Publisher's Summary

Ravaged by time and abandoned by the people who once flocked there in search of golden nuggets, Ragged-Ass Gulch is a ghost town.

Character study

Story reads like a writing assignment. I would give it a C. Tries to be a character study but lacks the character development and too contrived and predictable to be entertaining. Guessed the "plot twist" way before the end. Sorry--read like something I might write.

Good Listening

Unlike many of the other reviewers I found this a light entertaining story. It helped pass away the hours I spent on the highway listening to it pleasantly. Perhaps it is the fact that it was free but I would recommend this for easy listening, non-demanding, entertainment and well worth twice what I paid for it. Thanks Audible. More free stories like this would be appreciated.
