Ronicky and his buddy Bill Gregg travel east to New York City on the trail of Caroline Smith in this most unusual tale. Author Brand may have been having a private laugh at his editor's expense by exposing these Westerners to some of the horrors of big city life. The tale becomes a mystery, for when the girl is found, she won't leave with Gregg. Doone must discover the secret that holds Caroline to New York. In finding the answer, he meets the sinister John Mark and the beautiful Ruth Tolliver. The listener will be interested in discovering just how Brand gets these folks back to the mountain desert and how many big city vices they encounter on the way. This is an unusual story, part tongue-in-cheek, part mystery, but not really a Western. Recommended for libraries with large general fiction collections. Western fans will prefer Brand's Destry Rides Again (Audio Reviews, LJ 3/1/93) . For a review of Brand's The Three Crosses , see below.--ed.

Ronicky Doone is a very romantic Western. Bill Gregg's search for Caroline Smith is assisted by the infamous Ronicky. Roger Dressler reads this Max Brand tale of the old West with style and even pacing. His baritone is enjoyable and consistent in tone and volume. Male characters dominate, and Dressler's voice makes them come alive. Though not an unusual or unique plot, the twists and turns are believable and interesting. Recommend this title to Romance listeners as well as Western aficionados. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
Partner," said Ronicky Doone, "if they are trying to keep her away from us they sure have the sense to keep her under cover for as long as two days. Ain't that right? It looks pretty bad for us, but I'm staying here for one solid week, anyway. It's just about our last chance, Bill. We've done our hunting pretty near as well as we could. If we don't land her this trip, I'm about ready to give up.
