1994. Audio Renaissance Tapes.
Written By Max Brand.

Read By Barry Corbin.

For ten brutally hard years, Christopher Ballantine had selflessly struggled to scrape enough money out of his small ranch to put his younger brother and sister through college. But his siblings met his efforts with greed and contempt, and the town ridiculed him as a failure.

It was time for a change. Christopher would no longer be the meek, hard-working ranch owner. He was strong, smart, and he would show his family - and the world - that he was not someone to be taken for granted. Being the good guy had proven disastrous. Well, good was not the only way he could be.

"Barry Corbin is a Max Brand hero incarnate. His reading is so easy to listen to you don't want these short stories to end.
Craven outlaws, bloodthirsty bandits and, of course, beautiful women are all portrayed equally well in
Corbin's resonant voice. Character accents and genders are easily identified."
- S.C.A. AudioFile Magazine, March 1996.

"Listeners who enjoy the nearly lost art of storytelling will treasure this collection of Max Brand stories written in the 1930's. Perhaps a generation of new listeners, especially young adults, will also get to know these classics.
Barry Corbin is the perfect reader for the material. He has a tough gravelly voice, and his delivery and pacing lure the listener into the atmosphere of the turn-of-the-century West of bloodthirsty bandits, brave cowboys and beautiful women."
- B.V. AudioFile Magazine, March 1996.
