From the Inside Flap

Louis L'Amour's life was as exciting as the fiction he wrote. And in this exclusive audio program America's favorite storyteller talks about his early experiences as a miner searching for gold and silver in the hard rock mines of the old West and gives his firsthand observations of the hard and dangerous life of a miner and the special breed of men who risked their lives daily to dig the earth for riches--and too often found their own graves. These collections are vividly re-created in Richard Crenna's performance of Dead End Drift, one of L'Amour's famous Yondering tales. This harrowing story of a real-life mine cave-in is L'Amour's fictionalized account of the last hours of four trapped miners and their courageous struggle to save themselves from certain death.

Dead End Drift provides a unique look at Louis L'Amour, the man and his work.

From AudioFile

In a program by New York gonzo producer David Rapkin, author L'Amour reminisces on one side, and Richard Crenna acts out a story on the other. We say "acts out" because what he does is too rich to be called reading or narrating. He inhabits the tale, becomes the characters. His performance is slightly flawed by poor mastering, but the power is all there nonetheless. That this actor, best known for his roles in "Our Miss Brooks," "The Real McCoys" and Rambo films, is one of Hollywood's best has been an open secret for fifty years. Rapkin (who, by the way, did not master this) sparingly adds sonic reinforcement where it will do the most good. Y.R. More than two dozen titles in the Louis L'Amour series are available. Some are full-cast programs; others, as this one, have a single actor. Sound effects and casting are routinely superb, despite the varying success of the stories. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
