Part 6 of the Hopalong Cassidy series.
Hopalong Cassidy is an iconic western cowboy hero conceived by Clarence Mulford, but immortalized in a series of films starring William Boyd from 1935-1948. A tough-talking and violent character in the print novels, Cassidy was remade into a clean-cut hero who traveled the West with his sidekicks fighting villains who took advantage of the weak. Clarence E Mulford takes you back to the beginning by relating the stories (as told to him by Red and the boys of the BAR-20) of how Buck Peters started the BAR-20 ranch. It tells of how he picked up Hopalong Cassidy, Red Connors, Skinny Thompson, and many of the other colorful characters in this famous series.
"R.C. Bray is the perfect match for Clarence Mulford's seminal Western. The story unfolds episodically, and new characters are regularly introduced. Using a variety of accents and voices, Bray does well at distinguishing new characters while maintaining the continuity of the familiar cast. Reflecting the feminine archetype, the handful of female characters are high pitched and breathless. Particularly notable is Bray's adeptness with the authentic and colorful dialogue, whether it's jawing between cowpunchers or heated encounters involving six-shooters." - AudioFile Magazine
