Publisher's Summary

Colonel Utah Blaine, held captive by the Army of the Revolution, broke out of jail and headed north from Mexico with nothing but the clothes on his back. Then he found new trouble struggling at the end of a noose - and stepped in just in time to save the life of a Texas rancher. The would-be executioners were the rancher’s own men, looking to steal his land.

Now Utah has a unique proposition: Have the wealthy Texan play dead, introduce himself as the spread’s new foreman, and take care of the outlaws one by one. The wage to fight another man’s war? A hundred a month plus expenses. The cost of falling in love while he earns that wage? It wasn’t exactly part of the original agreement, but Utah will soon find out–unless the bad guys get to him first.

If You Like Westerns, You'll Love Louis L'Amour

Utah Blaine found himself in a Mexican prison awaiting a firing squad. Not liking his situation he escapes. All he has is the clothes he is wearing, a canteen, a couple worn out blankets and a Bowie knife. Afoot he puts as much distance between him and Mexico as humanly possible. Exhausted he falls into some tall grass to rest, when he is awakened by several riders on horseback; a lynch mob. What can he do?

True to L'Amour's style the story is descriptive and full of adventure.
Great narration by Craig Klein.

I like Westerns, although Historical Romance is my genre of choice. Having been disappointed with my choices recently in that genre I decided to see what Louis L'Amour had to offer, and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed listening to Utah Blaine, and I think you will too.

Great Western Audio.

I enjoy all of the western audios of Louis Lamour. There are different voices doing the reading but they all draw your attention to the story and it is easy to imagine yourself riding alongside the characters.

Good story, good writing, good performance

From start to finish, I was hooked. The characterization of Utah Blaine is that of a good man, ready to do what he knows is right, in the face of all odds. He's what a man should be, and I admires him throughout the story. All the characters felt right. L'amour shows without having to tell. The narrator keeps the atmosphere and pace of the story just right.
