Description

Crispin Mayo was a reckless young brawler who’d left his tiny fishing village for the vast American frontier. Headed west to join a railroad construction crew, he came upon an isolated station - and a mystery. The shack was abandoned, but fresh blood spattered the floor, and the telegraph was clicking away unattended. When Mayo stepped inside and put a hand on the telegraph key, he had no way of knowing the course of his life would change forever - and that he would become entangled with a band of Civil War veterans with a score to settle against the government...and a feisty young woman who’d risk anything to save the people she loved. Cris Mayo, who had never backed away from a fight in his life, was about to have his courage put to the ultimate test.

Great read

Another great book from Louis L'amour. I think I've listened to a read all of his books and keep on wanting to listen to them again.

A very good story!

Louis L’Amour, once again, has delivered a very interesting and entertaining story. And, if there is another author who can describe a gunfight or a fistfight in such vivid detail I would like to read their words. I have not yet found that author.

Superb rendition. Stellar narrator.

Many times westerns seem like the same old story. Enough uniqueness in this one to stand out. Well worth the listen!

Story of Irish Immigration

I first read this book in 1981 as a paperback book. This is a tale of a young Irish lad, Crispin Mayo, who leaves Ireland and immigrates to America. He gets a job laying track for the Union Pacific Railway. L’Amour was a professional boxer as a young man. He sometimes puts in a boxing match in his stories. He included a boxing match in this story and included some history of boxing. This is not one of L’Amour’s (1908-1988) best books, but his not-so-good is better than most other authors. This book is a fast easy read back into the wild west.

The book is seven hours and twenty minutes. Johnathan Davis does a good job narrating the book. Davis is an actor and voice-over artist. He was a finalist for the Audie Award and has won several EarPhone Awards.

Excellent

A variable version of a typical L'Amour style of tale. Loved the Irish characters utilized therein. I always appreciate his usage of courtesy, ethics, and common sense.

classic western tale with a twist

really liked the Irish slant to this story, so many times the Irish influence in the building of the west is forgotten.

Another Great Louis L'Amour Story

I always finish these books quickly. We need more of the old west heroes today. This story is another intriguing can't put the book down tale.
