Summary

Medicine Bow, Wyoming. The Western frontier was a lawless land ruled by the gun. Riding the rugged rangeland is a southerner with peace in his heart, a soft-spoken and fair man, but a man with a fast draw, a straight shot, and a need for justice. And then into his heart rode the beautiful young lady from the east. The St. Charles Players present a unique telling of this classic tale, in a new multi-cast dramatization performed in exciting Radio Theatre style.

Mostly ok, Some poor narration.

Dramatized scenes are okay. However, some of the narration is just plain bad. Seriously, the guy stumbles through his sentences like a primary-school child reading to his class, did they not think to record multiple takes?! Anyway, at least they aren't too frequent..

Great!

Well performed. I could understand it easily though I am French. The adaptation doesn't defer much from the original text. The music is intertaining and the noises are realistic. The story in itself is interresting. I recommend it. Especially if you have to read it for school.

Disappointing

If you've read the book this audio presentation will be a tremendous let down.

The full book is excellent. I suggest dumping this audio and finding an unabridged audio. Unfortunately it is not available on audible at this time.
