Of the many Audible Westerns I've listened to this is one of the good ones.
The Author knows his stuff. Horses, guns, geography and makes the main characters very sympathetic. I E lovable. Good stuff. To short.
A few years ago, I would have nixed reading westerns -- even modern westerns. Just not for me I thought. Then along came Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire books read by George Guidall and I was forever converted. Now I have slipped down that perilous slope into other westerns and have to say that they offer a wonderful respite from the diet of murder and mayhem I have been listening to via a plethora of suspense and thriller books. This Ralph Compton novel is just so very enjoyable -- there is ample action, wonderful descriptive writing, lots of dilemmas to be solved, some violence, some romance, and woven within are examinations of human ethics and decency. In this book, "Ed" has a troubled past and seeks his comfort in whiskey. It takes a strong, determined widow woman who needs to get her cattle to market to shake him from his stupor; help him meet and conquer his demons and create a life. Just a good listen in every way!
