Publisher's Summary

Young Bradon McTavish watches the bluecoats brutally hang his father and destroy everything he's known, and he escapes their wrath into the gun smoke and blood of war. Captured and paroled, only if he'll head west of the war, he rides the river into the wilds of the new territory of Montana where savages and grizzlies await. He discovers new friends and old enemies, and a woman formerly forbidden to him.

Good Western

This was a historically correct book basically. I have issues with some of the things told but the author can only write from his perspective. he never will ever know what it is like to be of a different race or even a mixed race. But the things that were told and the journey that was shown was one that makes all western stories come alive to me. I would not say it was as accurately correct as a Louis Lamore book but it came close. The narrator was well chosen for this type of book and did a good job. I will search out more books that he has narrated and also find more books by this author. I got this book via audiobook boom.

Enjoyable listen

Would you consider the audio edition of West of the War to be better than the print version?

I enjoy reading a good story better than listening but with my limited time for reading ,listening while driving is very enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of West of the War?

The Historical accuracy about the civil war prison camp impressed me.Did enjoy the Union redheaded Lt getting shot with buckshot.

Which character – as performed by Bob Rundell – was your favorite?

Young MacTavish

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the Union hanged his father was a moving and touching moment.When the author described the condition of the hanging body of his father was moving.

Any additional comments?

I did not like the authors choice of racial mixing the characters.I think this was thrown in much like the way commercials display racial mixed couples in almost every commercial shown on television today. That seems to be the popular agenda today but Historically that would not have happened as portrayed.That would be the only negative for me that I found with the story.
