Description
In 1871 Utah, young Jane Withersteen is courted by Elder Tull, the leader of her polygamous Mormon church. When Jane refuses, the local Mormons persecute her. Meanwhile, Jane's friend, Bern Venters, is captured by Tull's posse and faces a harsh sentence. Jane defends him, causing even more friction with the Mormon populace. Enter Lassiter, a friend to Venters and an infamous gunslinger. His appearance causes Tull and his men to release Venters and flee - sparking a conflict that leaves Jane questioning her loyalties, Venters finding love, and Lassiter seeking revenge.

      • source: New York Times
      • content: Poignant in its emotional qualities.
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Zane Grey's first (1912) and most popular bestseller defined the mythical Wild West for subsequent generations. A saintly Mormon girl of Utah battling unremittingly evil "Mor-men" finds a protector and wooer in a chivalric, albeit homicidal, gunslinger, whilst another paladin of the plains shoots, then saves, then falls for a masked rustlerette, the pawn of the villain who's been stealing the Mormon girl's cattle. Possessed of a pleasant and manly baritone, John Hitchcock gives a straightforward and colorless rendition of the derring-do. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The most famous of Zane Grey's classic Western novels is presented here unembellished. It launched a career that saw more than 80 more over the years. The flat intonations of reader Pat Bottino remind this listener of actor Henry Fonda--the same middle-American voice without a large range of inflection or emotion. One can detect a tightening of the voice when the villains appear; but the women are not delineated, and very little distinguishes the characters. Nevertheless, the novel, set in the Mormon country of southern Utah, is so powerful that the package doesn't disappoint. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The St. Charles Players portray a multitude of characters in the highly entertaining radio-theater-style production. Professional effects will enthrall listeners with sounds of gunfire, stampeding stock, and the wildlife of Utah. Each character has a unique male or female voice, making this true "theater of the mind." Jane Witherspoon runs a large, prosperous cattle ranch; but when she disobeys Mormon elders, her stock and hired men start disappearing. Help comes in the form of a gunfighter, Lassiter. Listeners will enjoy the excitement and intrigue of the Western frontier created by players and author. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Gunman Lassiter helps a wealthy Mormon rancher protect her ranch from cattle rustlers and the church. In the Recorded Books' lightly dramatized production Donald Buka's twang and clear voice accent the tale well; even though his reading is dry, he delivers at the dramatic points. E.L.C.
