Publisher's Summary

Addison True is an old school, rollicking western adventure ride - a sweeping, epic American saga. The historical novel is 1000 pages in print but split into two volumes for Audible. It follows the title character, a quintessential American hero, from Addy’s arrival in Gold Rush San Francisco in 1849, age 18, to guiding a winter-trapped wagon train down the back side of the Sierra, pioneering a stagecoach route through Apache territory, getting caught in the 1855 Plains war, serving as sheriff of Leavenworth during “bloody Kansas” days, Pony Express station keeper in Nebraska territory, to the Civil War. He is a scout-turned-spy for Grant at Vicksburg, and he and a slave escape north from Mississippi to Ohio. There is a concluding chapter back on the Plains.

What did the narrator say?

I could not understand the mumbling, tooth whistling guy. It is a shame, but that is what I get for not sampling before buying.

best book in years

This has to be the best western book I have heard in years. As good or better than Loui LaMoor.
Non stop action. No foul language, heart felt romance without sex.
Great for young adult or old codger like myself.
