In the bustling streets of St. Louis, two cousins have a dream: to travel west with a wagon train of supplies and make a fortune in trade. Since a rugged mountain man called the Preacher saved their bacon once before, they turn to him again. Preacher needs a job and is heading west anyway. But he doesnt bargain on the beautiful woman who sneaks her way into the wagon train and the trouble she brings on board. Then, before he can wash his hands of the whole bunch, hes suddenly in a fight for his life. Sensing easy prey, outlaws in a lawless land have swooped down on the band of pilgrims already bitterly divided by secrets, passions, and hatred. And for that, they will all answer to the Preacher.

Graphic Audio's full cast re-creates the many violent and charming characters in Johnstone's classic Western. Creative voices, music, and digital sound effects enhance the gunfights, horse-and-wagon travel, and Indian attacks that are part of the journey to the Shining Mountains. The cast members, especially those who portray precocious Jake and the powerful Preacher, give skillful performances, and the battles are exciting and frightening. The small band of travelers is divided by secrets, passions, and hatred, but Preacher holds them together and keeps them safe. At the end of each CD, listeners are told to "reload," and this adds a quirky authenticity to the moving experience of the Old West. S.C.A.
