Whistlin' Dan Barry is one of the most interesting characters in Western fiction. With uncanny abilities he controls a wild stallion, appropriately named Satan, and a ferocious wolf dog, Black Bart. Easy going, Barry proves absolutely unforgiving when physically assaulted by a feared, vicious outlaw, Jim Silent. Seemingly without any emotions, Whistlin' Dan is relentless in his vengeful search for Silent and his outlaw gang. The is the first book in the "Whistlin Dan" series. (Introduction by rkilmer)

Reviews

Whistlin' Dan


(5 stars)

This is a lovely story about Whistlin' Dan, his horse, his dog/wolf and the girl who loves him. The story contains it's fair share of outlaws and shoot-outs, but is also full of man’s sense of loyalty and honour. It is read by Richard Kilmer in a clear, measured and thoughtful way. Thank you.

Great wild story


(5 stars)

three part main character. Dan, Satan, and the wolf. MB must love horses, because his descriptions are beautiful.

Unmatched


(5 stars)

Superb poetic prose, powerfully drawn characters, breath-taking suspense, and the soul resonating mystery of Whistlin' Dan, Pan of the Desert.

The Untamed


(5 stars)

Max Brand was the best of Western writers and this, the first story in the Whistlin' Dan series, shows his mastery. The reading by Richard Kilmer conjures the spirit of the Wild West, which makes this book excellent company whilst driving the M60 (that's a Mancunian joke). TheBookworm (Manchester, UK)

Saga of a Western Superhero, & his faithful companions


(5 stars)

A captivating Western fable of a strong, silent, mysterious hero, his faithful animal companions and the beautiful woman who is hopelessly in love with him. Together the man and his companions defeat a legendary bad guy. An old fashioned story beautifully read.

The Untamed


(5 stars)

This is a well written and unpredictable adventure. It has excitement, gun fights, good guys and bad guys with an even sprinkle of romance. Great story read by an excellent reader.
