Sintesi dell'editore

"Ross Hardy had made his decision. He sat in the middle of all he owned, a splendid Appaloosa gelding, a fine California saddle, a .44 Winchester rifle, and two walnut-stocked Colt .44 pistols. These were his all. It was a life that had left him rich in experience, but poor in goods of the world. The experience was the hard-fisted experience of cold winters, dry ranges, and the dusty bitterness of cattle drives. He had fought Comanches and rustlers, hunted buffalo and horse thieves. Now he was going to ride for himself, to fight for himself." (From the book)

Another Great Story by Louis L'Amour

The Rider of the Ruby Hills is another tribute to the great story-teller. The suspense keeps your attention all the way through. Not your usual range war. I don't want to give anything away, but if you like Louis L'Amour I know you'll like this one.

Narrator was a little much.

This is a typical Louis L’Amour story. I really did like the story. This is the first time I have heard the original story. I’ve read the later book several times. I think I like this story version better. The narrator was too much like an old, crotchety stereotype of a Western man. I never realized how much difference this made until I listened to a different narrator who didn’t read like it was a bad melodrama.

Good listen

Good story, with a couple of good twists. Decent character development. Excellent narrator. He really makes the story come alive. The bad is the rather predictable last chapter, as the main character assumes superman attributes.

Bad reader

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Jim Gough tries WAY too hard to sound like a Texan, and it detracts from the story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Gough’s performances?

No. His affectations were that annoying.
