Summary

The Price of Gold  

A wagon train winding through the remote reaches of the Rocky Mountain high country can attract plenty of scavengers - some of them human - like Vic Bedell and his gang of cutthroats. All he wants is the women, who can be traded for gold mine supplies...or used for whatever else he has in mind. But he didn't count on Preacher leading that train.  

The Color of Blood  

Bedell's first mistake is leaving the First Mountain Man for dead. His second mistake is underestimating Preacher's strength...and cunning. And Preacher needs all he can get to lead 150 helpless ladies out of captivity...through 1500 miles of unforgiving territory filled with hostile Indians - and the deadliest threat of all: Bedell and his wild avengers....

I really enjoyed this, my second of the Preacher series. I enjoy following along the routes using google maps. Having been near or around some of the locations makes these books even more interesting. I will be selecting another audiobook in the series, and one narrated by J. Rodney Turner.
The Preacher is that rarest of men, which can only be forged by such circumstances as those few who blazed trails of the western frontier.

My husband is loving this series! It has added hours of enjoyment to his day. He is disabled and blind so it's been a life saver for him.

Another great story from a master

Accuracy of information regarding weapons, living conditions and geography continue to be exremely good in this story. Plot develops quickly and characters are very believable

Reader is perfect for the part.

Narration not very good

Narrator is monotone, characters are difficult at times to distinguish, storyline made up the difference
