Publisher's Summary

After his family is killed by a pack of rabid wolves, Jefferson Gray survives the horrid disease himself, with the aid of a Cherokee medicine man. But, unfortunately, he cannot banish the hatred that dwells within him: an animosity toward dangerous game, particularly timber wolves.

Fifteen years have passed. Timber Gray is known throughout the western territories as a seasoned tracker and hunter: a man who can conquer any threat for the right price, be it grizzly, mountain lion, or, his specialty, wolves. But can Timber tackle his greatest challenge - a pack of 50 wolves led by the legendary Cripplefoot? Such insurmountable odds, combined with an approaching blizzard and a band of renegade bounty hunters, would seem to be certain death to most men. But, to Timber Gray, it is only another reason for staying alive.

Timber Gray

This is a really good book to listen to. Timber Gray is a little better than most at hinting. This western has a good storyline. Brad Smith does a good job narration this book.

Great action/western

Ronald Kelly has a uniqueness that shines through in his writing. He’s capable of horrifying you, thrilling you, and making you feel empathy for each one of the characters. Timber Gray flew by so quick I could have listened to it twice and still been entertained thoroughly. The narrator’s somewhat southern accent really adds to the mood too. Can’t go wrong in purchasing.

ruined by reader

What was Brad Smith thinking? I have liked him when interviewed or participating in NPR's wait wait don't tell me or some of his own performances..but he is completely unequipped to read a book. His voice is hesitant and , although unique, is flat , monotonous and almost totally without inflection.
He brings nothing to the story and in fact detracts from the charters and descriptions .
The only reason I gave the number of starts was to be generous to the story.
I love Larry McMurty lonesome dove series for example and this is somewhat reminiscent of those westerns (although a 2 dimensional reflection of those wonderfully written books).
Still, I would have been entertained by the story and main character if I was reading it or if it was read by a more talented actor.
The problem is, a reader must ACT THE PARTS to make a story live. This effort , or lack of it ,was an embarrassing failure since Brad Smith is not an actor and is also a bad reader of anything except perhaps his own writing.

A Wild West Tale with Bite

Ronald Kelly delivers a story of survival in a rough mountainous landscape where wolves rule the land. This is one, might tall, ravenous redemption tale.
