Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Audio
Schaefer's classic Western has finally been released in audio. Here, the author gives longer treatment to the themes he explored in his better-known novella, Shane. This book chronicles the adventures of the eponymous Walsh, a rascally, womanizing bronc rider and his stalwart, rope-prodigy partner Chet Rollins. It includes a silent, gunblazing charro, boyish cowboy pranking, rocky romances with big-hearted hookers, and mournful meditations on the disappearance of the frontier. Veteran voice actor Eric Dove's lighthearted and masculine performance suits the work and brings it to life. VERDICT Essential for all Western audiobook fans and highly recommended to readers generally.—Mark Swails, Johnson Cty. Community Coll., Overland Park, KS

    Highly Recommend

    Both the Lee Marvin and Tom Selleck Movies are excellent and the book and this audio CD exceed the movies. Shane is an excellent book but Monte Walsh surpasses the classic. Jack Schaefer truly captured the cowboy life and culture. If you don't like this book you don't like westerns. Cannot praise this book enough,

    Best western I have ever read.

    I have read this book several times. All though first chapter is a little slow, from two on, it is great. Even if you do not like westerns, I think you would like this book. Each chapter is a separate short story, but combined they make a great book.

    The best western I have ever read.

    I,m a 5th fith generation rancher and cowboy. I tell you this as a basis for my statment that Monte Walsh captures the essence of the American cowboy better than any other book I have ever read. I laughed out loud and was close to tears reading this book. It just reaches out and grabs you and you can't put it down.

    Best Western ever written.

    I am and have been a horseman and cowboy for 35 years. I have old time friends that were there at the turn of the Century. All who read Monty Walsh say " That is how it was. " You can't get a better review than that!
