Publisher's Summary

Clay Bell spent the last six years fighting Indians, rustlers, and the wilderness itself to make the B-Bar ranch the prize of the Deep Creek Range. But Jud Devitt, a ruthless speculator from the East, now threatens everything Clay has worked for. Devitt, holding a contract with the Mexican Central to deliver railroad ties, wants to harvest timber off the land where Clay grazes his cattle. Backing Devitt are shady politicians, a dishonest banker, and fifty of the toughest lumberjacks in the county. But as Colleen Riley, Devitt’s fiancée, realizes the brutal game he’s playing, her disapproval of his actions, and Clay Bell’s obvious integrity and charm, pull her toward a destiny that will tip the scales in their bloody battle over timber and cattle.

Great!

I really liked the story and narrator.

Jason Culp really needs to do more Louis L'Amour books.

Enjoyable, typical L'Amour

This was a typical L'Amour western, but definitely a good one! I prefer different voice actors, but the reader did a great job of differentiating each character.

Good Western Story

This was definitely one of the smoother reads of L’Amour. Clay Bell is the rancher with a herd of cattle who has staked out a claim to some good timberland. Jud Devitt is the railroad tycoon that has been informed about some valuable timber on Bells land. Washington, lawyers, government agents, fist fights and guns make for a battle of cattlemen versus loggers. The book was really good, but did have a slight anti-climatic ended.

TOO MANY CHARACTERS

The book contains too many characters and becomes confusing. I found it difficult to read. Not up to Louis L'Amour's usual standard.

This is one of the Better books he wrote.

I enjoyed this book, it had less cattle war, and more logic and reasoning behind most of the killings.
