Professional reviews

"George Guidall excels in his presentation of Kelton's Wild West adventure, set in 1889 Texas. Guidall shines in his portrayal of young hicks and cowboy wannabes. His acting skills are in perfect harmony with the standard plotlines of romance, cattle-rustling and herding, old-time sheriffs, and the hard struggle of pioneer women. Hewey Calloway is a fun-loving cowboy who can't shoot straight. His younger brother, Walter, is a serious cowboy who, much to Hewey's horror, wants to marry a pretty waitress, Eve, and become a farmer. Guidall is an extraordinarily gifted narrator with a delivery style that compels attention and is fun to listen to. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
