They tried to tell him that his father had killed himself, but Kearney McRaven knew better. No matter what life had dealt him, his father would go down fighting. And as he delved deeper into the mystery, he learned that just before his father died, the elder McRaven had experienced a remarkable run of luck: he'd won nearly ten thousand dollars and the deed to a cattle ranch.
Not yet eighteen, Kearney was determined enough to track down his father's murderer and claim what was rightfully his. Now, followed every step of the way by a shadowy figure, Kearney must solve the mystery of his father's hidden past - a past that concealed a cold-blooded killer who would stop at nothing to keep a chilling secret.

"The entire family liked it"
Great book for driving through Colorado on a family road trip. I would highly recommend.
"Not L'Amour's Best"
I'm a real Louis L'Amour fan, but felt "The proving Trail" was not up to his usual excellence.
Perhaps with another narrator it would have been better.
Michael Crouch is one of the best narrators of Louis Lamour fiction in my humble opinion. The story is a typical Louis Lamour western fiction but I'm yet to read a Louis Lamour fiction that I haven't fully enjoyed. If you're a fan of Louis Lamour this narration will not dissapoint.
"One of LL's best!"
I love stories of boys becoming men of character under duress and this is a good one for that. Loved every minute!
"Unique story line."
Very good story! Surprising twists and tuns. You are missing out if you havn'r read this one.
loved it. made me want more and looked forward to listening to it. great book.
"Not one the best"
It was a good story but definitely not one of the best, I felt there were some plot holes regarding some of the characters that were mentioned a lot but never had any character development. This author is my favorite and he has many other much better stories.
"a boy becomes a man and beats all odds"
a young man faces every woe, family are strangers and much is on the line. His life ends and begins, great story for those who know the Colorado west.
"Typical Louis Lamour novel. Excellent"
My only problem was that Michael Crouch is a little too soft spoken, almost a whisper sometimes, although his performance was very good. I listen mostly in the car and need to rewind or adjust volume while driving sometimes.
Otherwise, it's a good listen.
