Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If Huck Finn had gone West during the Gold Rush and lived to tell about it, he might have sounded much like Jaimie McPheeters in describing his incredibly hazardous trek by wagon train to California in 1849. Jaimie shares the storytelling with his father, an intelligent Scottish doctor whose ebullient personality is only slightly undermined by a weakness for gambling and strong drink. Reader Michael Lee is totally convincing as he reproduces, first, the thick Scottish brogue of the father; and then, the excited innocence of 14-year-old Jaimie. This audiobook's appended afterword, citing the author's impeccable research, makes it clear why the book won the Pulitzer Prize in 1959. Like Lonesome Dove (Audio Reviews, LJ 2/15/93), another Pulitzer Prize winner, it transforms history into breathtaking adventure. Highly recommended.-- Jo Carr, Sarasota, Fla.

    If you love stories of the Old West, this is for you!

    I first read this book at the age of 13 after watching the T.V. show starring Kurt Russell and Dan O'Herlihy. The book fascinated, educated, and enthralled me over the years. Each time I reread the novel, I came away with something new! It took almost 40 years for me to find a reprinting to replace my well-worn, pocket-sized copy. Give it a shot. It's a great read with truly endearing characters.

    Why is this EBooks twenty bucks? I will check it out at the library rather than pay twenty bucks for an electronic version. Disappointed in you, B&N.
