It's the late 19th century, and you're a young English aristocrat lost in the American Southwest. A lynch mob is after you for horse theft. Irritable natives are on your trail. And the woman with you is not the type you'd bring home to your mother. Would you survive long enough to find safety? Or would you curl into a fetal position and cry?
This is where Clarence Oliver Edwards finds himself in Westward, Tally Ho! Bored with his privileged life in England and weary of the relatives who share his family estate, Clarence follows his recently dismissed butler, Guthrie, on a non-stop adventure from the busy streets of Boston to the dusty trails of Santa Fe. What begins as Guthrie's search for his long-lost daughter becomes a shocking introduction to the American West for Clarence. His idea of proper etiquette is stretched to the limit as he's bombarded with characters of all types: tough gunslingers, seductive saloon girls, crafty frontier traders, an eccentric Zuni Indian chief, and a wild hermit.
Through it all, Clarence realizes the value of loyalty and the cost of redemption. But most importantly, he discovers a degree of inner strength he never knew he possessed. Will Guthrie find his daughter? Will Clarence survive unscathed? Take a wild ride through the Old West and find out!

Poor narrative set-up
Story line good, did Not like how the Native American were represented. The worst part was the narrator would simply Stop at the end of each chapter and then there was dead silence. I would check to see if device was not working, then finally the narrator came back stating Chapter ___ and go on. This was very disruptive to listening to the story. The storyline was basically good and the story silly but sort of fun.

I got this book via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This book was interesting and satirical. Just when I thought I was getting into a good story the satire came out. I loved that the main characters were of different stations in life but of similar dispositions. Even though the butler was not the main character he took the show for me. I loved that he not only found his daughter but his daughter and the real main character fell in love. Some of the scenes were very disturbing but I loved the last train ride and the way they were able to catch the train. That was a good scene and helped keep the 3-star rating I gave the book. Some of the scenes were too far-fetched for me. The narrator fit the story but left me hanging at times. When the scene of the main character and the lady riding into the desert and then falling off of the horse was described I was wide-eyed.with something, disbelief, what you actually wrote that or something.
