"Tom Stechschulte reads this rompin', stompin' tale in a good-old-boy style and accent, dramatizing the comic and tragic adventures of Zeke Proctor and Ned Christie at the end of the nineteenth century. These Cherokee desperadoes and their wives, Becca and Jewel, are involved in a series of moral and legal conflicts during the Cherokee Nation's struggle for independence. Stechschulte brings the politicians, judges, marshals, bootleggers, and whites of Oklahoma and Arkansas to life, using varying accents, pacing, and speech patterns. He booms at times but is subtle and soft-spoken when necessary and never stumbles over Cherokee words. His interpretation conveys empathy and affection for Zeke and Ned. S.C.A.
