Texas Rangers
1 : The Buckskin Line

by Elmer Kelton
Feb 1, 2010
6 Hours
Ages 13+
A Comanche war party raids settlements and steals horses. A young warrior named Buffalo Caller kills a young couple, then abducts their red-haired little boy. The boy is rescued by a volunteer defender of the white settlers named Mike Shannon, who raises the boy as his own and calls him Rusty.

The Buckskin Line follows Rusty Shannon, who becomes a young man during the turbulent, lawless period of secession and the Civil War, as he seeks to avenge the murder of his foster father, crosses paths again with Buffalo Caller, and becomes one of the frontier defenders who will, in time, become known as The Texas Rangers.

TEXAS RANGERS 1 : The Buckskin Line by Betsy (Posted on 7/10/2015)
I'm impressed with the development of the story line. It's easy to become caught up in the lives of the characters.
The Buckskin Line by Dale (Posted on 2/10/2015)
Well written story. Easy to get caught up in it. Mr. Kelton seems to have done his research. The production crew did an excellent job of bringing a good story to life.
The Buckskin Line by Amy (Posted on 10/5/2014)
Westerns weren't really a genre I read terribly much of. However, I spotted some at a library that looked intriguing, and once I started, I could not stop. Things got better and better when I saw that Graphic Audio had produced the series. I bought it, and the story took on a whole new dimension. The sound effects, acting, and narration drew me right into the story. The quality of the finished product was excellent, as well. David Coin as Rusty is a particularly favorite choice of casting. The story is gripping in and of itself, but the G.A. interpretation renders the plot all the more dynamic.
The Yee-Haw! in your Mind by The New Yorker (Posted on 8/21/2013)
A few months ago, we remembered Elmer Kelton, spinner of Texas tales, smiling small-town cowboy-poet. If you’re a fan, here’s a new way to experience his “Texas Rangers” series: audio books from a studio called “GraphicAudio” that promise to create “a movie in your mind.” It’s pretty awesome: not only do you get real actors hamming it up (essentially, they sound like they’re playing a game of cowboys and Indians), but you get a background soundtrack of clomping horse hooves. You can listen to the first hour of “The Buckskin Line,” book 1 in the series, for free on the GraphicAudio site. Macy Halford, Feb 1, 2010. The New Yorker Magazine.
a powerful soundscape that includes a musical score, sound effects, and the voices of a full cast by AudioFile Magazine (Posted on 8/20/2013)
In this latest production in GraphicAudio’s series, Rusty Shannon has left home to join the Texas Rangers to heal from the recent murder of his father. But tensions are high as Texas votes on whether to join the Union or the Confederacy. The potential for violence is spilling into the Native American community, whose members have much to lose if the state goes Confederate. Kelton’s narrative provides a strong foundation for a powerful soundscape that includes a musical score, sound effects, and the voices of a full cast. The story’s main narrator delivers his words in a gritty and haggard voice that epitomizes the mythic Western hero, and the other male voices project equally believable voices.

Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 7/12/2013)
This is a decent series. This first story is just getting the characters developed and turns out pretty good. The only negative about this story is the treatment of the woman by the indians. I don't like that stuff. I know it is reality but I still don't like it.
