"Southwestern Arizona more than a hundred years ago, "the gallows land," was a place where a man could die just as sure as if he had a rope around his neck. Into the sun-baked desert wanders Roy Boone, headed west, anywhere west. His beloved young wife has died of exhaustion, and a big part of Roy died with her. Weary and thirsty, he happens upon an out-of-the-way ranch, where he meets Jennifer, the victim of an abusive husband. Then two mysterious men try to kill him. There's a bank robbery. A posse. And a dusty stage ride to Yuma in hopes of escape. Richard Ferrone's voice is as gritty as the desert sand. His sharp, crisp delivery energizes the action as Roy and Jennifer flee the villains and grapple with the need to do right. T.J.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
