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).
“[In Max Brand’s writing, as in L’Amour’s and Grey’s,] every action is motivated…Each character is gnawed by the conflict between his wishes and the necessities of his experience.” (Robert Sampson, author of Yesterday’s Faces)
Here are three stories by the finest Western writers who ever lived. In “Cañon Walls” by Zane Grey, Smoke Bellew enters a remote Mormon settlement one jump ahead of a posse. In “Black Sheep” by Max Brand, Mary Valentine protects a man wanted by the law. In “The Sixth Shotgun” by Louis L’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 Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator Grover Gardner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

Here are three stories by the finest Western writers who ever lived.
In “Cañon Walls” by Zane Grey, Smoke Bellew enters a remote Mormon settlement only a jump ahead of a posse. Working as a ranch hand for a Mormon woman, Smoke makes her ranch a financial success, while also falling in love with her wanton daughter. But it is too good to last. The law follows him.
“Black Sheep” by Max Brand, finds young Mary Valentine—upstart, tomboy, and general troublemaker—protecting a man wanted by the law. Then her two cousins, who have been dodging the law, return home but decide to join a gang in a bank holdup.
In “The Sixth Shotgun” by Louis L’Amour, Leo Carver is about to be hung. The only problem is that a lot of folks are indebted to Leo for one thing or another.
