Publisher's Summary

“If a man won’t fight for what is rightly his, then he ain’t much account.” With this challenge from his dying father, young Shell Tucker rode out after three men who had stolen the twenty thousand dollars his father was carrying. Two of the men he hunted, Doc Sites and Kid Reese, were his friends. 

Dreaming of adventure, Tucker had wanted to join their gang. But now, with his father gone and the people back home desperately in need of the proceeds from the cattle drive, Shell was determined to uphold his father’s reputation and recover their money. He knew the odds were against him. Finding his friends would be difficult. Getting the money back would be nearly impossible.

another life lesson, from Louis L'amour

Louis Glamour, read by Michael Crouch is again another fine way to spend your hours in traffic. To escape the present day city and travle in your mind horseback from Texas to Colorado to Nevada and Los Angeles in the 1870s it's always a great ride ,when you have Louis L'Amour at your side

Tucker on the hunt

What did you love best about Tucker?

Great character who fought hard to keep the promise his father made

What other book might you compare Tucker to and why?

Louis L'Amour books are all good westerns.

Which scene was your favorite?

Tuckers settling of the score with the thief who stole the money (when you listen, you will understand).

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Tucker was a strong-willed, Who wanted to do what was right to those who trust in his father with the cattle. I enjoyed Tuckers difficult adventures that drove him to make right that was wronged.

Excellent Novel to read

One of my favorite Louis L’Amour novels. Terrible narration. I tried twice to get to the end but gave up on it. I however read it again.

A fun read

The narrator has a suitably youthful voice. Here reads well and the story itself is quite gripping.

Vintage L'Amour

Any additional comments?

This is another good L'Amour story, done in his normal style. Loving L'Amour like I do, it was very enjoyable. The narration was excellent at well.

Not his best story.

I have read all of his books and listened to all of his stories that are out. This story gets bogged down with chasing people non stop. I would spend my money on one of his other stories.

Tucker

This was a story of determination of a young man who wanted to do right by his father who hadn't always appreciated his fathers values, but upon his fathers death due to his wayward ways and bad association of friends decodes to complete his father's promise to the community that put their trust in his hands and recover the stolen money from their cattle drive. A good western story.

Still enjoyable, but drags a bit in some spots

As (almost) always, enjoyable to listen to despite some criticisms, but not the "top shelf" listening I've heard in some others. He delved into intricate details in some scenes a bit too much I felt and the story dragged on at times. Meeting up with certain key people (I won't say when) was a little too "just so" as well. I like Michael Crouches intonation and youthful sounding narrative, but struggle a bit with his short-sentence narration style, which continues throughout the whole of the story.
