Publisher's Summary

As far as the eye can see is a vast, empty horizon. Evie Teale has finally accepted that her husband won’t be coming home. To make ends meet she runs a temporary stage station. But though she is diligent and careful, Evie must prepare for the day when the passengers no longer come and she must protect her children in an untamed country where’s it’s far easier to die than to live.

Miles away, another solitary soul battles for survival. Conagher is a lean, dark-eyed drifter who is not about to let a gang of rustlers push him around. While searching the isolated canyons for missing cattle, he finds notes tied to tumbleweeds rolling with the wind. The bleak, spare words echo Conagher’s own whispered prayers for companionship. Who is this mysterious woman on the other side of the wind? Conagher only hopes he can stay alive long enough to find her.

Great story

Well it’s a great little novel , one of his more romantic stories and the movie 1991 staring Sam Elliot and kathrine Ross is one of the few times where the movie and the book are almost completely in sync. Jason cult has read many Louis La’mour stories and does a great job, however he wouldn’t have been my choice for Conagher. Nonetheless it is a great way to pass the time. And worth a credit.

Favorite Louis L’Amour!

I really enjoy this story! Good pace, good story line. Action and romance. A few facts and details are wrong, but it didn’t take away from how much I loved this story!

Very cool

I listened non-stop, and I was thoroughly entertained on my long ride from New Mexico to Dallas, TX. This book made time fly.

One of the best

I’ve read most of not all of Louis Lamour’s books over the years. It was an aural pleasure listening to this story as it is one of my favorites(couldn’t choose just one if I tried).
Two people searching for the other and never realizing it until the end. The story line is so engaging that I had to listen to it until end.

Really good western story

I am a fan of western books, but I have enjoyed Conagher especially. The story is good without so much graphic detail in the shootings, however it does carry the knock down drag out fight scenes I associate with Louis L’amour stories. I think Jason Culp is an excellent narrator and look forward to his easygoing style. I have listened to this story many times over and look for more like it.

Love Louis!

I have seen the movie dozens of times. I have always enjoyed it. The book would have been better had Sam Elliott read it. I loved the way book hinted that the characters would move into the ranch close to Tay. I was happy that Con found the body and money.

thoroughly entertaining

A sweet story well told and I felt I was living out there in that desolate place.
As an 85 year old Englishman I grew up with stereotypes such as Gary Cooper and Conagher.
America.......alas no more.
