The Lone Star Ranger

Gelesen von Mark F. Smith

(4,62 Sterne; 1083 Bewertungen)

Buck Duane, son of a famous gunfighter, falls prey to the old problem - called out by a cowboy who wants to make trouble, Duane kills him and then must ride off to the lawless country near the Neuces River to escape being arrested and perhaps, hanged. His brief encounter with deadly gun-play has ignited a deep urging to repeat the adrenaline rush but is tempered by ghosts that haunt his sleep. He only dares to release his inner demon when he is taking down an outlaw who is particularly known for his brutality.
He develops a reputation for killing the most notorious Texas outlaws, which draws an unexpected interest: a captain of the Texas Rangers offers him a pardon and a ranger's badge if he will infiltrate the gang of the shadowy figure known as "Cheseldine" who wields vast power in West Texas, and make it possible for the Rangers to break the gang's hold on the region's towns. Duane accepts, never guessing in his wildest nightmares that he would sniff out this Cheseldine, his hideouts, his lieutenants... and fall in love with his daughter! (Summary by Mark F. Smith) (11 hr 11 min)

the lone star ranger

(4,5 Sterne)

well written story. my first time experience with Zane Gray my relatives and friends have been long time fans. I understand it now I had thought only hard core western lovers would enjoy it, I was wrong. the reader is excellent like so many of the volunteers.

Loved the story! I'm a fan of Zane Grey anyway and have read most of his books, but I've not seen this one before. I think it's one of his best. Delighted to have "found" a new reader as well. I've already looked up the books you've read, Mr. Smith and will work my way through the list.

FRAN STRIKER LOVED IT

If you didn't enjoy this book, then you need to read "EASTERNS." To the listener who commented on the non-Texas accent, I presume that the reader copied Rock Hudson in "Giant." The accent was fine with me.

This was an interesting listen. It dragged at first due to a tough hand being dealt the main character and it seemed all was lost. But then the action picked up in the second half and ended happily, if somewhat abruptly. However, for me the narrative was spoilt by a large chunk (two whole chapters or more) being almost identical to a section of “the rustlers of pecos county”, with simply the characters names having been changed. Naturally, it didn’t therefore sit well within this storyline and felt like it had been forced into the text almost as if Zane Grey had run out of ideas. This was a real shame. The last few chapters however were original once again and a good listen.

most engaging story

(5 Sterne)

I enjoy cowboy 🤠 stories. This was a wild west shown as tough and unforgiving to men of good character that made bad decisions. The hero struggles with choices between good and evil. Ultimately, he has a difficult choice to make. I enjoyed this book. Mark Smith is one of the best readers that Librivox has. He could probably make any book great if so inclined.

Great Story, Almost Perfect Reading

(4 Sterne)

Love the story. The reader does a great job. It's tough for a reader to use different voices for each character. it's particularly tough for a man to do a woman and vice versa. He attempts to do the female voices and it doesn't work. The rest is so good though that you should listen to this.

Lone Star Ranger is awesome!!

Long ago I began my ride with the men pend by Zane Grey. The trails end may be just around the next bend for me but it soothes my spirit to know that this adventure will be shared by generations to come. Happy Trails, Will Snuffin
