One sometimes forgets how skilled how skilled a writer Grey was; this is a two-part story of a youth turned gunman turned Texas Ranger. Gene Engene has a choppy vocal style; he is given to unexpected pauses, stresses in odd places, and vocalizations that are not entirely full but inject character all the same. The general pace is slow, but his Western cadences fit this Zane Grey oat opera rather well. Engene is effective in delivering distinctive men's voices, often harsh and guttural; he is not so competent with the women, who all sound pretty much the same. Still, readers/listeners of Westerns will generally like this sharply recorded, quality presentation. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
This Zane Grey western takes place in Texas in the 1870s. After killing a man in self-defense, Buck Duane becomes an outlaw, living among the gunfighters and rustlers along the Texas border.
In a camp on the Mexican side, he tries to rescue a young girl held prisoner, bringing down the wrath of her captors, and forcing him to live the life of a loner, pursued by both honest men and outlaws. Eventually, a sympathetic Ranger wins a pardon for Duane, who then becomes a Ranger himself. The tale is full of action and suspense -- the outcome always hanging tensely in the balance.
