A western the Tampa Bay Times hailed as "perfect!" "I reckon you don't know who you're talking to, mister. I'm Monte Lyman, and I'm not afraid of anybody, let alone a saddletramp drifting through town. Hell, I wouldn't even waste my time looking at you, except that I can't let folks get the idea that it's healthy to tangle with a Lyman.... All right, boys, go get him!"But the man Lyman was "teaching a lesson" to was no fiddlefoot drifter. He may have looked like one, but he was Jim Dixon, a fast shooting, fast thinking freighter who had come to town alone to scope out its business possibilities. But Dixon's men and wagons weren't far behind and together they made a hard-fighting partnership no man or men could stand against. Lyman had given Dixon a reason to stay, and so had his meeting with Ellen Carter a woman of good breeding and exceptional strength, married to one of the slimiest tinhorn gamblers in the West.Lyman held the entire town of Cottonwood in a grip if fear and everyone paid tribute to him. But not Jim Dixon. He was the only man who dared stand up to this two-bit tyrant, and soon the trails into and out of town were ringing with gunshots and one of the deadliest battles the range had ever seen. Because the only lesson Dixon learned from the midnight beating was that he'd better waste no time lining up his six-guns on Lyman's whole sidewinder crew. Dixon's only fear was that he would have to kill Ellen's husband - and that meant he could never marry her. But Ellen and the women of Cottonwood had their own plan for dealing with the war. Either way Lyman and his men were about to be tagged "fast freight for Boothill." 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dupuy.

Jackie Fabulous, a native New Yorker from the Bronx, is a gut-busting, headlining comedian who uses comedy to simultaneously entertain and inspire her audiences. Having survived her fair share of loves, tragedies, lessons, and embarrassing moments, Jackie channels all of that energy into a performance that makes it difficult not to want more. She comes with a message and a lesson that surpasses the stand-up comedy club stage and sets her apart from her peers. Before Jackie was the self-proclaimed Ambassador of Girls Night Out from the East Coast, a standup comedian performing to sold-out audiences all over Southern California, and a multifaceted entertainer, she moved to California to get a law degree and a husband. After successfully doing both, she realized that she was better suited to play a lawyer on television than to be one, and that the true love of her life is stand-up comedy! Once she realized her destiny, Jackie moved on to become a multifaceted performer riding waves of laughter by connecting with all races, genders, and socio-economic classes on a very personal level. According to stand-up comedy veteran, Arsenio Hall, Jackie, "...is making waves with her modern stand-up combo of charisma and smart sense of fun. When I put her on my late night show she crushed it! A funny ray of sunshine." More than just a funny lady, Jackie Fabulous has brains, supreme confidence, personality and wisdom that make her a comedic force to be reckoned with. She is at her best when she unabashedly speaks her truth. She's like Oprah, Rosie, Ellen, and Martha rolled into one. When Jackie isn't dropping knowledge on laughing crowds nationwide, making television appearances, or developing her own brand of talk show with her team, you can find her acting, giving motivational speeches, and authoring a book. Her talents have helped her explore and transition into other mediums of entertainment, including writing and producing for television. Kym Whitley 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackie Fabulous.
