Set in the vast Wyoming territory, this masterpiece helped establish the code of the West and its stereotypical characters. The novel also features the first known "shootout" in American literature.

A full-cast dramatization keeps this Western story fast-paced and involving. Set in Wyoming, this tells of a Southerner who is peaceful, fair, and strong - but lacking in romance. Enter a beautiful Eastern woman to complete his life. The dramatic recording style makes for a wonderful presentation filled with the action and defects of an old-time radio show, but with modern players (the St. Charles Players).
