Narrated by J. Rodney Turner

Genre: Western

Run Time: 5 hrs and 14 mins


Eldon Hitchens, better known as Hitch, kills a slave owner, marries the slave, sets her free, and starts out on the Oregon Trail with his new wife and a friend named John.

Additional Comments:

  • Clean Western.
  • Seemed like a really long intro to something grander.
  • I enjoyed the characters and would read more about them. They seem nice. I might have just read a super violent book that makes this one even duller, but it just didn’t seem like anything meaningful happened.
  • Everybody fits in no problem.
  • No gruesome details of hardship along the trail. Every river crossing went fine. Maybe I got spoiled by the Oregon Trail game. Where’s the dysentery and dying?
  • This might be the first book in a long time that has almost 0 conflict. Everybody who’s truly a nasty soul usually ends up with a bullet in them.
  • Everybody else is just nice regular folk who all live peacefully and help each other out.
  • Everybody’s a crack shot or has a special skill.
  • Every pairing works without a hitch.
  • The performance fit the Western genre very well but I’m not sure it fit the character Hitch too well. He sounded like a much older man.


Intriguing characters alone can’t carry the entire weight of a book. I’m holding out hope that book 2 features some conflicts to see what these characters are truly made of.
