Description

A wrangler for some 40 years, Willard Wyman landed two Spur Awards for High Country as Best Novel of the West and Best First Novel. Little more than a boy, Ty Hardin is apprenticed to a legendary packer even as the Great Depression takes its toll on American families. "The characters are so well drawn, and the authenticity of detail so finely wrought, you'd think they come from life. And you'd be right."-True West

Professional reviews

"Ken Marks reads this Western, which takes place during the Great Depression, with a measured, elegant style that perfectly suits the work. Memorable characters like Fenton Pardee, Ty Hardin, Cody Jo, as well as the setting of the Montana mountains, are lovingly described by Wyman and carefully rendered in Marks's resonant tones. Marks pours emotion and drama into the challenging situations that evolve as cowboys take greenhorns into the mountains, where they encounter bears, wild cats, and snowstorms. This rich story is sensitively interpreted by Marks. His performance is pure pleasure. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
