Audible Editor Reviews

The Red Well is a good old-fashioned Western in the most traditional sense of the term, written by one of the genre's great masters, the notorious Max Brand, whose prolific literary production through the first half of the 20th century helped to shape this beloved style of American storytelling.
Steve Menasche's performance of the three stories that make up this collection is almost over-the-top at times, but then, the genre itself is defined in part by larger-than-life action, and Menasche's thick, drawling character voices work well in these stories of newsmen and ranch hands, treachery and gunfights, good guys and villains. Settle in for some shoot'em up action - you won't be disappointed!
