Dick Wilkinson ably reads this traditional Western, which captures the glory of the U.S. Army's summer campaign against the Cheyenne and Sioux after the Battle of Little Big Horn. Wilkinson's dramatic skills and resonant tones easily portray famous characters such as William F. (Buffalo Bill) Cody, General George Crook, and Crazy Horse, as well as Seamus Donegan, frontier scout and Indian fighter. Strong on dialogue and creative word pictures, Johnston's story depicts the brutal campaign in which the "enemies" included not only Native Americans, but also the elements, disease, and despair. Minor sound effects enhance the action and create logical breaks. Wilkinson seems truly involved in this realistic story of the Old West.
