Editor reviews

George Guidall's professionalism and talent are evident in every minute of this classic Western. Gray's epic tale of building the first transcontinental railroad is peopled with finely drawn characters like hero Warren Neale; his partner, Larry Red King; and his girlfriend, Allie Lee - plus numerous miners, railroad workers, and Indians. Guidall's charming soft accents and unique vocal characterizations add to the tension and drama of the struggles these strong characters face. He maintains consistency for characters of various ages, genders, and backgrounds. During narrative passages, Guidall's command of audiobook performance is especially noteworthy.

Well told

Interesting story, told in a way that made me want to keep picking it up, no matter how often I was interrupted, the more interruptions, the more anticipation to get back to the characters, the story.
Really interested in well-being of characters.

Not my cup of tea.

Story seemed too long and too much angst, I could not stay with it and skipped to the end.

The UP Trail
