I have listened to the first three of this series (The Big Sky, The Way West and These Thousand Hills) in order and they are truly excellent Western novels, each in it's own right. The reader, Kevin Foley is masterful at his rendition of the voices of different characters and his cadence and articulation seem just right for the material. Guthrie always astonishes me with the tiny details sprinkled throughout his books that bring the reader directly to the reality of life of these intrepid people of 150 years ago. You will be thoroughly absorbed and entertained.

A person who'd like to read a good book involving fictional characters during the western expansion but who doesn't want to be observed carrying around Louis L'Amour novels can begin a good, long reading voyage with these AB Guthrie books beginning with the Big Sky. The characters aren't cardboard cutouts, the plotting is tight and the book was written and published during an era when publishing houses edited the books and didn't pad them with dozens of pages of introspection, gratuitous sexual tittilations, and dragging unnecessary dialogue.
