This is a vivid, rollicking tale of the old West in California. I enjoyed it thoroughly as an action adventure and a great Western tale.The prose was colorful and the narration suited the story.
I loved this swashbuckler of a tale... but not when read by this narrator. His voice and reading style are positively charming (it reminds me of Cary Elwes (Wesley in The Princess Bride movie)), but his mispronunciation of Spanish place names grated on my nerves. I tried to overlook it, because I really DID like the narrator's voice and reading style, but the Spanish place names are used so much in the story that by the end of chapter 2 I couldn't take hearing them mangled any more and bought a different edition with different narrator.
