Publisher's Summary

It began with gold that had once belonged to Montezuma. Stolen and cached in a church in Mexico, it was recovered by two army officers who fled north for the French settlements. Along the way one stabbed the other to death. The remaining officer was eventually killed by Plains Indians, but he buried the treasure just before he died.

Now Ronan Chantry, a handful of trappers, and an Irish girl whose father was killed after telling her a few vague landmarks are searching for the lost treasure. But they are not alone. The girl’s uncle, Rafen Falvey, wants it, too. Like Chantry, he is well educated, bold, and determined. Under different circumstances the two men might have been friends. But in all likelihood it wouldn’t have made any difference. When it comes to gold, even friendship doesn’t keep men from killing each other.

tedious

Starts off quite promising, then quickly becomes tedious, then more of the same. dragged on until chapter 8, then skipped some until chapter 10, but it was still the same. tagged it finished as I could not take any more. some of the dialogue is quite silly, but mostly it is just plain boring.

AWESOME!!

this was a great listen. The storyline was excellent. It kept you interested all the way through the book. And I really enjoyed the narrator on this particular Louis L'Amour book.

Great story

Great story with an excellent reader. The voices of the characters were distinct and not mixed. Very enjoyable.

The ferguson rifle- audible app

I give this a very bad review! Because I have to wait too long to listen to another chapter.
I started listening to this story, I got as far as chapter 4 and had to update the app. It took two days to get the app working. It finally started working, but only gave me 30 minutes of listening. Now I must wait a week to listen for another 30 minutes! I paid for this book and was told I was able to keep it to listen regardless if I continued to be a member. Very angry with the whole situation.

Classic L'Amour

Where does The Ferguson Rifle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I believe this book would rank in the top 25 of the audiobooks I have listened to. It is classic L'amour with a few twists.

What about Brian D'Arcy James’s performance did you like?

D'arcy did a very commendable job at making the characters come to life. He did a good job with the entire presentation.

Any additional comments?

Being a fan of L'Amour, and having listened most of his books, I am a little prejudiced. This is another good book of his. The common trait in all of his books is that his hero, is uncommonly good at fighting, and are rugged with a sense of right and wrong. He carries the hero here to such an extraordinary height experiences, knowledge, and famous acquaintances, you wonder how any man could have attained all of that at such a young age. But the story is still good.
