TALES FROM THE OLD WEST, VOL. 1 by Zane Grey, et al. (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). â€œ[In Max Brandâ€™s writing, as in Lâ€™Amourâ€™s and Greyâ€™s,] every action is motivatedâ€¦Each character is gnawed by the conflict between his wishes and the necessities of his experience.â€ (Robert Sampson, author of Yesterdayâ€™s Faces) Here are three stories by the finest Western writers who ever lived. In â€œCañon Wallsâ€ by Zane Grey, Smoke Bellew enters a remote Mormon settlement one jump ahead of a posse. In â€œBlack Sheepâ€ by Max Brand, Mary Valentine protects a man wanted by the law. In â€œThe Sixth Shotgunâ€ by Louis Lâ€™Amour, Leo Carver is about to face a noose. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audioâ€™s AudieÂ®-winning narrator Grover Gardner.
