This spellbinding Western is not your usual homespun yarn. The vengeful tale of Pierre le Rouge, gunman McGurk and outlaw Jim Boone's wild daughter, Jack, is suspenseful and exciting. Dick Hill's narration captures Brand's characterizations and literary voice with consistency and clarity. Hill sets the mood by sounding like an old cowboy telling the story around a campfire. The many male characters are easily distinguished, and the two females are believable. Listeners are sure to be transported back to the romance of the old West. Buy for libraries in which Westerns circulate or recommend to non-Western listeners. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
The Great West, prior to the century’s turn, abounded in legend. Stories were told of fabled gunmen whose bullets always magically found their mark, of mighty stallions whose tireless gallop rivaled the speed of the wind, of glorious women whose beauty stunned mind and heart. But nowhere in the vast spread of the mountain-desert country was there a greater legend told than the story of Red Pierre and the phantom gunfighter, McGurk.
Not till you'd promised to stick by him. I told him that myself, but he said that you're young and that he'd teach you to like this life whether you wanted to or not. Me speaking personally, I agree with Black Gandil: This is the worst fool thing that dad has ever done. What do we want with you--in Hal's place!

The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.
