. Horrible editing with many repeated words or phrases.
