Lincoln Smith, a young Texan living at the beginning of the twentieth century, thinks of himself as the last true cowboy. He longs for the days of the Old West, when men like his father, a famous Texas Ranger, lived by a chivalric code. But he finds himself hopelessly out of time and place in the fast-changing US of the new century. When he gets his heart broken by a modern maiden who doesn’t appreciate his anachronistic tendencies, he does what any sensible young romantic would do: he joins the French Foreign Legion.

On his way to an ancient and exotic country at the edge of the Sahara, Lincoln encounters a number of curious characters and strange adventures, from a desert hermit who can slow up time to a battle with a crocodile cult that worships the god of death. He meets them all with his own charming brand of courage and resourcefulness.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Grover Gardner’s old-fashioned cowpoke charm is a perfect choice for this turn-of-the-century adventure story. Listeners will find that Gardner’s consistent pace and modest twang deliver well through the entire journey, much like a reliable cow horse across the plains—or, as in this case, a camel across the Sahara…Gardner sprinkles Lincoln’s gullibility with chivalric ingenuity and subtle humor.”

About the Author

Though John J. Jacobson didn’t join the French Foreign Legion after being jilted by a girlfriend, or over his displeasure of missing the last great cattle drive, he has, borrowing Churchill’s phrase, lived a rather variegated life. He was born in Nevada, grew up in the West, surfed big waves in Hawaii, circled the world thrice, survived the sixties and seventies, corporate America, and grad school. Among other degrees he has an MA in Renaissance literature from Claremont Graduate University.
