Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Our foremost storyteller of the American West, Louis L’Amour has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and women who settled the frontier. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print around the world.


From the Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

L'Amour is a master storyteller, who speaks personally to listeners about his life and stories in this collection of Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie tales. As we join Chick in his adventures all over the Southwest, a full cast enhances the characterizations, and realistic sound effects and music dramatize the gunfights, saloon brawls, and cattle roundups. Using varying vocal quality, modulation, and tone, the readers help listeners identify the many male characters. The cast also brings terrific Western accents, as well as the brutality of the Old West to life. This crisp, clear production sparkles and reminds us of the days when the radio drama was king.

Being retired, I enjoy listening to books on CD. This was a good western by Louis L'Amour. Enjoy.

I bought this as a gift for my step dad for his birthday.
My ex husband and I used to listen to these and we loved them and I highly recommended them to my step dad, as he drives a truck and is on the road a lot and thought this might be something he would like instead of having to switch stations on the radio as he drives across the US to pick up and deliver trailers.
When he heard a clip of the dramatizations he loved them, as he likes westerns. I personally am not fond of westerns, but I absolutely LOVE Chick Bowdrie dramatizations by Louis L'Amour. They are very interesting, almost like watching a movie with the dramatizations opposed to just someone reading the book, which is boring, to me.There is absolutely nothing I DON'T like, however, I was not told this would be included in my other order of another Louis L'Amour collection that I had ordered. I made 2 separate orders, not ordered together or at the same time. I ordered one collection, then a few hours later I ordered this set and both orders came together in one box, but that is okay. They are both for my step dad for his birthday. They both got here A LOT sooner than anticipated, which was VERY nice. I ordered them on Sunday, March 10th,2013 and they weren't supposed to get here till today (Wednesday March 13th), but they both arrived yesterday, the tracking said it would be by yesterday, even though the receipt said they wouldn't be here till today (Wednesday), and it said that it would be here around 8:00pm but they got here by 4:30pm or earlier. I was VERY impressed and VERY pleased! Now I can wrap these and take them up to him on Saturday before he goes on the road again! (However, now I want them for myself, lol)

Very good. Each story had a great life of it's own. Can't wait to get into vol 2.

This review refers to the "Collected Bowdrie Dramatizations: Volume 1" by Louis L'Amour

These audio dramatizations are a real treat for fans of Louis L'Amour - especially if you love the Chick Bowdrie stories.

Chick Bowdrie, Texas Ranger, was one of L'Amour's greatest characters. And there were many Bowdrie stories written. Even if you have read them all, these full-cast productions will give you about 6 hours of enjoyment. Included are some of the earliest Bowdrie tales, including the very first, "McNelly Knows a Ranger". That was the one that decided Chick's fate; the path he would take in life. We also get in these early stories, a good background on Bowdrie.

Other stories included are:
A Job For A Ranger
Bowdrie Rides A Coyote Trail
A Trail To The West
Outlaws Of Poplar Creek
Bowdrie Follows a Cold Trail.

All the stories are full of adventure, with Bowdrie using all his skills - tracking, detecting, and of course his expert and legendary way with a gun - to bring in the bad guys.

The audio experience is wonderful. Listening to them with a full-cast(Bowdrie, played by the same voice in each), is like listening to an old-time radio play. The sound quality and sound effects - music, horses, gunshots, etc.- put you right into the action. Each story is on its own disc and runs about an hour each.

Great for long drives or listening around the fire,
Saddle up with L'Amour and Bowdrie and Happy Trails....Laurie

I really like all of the Louis L'Amour audio discs that I purchased...They are in some ways better than the books, as I don't have to hold them,or turn pages. I like to listen to them right before I'm ready to go to bed. One can hear the horses; the different voices of characters, the gunshots and some of the background noises, almost like a movie, but without a picture. I will probably try to get all of the Louis L'Amour audio discs as I am already collecting all of his books, and also own all of the Zane Grey western books.

This is an interesting series of short stories about a Texas Ranger that captures one's interest and holds the interest throughout the entire story. These stories would make a fantastic movie or television show. The dramatization factor makes the story even more interesting. My suggestion - get all of the Chick Bowdrie stories and listen to them in order.

I had purchased Vol. III a few years ago and really liked it, so I needed to get Vol. I and II. Finally got them for Christmas this year and they are great. If you like Louis L'Amour, and the Bowdrie series, you'll love these dramatizations. They are well done short stories, that are great for listening to on road trips.
