Crossfire Trail by Louis L'Amour
Narrator: Jason Culp
Length: 5 hrs and 3 mins
Date Read: April 2014
Genre: General Fiction, Western
Rafe Caradec—gambler, wanderer, soldier of fortune—was as hard a man as the battlefields and waterfronts of Latin America could fashion, but he was as good as his word. As Charles Rodney lay dying in a dank ship’s fo’c’sle, Rafe swore to make sure that Rodney’s Wyoming ranch went to his daughter, Ann. In Painted Rock, Wyoming, Caradec found land for a man to love, miles of rolling grasslands and towering mountains. He also found that one of the most ruthless men in the territory had set his sights on both Rodney’s ranch and his daughter. But Rafe Caradec had given his word, and once he’d looked deep into Ann Rodney’s eyes, nothing short of death would stop him from keeping the promise he’d made.

JUST A NOTE: Read It File It is for books that I have read that I need to keep track of. The reviews will be super short (think tweet longer length) but will serve the purpose of getting the books into UBB for tracking purposes 🙂

Read It File It Review: I love Louis L’Amour and while Crossfire Trail isn’t my favorite book by him, it is still a good read or reread. I picked it up again because I was curious how it would do in audio form.
Narrated By Jason Culp / Length: 5 hrs and 3 mins
Listen up: I think Jason Culp has an excellent voice and I will be trying him again in the future. My problem with the narration was due to my per-conceived notions of how these particular characters would sound. That isn’t the narrators fault. Jason did a great job with pacing and delivering of the story so please check him out.
