Publisher's Summary

Paul McAllister, an aging military retiree, wants nothing more at this point in his life than to put the wars, cancer, and death of his wife behind him as he numbly glides into his final years doing the only thing he still enjoys – selling weapons and his services as a gunsmith on the gun show circuit of the American southwest.  

Driving down the road in the Mesilla Valley of southern New Mexico, sandwiched in the few hundred yards between the Robledo Mountains to the West and the Rio Grande to the East, Paul loses consciousness while returning home from a gun show. An hour later, he regains consciousness finding himself swept away on the tides of time. 

Is he really in the past? Is he dreaming? Is he in the midst of a psychotic episode? So begins his journey of discovery. Along the way, he battles Apache, Comanche, and Navajo warriors, fights bushwackers, discovers his roots, mines gold, finds love and friendship, and makes powerful enemies, all while establishing a home in the Mesilla Valley on the banks of the Rio Grande.

I like the story but

I did like the story but I did not care for the narrator of the book. I've read the book already and was looking forward to the audible version of Robledo Mountain. I just couldn't get into the audio version like I did the written version. Maybe the narrator will improve in the next title in the series. P C Allen does pretty good for his first novel and yes there are mistakes. What I like about him is that the next book is better. Mr. Allen improves his writing skills with each book. I never though about visiting New Mexico but after reading the series I would like to visit New Mexico now. It seems to be a beautiful part of the country.

Great Western

Great read with just enough science to make it plausible. Would recommend to my friends.

Really really liked reading the story but...

I had to stop listening. The story is great. The narrators voice is fantastic. just not together. personally I found the narrator disturbing when he tried to do a woman's voice. it was...disturbing...unsettling... Maybe it was just me but I am going to have to say no on the Audible version. Yikes.

Finally it’s on Audible

This is the first of the series and I have been waiting for it. I have enjoyed the story and it gives a great alternative history of Southern New Mexico. It’s one the best of this genre. I hope that the rest of the series will be out in audible soon.
