Not all outlaws are bad mend. Rich Ames didn’t set out to be a gunslinger–it was forced on him. When two men roughed up his sweet sister, Rich reached for his trusty Colt and let loose on them. When the smoke cleared, Rich was the only one standing, now a fugitive of the law and forced to abandon his quaint home and family in Tonto Basin. Rich soon acquired the name “Arizona Ames” and for years after that fateful day his name struck fear into the hearts of bad men all over the West. To some people, Arizona was a bad man. Certainly he was quick with a six-gun; to be sure there were many notches in the Colt he threw with such lightning rapidity; but at his core he was a good man, forced into a life of wandering for protecting his kin. Arizona Ames is a classic western full of thrill and adventure, written by the granddaddy of them all–Zane Grey. Join Rich “Arizona” Ames as he travels his home state meting out justice and evading the law. Pearl Zane Grey was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that were a basis for the Western genre in literature and the arts; he idealized the American frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage was his best-selling book. Grey became one of the first millionaire authors. With his veracity and emotional intensity, he connected with millions of readers worldwide, during peacetime and war, and inspired many Western writers who followed him. In addition to the commercial success of his printed works, they had second lives and continuing influence when adapted as films and television productions. He was a major force in shaping the myths of the Old West; his books and stories were adapted into other media, such as film and TV productions and as of 2012, 112 films, two television episodes, and a television series, Dick Powell’s Zane Grey Theater, had been made that were based loosely on Grey’s novels and short stories.

Arizona Ames did not set out to make his mark as a gunfighter--it just happened. O'Neill's slow, soft speech perfectly portrays Ames. Actor-teacher O'Neill has a low-key, pleasant voice that strains, at times, to feminize voices for Arizona's conquests. In typical Grey fashion, Arizona not only removes the bad guys, but he charms the ladies, spoken for or not. O'Neill ably moves from Texas drawl to blustery Irish accent to down-home good old boy. He also has a knack for making Grey's sometimes unusual word choices sound natural. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
