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.

Internet Book Watch

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).
