Golden Voice Grover Gardner surely had fun narrating this rollicking adventure, All the Cowboys Ain’t Gone. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minksoff discuss how Gardner doesn’t miss a beat and is spot-on narrating the Texan protagonist aligned with the French, German, British, and North African characters who inhabit the fantastical Kingdom of Mur. The hero, Lincoln Smith, finds the turn of the 20th century too modern and seeks adventure abroad. He endures enough scrapes and near-death experiences to fill a box of dime novels.
