Jornado is a journey, for revenge. With clarity and feeling, Gene Engene reads the story of Clint Evans's search for his wife's murderer. His accents, especially that of Mexican Phillipe, are neither overdone nor too emphatic. The characters are differentiated, and dramatization adds individuality to each one. The story highlights the way that seeking revenge changes people. A traditional story of the Old West well told. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
Plain Tales from the Hills (published 1888) is the first collection of short stories by Rudyard Kipling. Out of its 40 stories, 29 were initially published in the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, British India, (now in Pakistan) between November 1887 and June 1888.
No man will ever know the exact truth of this story; though women may sometimes whisper it to one another after a dance, when they are putting up their hair for the night and comparing lists of victims. A man, of course, cannot assist at these functions. So the tale must be told from the outside--in the dark--all wrong.
