Alone again! Just like his orphaned boyhood. Those are Nevada's thoughts as he turns from the only home and happiness he has ever known. But it had all been a lie, at least on his part. He was hiding his true identity from his best friend Ben, and the woman he loved, Hettie. They knew him as Nevada, a man they cared for and respected when in truth he was a wandering fugitive gunman, notorious from Nevada clear to Tombstone, Arizona. And now he had done what he swore never to do again, he had killed not one, but three men. But he didn't regret it, he had done it to save his friend Ben from being branded a rustler and going to prison. His sacrifice would now allow Ben to be free, to prosper, and to marry the love of his life. But the price he must now pay, is a living hell. A life alone, a life as his real self -- Notorious Outlaw Jim Lacy, but worst of all, a life without his best friend, Ben, and his most precious Hettie. Thus begins the exciting and emotional sequel to Zane Grey's The Forlorn River. Read by Jack Sondericker. 9 CD's 10.2 Hrs.

He was called Nevada, a name he took to lose his past. As a boy he had been thrown among brutal and evil men. He had worked himself above their influence time and again, only to be thrown back, by his own desire for justice or vengeance, into the midst of strife. With a new identity he made a new reputation, but old troubles and old enemies haunted him wherever he went.
Nevada was the quiet type who would rather work hard and plan for better days. Skilled with a horse and a rope, he could also shoot fast and straight. As he got closer to thinking he could get back to the woman he loved, a gang of rustlers threatened everything. Once again, he had to choose between risks, if his passions didn t choose for him.
