Josey Wales was the most wanted man in Texas. His wife and child had been lost to pre-civil War destruction and, like Jesse James and other young farmers, he joined the guerrilla soldiers of Missouri-men with no cause but survival and no purpose but revenge.

Well read, captivating, complete, and stimulating. reading the book was great, but hearing it was better.
"Love this book. Love this character."
I would and I will. Strong character with a very emotional connection.
Just a great western with a deep, deep emotion under it all. You will root for this bad guy from start to finish.
Chet did great and he can even sing....a little bit.... Great work.
Listen to while driving and I hated getting to work and I looked forward to the drive.
Thank God there is a sequel. I want more, more more.
If you're looking for historically correct story that is just plain a great read this is it.
"Gone to Texas and Beyond"
I've read the book years ago, but listening to it (while driving across the deserts of Utah and Nevada) let me enjoy this familiar tale in a new light. It's a great story made even better by Chet Williamson's reading. I look forward to listening to the sequel.
Voice is toned to simulate the various characters. The female voice acting was silly sounding. Ambient sound effects and music would really make it.
