Presented by the St. Charles Players
A lively adaptation of Zane Grey's original adventure novel. A lazy evening wind bends the sage as it passes. A lone coyote greets the dusk with a plaintive howl. Suddenly, the nearby canyon rings with the sound of echoing gunfire. There's been trouble for some time now, even before the stranger rode in. Cattle are disappearing. Good men have been killed. Aroused by the distant thunder of rifles, the few riders that are loyal to the lady break for their horses. A stranger mounts his horse too, and becomes one of the riders heading toward the sound of the guns... Beliefs and passion become intertwined with betrayal and violence.
Faithful in adaptation to the source literature, monterey soundWorks was founded on the principal that a full scale audio dramatization using multiple actors, original music scores and digital sound effects created a full entertainment experience for the listener in a manner that can never be achieved by a single voice narration in a typical books-on-tape production.
