The entire presentation is a first-rate listening experience. by AudioFile Magazine (Posted on 8/20/2013)
A full cast, music, and sound effects bring to life the world of Hewey Calloway, an aging cowhand in 1910 Texas. Hewey’s nephew, Tommy, runs away from home and winds up on Hewey's crew at the Circle W. Hewey, who is an old-fashioned cowboy without a gun but with a big heart, runs into trouble with a new foreman. The plot takes an unusual turn when Hewey gets busted up by a mean ol' bronc. The topnotch cast pours life into Kelton’s well-crafted dialogue. The voices we hear the most—those of Hewey, Tommy, and the narrator—are well suited to Kelton’s characters. The entire presentation is a first-rate listening experience. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 7/12/2013)
I really thought this story was great. I like the voice for Hewey. My only fault was that when I bought this story it seemed from the order on the website that this one was first. I listened to it first and it is actually the last. Six bits for a day is actually the first. But none the less I really liked it well. Not a shoot em up western but just a good story. I really related to his injuries after having had a wreck and busting up my hip and knee this past year. I really liked this story again. Just wish I had listened to it last instead of first. The music on these stories is slightly different and it was really a good change.
