Publisher's Summary

Rafe Caradec—gambler, wanderer, soldier of fortune—was as hard a man as the battlefields and waterfronts of Latin America could fashion, but he was as good as his word. As Charles Rodney lay dying in a dank ship’s fo’c’sle, Rafe swore to make sure that Rodney’s Wyoming ranch went to his daughter, Ann. In Painted Rock, Wyoming, Caradec found land for a man to love, miles of rolling grasslands and towering mountains. He also found that one of the most ruthless men in the territory had set his sights on both Rodney’s ranch and his daughter. But Rafe Caradec had given his word, and once he’d looked deep into Ann Rodney’s eyes, nothing short of death would stop him from keeping the promise he’d made.

My favorite wester audible book!

This was a well developed story with all the hell and brimstone we expect, but the story was well developed and terms correct with the period.

Another Louis L’Amour Western

Another Louis l’Amour western. Unlike some of the other westerns that I’ve read up to this point in chronological order this is the first western that truly dealt with a loner where there was not a romantic interest with the hero and some damsel in distress. Although there was a damsel in distress who Rafe Caradec was trying to protect for an old shipmate buddy, he did not show much interest romantically. Unlike other books up to this point chronologically, There was not a showdown between the hero in his arch enemy, at least not with guns. The final battle this book they took their guns off laid them on a bar table in commenced with hand to hand combat and as usual in Louis l’Amour books new hero won. The showdown with guns was prior to the fist combat but not between the hero and the arch enemy but subordinate subordinate to the hero in a subordinate to the arch enemy. The unique thing about this book was that the hero started out in California ownership that he was trying to escape instead of riding into town on a horse. The hero traveled from the California port town two Atown in Wyoming and Joyce began the real story. This was one of the better Louis l’Amour books that I’ve read up to this point with a stark contrast to the cookie-cutter books that he had done previously. Louis L’amour is not necessarily a must read, his books aren’t also the typical classics but more along the lines of spaghetti westerns as in seen in the 1950s and 1960s movies. If you love westerns then you’ll love Louis l’Amour. If you don’t then you won’t. Determine what you like before Reading Louis l’Amour but if you like good westerns then you will like Louis l’Amour.

Well written

This is a very good western cowboy story with all the shoot em up and fist fights that come with a good western, and don't forget about all the cattle and horses too.

This is one of Louis L'Armour better w esterns in me own opinion, I'm a fan of Mr L'Armour's work and will continue to read and listen to his westerns.

Louis Lamour Was the Best Western Story Teller!

This was another great story. The narrator did an excellent job keeping playing Rafe Caradec and all off the different characters while keeping the listener entertained. The story was full of action and an array of salty gunfighters that made the story exciting all the way to the end. ,I would highly recommend this audio.
