"Logan Sackett's a man to ride any trail with--he's a shrewd, seasoned frontiersman with lots of common sense. Terrence Mann's smoothly read narration displays a talent for creating the many voices of this tale--particularly that of elderly Emily Talon (a kinswoman Sackett aids) and her elegant son. Mann especially shines as the voice of Logan Sackett himself. Donning a Western drawl and droppin' his "g's" where required, Mann's Logan exudes the essence of Sackett: a good man, a man of few words, a man who will fight when the chips are down. L'Amour fans will be pleased by Mann's spinning of this tale and the depth of his insights about the characters who inhabit it. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
