These six stories describe the West of popular legend--where the good guys are bowlegged knights, the heroines virtuous and beautiful, the grammar fractured, and the Colt .45 the final arbiter of disputes. Mythifiers Max Brand, Ernest Haycox, Ray Hogan, Louis L'Amour and Luke Short are read by solo actors or small casts with varying degrees of competence, none below par and some pretty fine. Sound quality is pristine. Terry Ford does a particularly nice job with Brand's humorous "Taming of Red Thunder." Appreciative listeners must wait to the end of the last side to discover the narrators' identities. The publisher lists them nowhere on the packaging. Y.R. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
