Great Stories

Some of these stories may have been told before but The Old West Collection offers details that make them come alive. The stories are told through different narrators, as well as from readers of actual diaries and letters of the period.

The only problem is the very intrusive music which never goes away, and is played as loud as the narration. Apparently the term "background music" was lost on these producers. If only this book could be recorded again, without the music, then it would be perfect.

Excellent Audiobook!

This was a great depiction of the old west! The music and sound effects were a wonderful enhancement to the powerful storytellers and characters from the past. This audio adventure put me right in the center of the activity. All 8 hours were completely enjoyable! I highly recommend this audiobook for all age levels. Brilliant!
