School book stuff

Was OK but bit like a high school text book. No depth. Very child like.

quite the collection

since I'd already listened to a couple of these separately, I was able to skip em. I really enjoyed the ones about Annie Oakley n Jesse James. Seth Bullock was pretty interesting, too. Geronimo's tale surprised me, as I didn't know much about him. I felt Billy the Kid was, of course, interesting, but shorter than I would have liked. I also wish they could have included more on Hickok, in his own story.

Jason Zenobia rocked, of course

Lots of stories

This is a compilation audiobook of several different smaller ones. Some are better than the others. I particularly enjoyed the one about Seth Bullock as I had never heard of him before. The last one was about Geronimo (Goyaałé) which was really interesting and I learned some new details there too.

I really enjoy Jason Zenobia’s narration as always and having the same narrator across all these different books was enjoyable.
