"Always Good Listening!"
I am a huge fan of Louis L'amour, I have read every book he has written. So it is nice to get to have the books read to me for a change. I also like the fact that these books don't have a lot of swearing and sex, I can listen to this book and not worry about my kids. I reall liked the narrator.
"Simple but kept me thinking"
Louis Lamour writes it where you feel like you could be the main character I can almost hear the leather creek in in the saddle and taste the dust from the trail.
"Well worth buying"
A good western for all ages and very well narrated. I would recommend this audio book.
"Good but predictable"
Narrator is great. Louis L'amour is predictable but comfortable. Always count on him to spin a good tale but repeat himself a little too much.
"And another one"
Great story, awesome characters with a great plot, classic lamour. love this guy, so many great stories.
