Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: July 2014
Duration: 6 hours 58 minutes
A collection of two stories by beloved Western writer Louis L’Amour
In “The Trail to Peach Meadow Canyon,” Mike Bastian has been raised by outlaw chief Ben Curry and trained in frontier skills by Curry’s most trusted associates. Curry now wants to retire from leadership of the gang he has headed for years. But he is frustrated in this ambition by various factions within his gang who want to seize leadership and by Mike himself, who is not sure that he wants to lead the life of an outlaw.
In “Showdown Trail,” Rock Bannon, wounded in an Indian attack, is rescued by a wagon train. When the train pulls into a fort to stock up on supplies, the leaders of the train meet the smooth-talking Morton Harper, who persuades them to take an easier trail. But Bannon knows that there will be no escape from attack on that route—and that it will lead the train directly into Hardy Bishop’s vicious land war.
“‘The Trail to Peach Meadow Canyon’ is vintage L'Amour and enhanced with the dramatic and skilled narrative talents of Jim Gough…enthusiastically recommended.”—Midwest Book Review
