Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
YES! Definitely will and have recommended The Nations. The tale is authentic, based on historical facts and is a well blended fictional account. Ken Farmer is a master story teller with years of experience in film and VO work. His talent shines in the audio presentation.
What other book might you compare The Nations to and why?
I can not think of any other books other than the rest of the western series written by Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke.
What does Ken Farmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
A deeper sense of being there. In the story. Riding with the outlaws and the good guys as they move through the story.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Don't mess with Bass Reeves. It will get ya dead by hot lead or a hanging rope.
Any additional comments?
I'm officially a huge fan of Ken Farmer's audio work. It's a pleasure to hear him spin the yarn.

If you're looking for an old school Western story with really good guys and very bad guys, this is one for you. The narration, provided by one of the book's authors, is perfectly tailored to the tale. I cannot say exactly how much of it is historically accurate, but many of the main characters are real enough, including Bass Reeves. I came to this book specifically looking for a Bass Reeves story and that is what I got ... mostly. But I don't usually read a lot of westerns, not like I used to anyway, and I found myself struggling through at times. I suspect that is more about me than it is about the book. If you like a straight ahead Western told in a straight ahead fashion, you'll probably enjoy this more than I did. Certainly worth a credit either way.
