Al Dano performs "Paradise Al", "Paradise Al’s Confession", and "The Quest" with a relaxed, sitting-’round-the-campfire style. The first two center on a drifter, who stopped riding the rails just long enough to get caught in the middle of a feud between two clans. The third story also involves an outsider - Barney Dwyer, longer on strength than smarts - with no idea of the journey he agreed to in trying to unite a father and son. Together, the stories serve as a fan’s validation or the uninitiated’s introduction to the works of a pulp master (Frederick Schiller Faust, when not writing under a pseudonym).
Despite his thievery, Bob is able to elude law enforcement, but Chambers is convinced that there is one trap that will catch Nelson and that trap is the often-married but currently single Maybelle Crofter. Men seem unable to resist her when she casts her spell, and Chambers wants her to work her charm on Bob Nelson. He expected Bob Nelson to fall for the bait, but what he didn't think possible is what happens: Maybelle finds herself actually in love with the bandit. In "Rifle Pass," aging Sheriff Thomas Weller has one major problem: his son Dick Weller. Dick cannot seem to apply himself at anything. In a desperate attempt to have Dick's courage tested, the sheriff deputizes his son and charges him with the capture of the outlaw Harry Sanford. Initially it seems to be the right solution to the dilemma. Dick sets out to capture Sandord, and he does, but then to everyone's surprise and the sheriff's chagrin, he not only lets Sanford go free, but even joins him on the outlaw trail.

The quest is not what it seems
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The audible description could have been slightly accurate.
What other book might you compare The Quest to and why?
All other Max Brand books
Which scene was your favorite?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yes, it is a good Max Brand. Just wish I had not already read/listened to it.
Any additional comments?
The three stories in the description are NOT in this book. I was very disappointed. The three stories are in fact:
Paradise Al’s Confession
The Quest which is also included in another audible book called Trouble in Timberline.
