Publisher's Summary

A classic about the American West and the life and times of one tough cowboy, Monte Walsh. Partial to pretty women, gambling, and practical jokes, Monte doesn't have to look far to find trouble. Luckily for him, Monte's best friend, Chet, is always there to post bail or quickly get Monte out of town. As Monte grows older, though, and the West inevitably changes, he resists changing with it, and shows his dedication and loyalty to the cowboy way of life.

The popular 1970 film starring Lee Havin and Jack Palance is loosely based on this moving story by Jack Schaefer.

Dreamscape is proud to present Monte Walsh, a classic American western not to be missed.

Rules to live by

Inspiring, Monty represents the person we should all stress to be. Times gone by, but it doesn’t take an era to define the fact that everyone has the opportunity to be a humanitarian

Iconic and American

Exuberant, energetic, and raw.
There’s a reason our National identity is all tied up with the relatively brief period of the cowboy era.
Monte Walsh is about as American as a story gets. It’s long. I listened to it on and off all fall. I still didn’t want it to end.
One of the greats.

Monte Walsh is a must read for western fans

Monte Walsh is a man few are like but many rightfully strive to be. this book tells his story from boyhood through his later years, from after the civil war till the end of the wild west. Monte's love of horses and strong sense of individualism keep the spirit of the west alive and is a must read for western fans as it truthfully earns the title of CLASSIC WESTERN.

Great book!

As far as I'm concerned, this is the greatest book ever written. Eric G. Dove does an outstanding job narrating this book. Through his work, these characters come alive!!
