The Big Fifty

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Johnny D. Boggs

Narrated By: Lloyd James

Date: June 2005

Duration: 6 hours 37 minutes

Summary:

The reality of frontier life in Kansas in 1872 becomes brutally clear to twelve-year-old Coady McIlvain when his father is scalped by hostile Indians and Coady is taken prisoner. Coady is determined to escape and does so, falling in with a buffalo sharpshooter named Dylan Griffith, whom he sees as the embodiment of his hero, Buffalo Bill Cody, a role in which the circumspect Griffith feels himself totally inadequate. The two face real adventure surviving the unforgiving terrain with Coady's former captors on their trail and with outlaw Comancheros to be avoided. In The Big Fifty-another name for the famous Sharps rifle-Johnny D. Boggs has created a gripping Western story with constant juxtapositions between the myths and legends created by Eastern storytellers out of the actual often brutal realities of frontier life.
