The Flying U's Last Stand


Read by Lee Smalley

(4.3 stars; 19 reviews)

Settlers are lured to Montana by a land boom syndicate in a scheme that encroaches on the Flying U Ranch. Members of the Flying U attempt to thwart the land-grab, as its very existence is threatened. So begins a dramatically engrossing novel involving an array of fascinating characters, some innocent, others decidedly not. A spunky child goes missing, a prairie fire is set, and a romance begins. B. M. Bower wrote 57 acclaimed works based on the American Old West, with some of her most popular books centering on the Flying U Ranch. She also scripted several Western movies.

Reviews

Excellent reading and writing


(5 stars)

I especially enjoyed the last half of the book. Little Buck was captivating in thought and action.

Well Narrated


(4.5 stars)

Enjoyable tale following familiar characters (and some new ones!) of the Flying U on a new adventure. Not as good as Chip of The Flying U (in my opinion) but definitely worth the listen. You’ll fall in love with “the kid”!

easy listening


(2 stars)

great narrator, an interesting period in Americas history. It said nothing about the traditional owners?
