I have read Ralph Compton’s (1934-1998) western books off and over the years and have enjoyed them. Ralph Compton was an award winning western author. I could tell right away the style of writing in this book was not quite like that of Compton’s. I discovered that the Compton estate hired Jory Sherman to write two books in the Compton trail series. Jory Sherman (1932-2014) was also an award winning western author and a contemporary of Compton’s. This is one of the two books Sherman wrote under Ralph Compton’s name.
Dane Kramer almost has his Oklahoma cattle ranch paid off. A buyer in Omaha will buy his current herd of cattle and this will provide funds for the last bank payment. The banker Earl Throckmorton wants the ranch for himself and sets plans into action to stop the herd from reaching Omaha.
The book is well written and the pace is fairly fast. The story contains lots of good old fashion action on the cattle drive. We get to know the drovers and the country they are crossing on their way to Nebraska from Oklahoma. I find reading a western is a great way to relax and get away from it all by stepping back into the rough and tumble west of yore.
Corey M. Snow does a great job narrating the story. Snow is from Olympia, Washington and is a full time audiobook narrator; he works for a number of top audiobook publishing companies. Not many of the narrators work full time narrating audio books; most are stage actors who narrator between acting jobs. I am going to keep my eye out for more books that he has narrated. I usually follow the author but I do have a few narrators that I follow and that has opened up a wider variety of books to choose from.
