Overview


One of America's favorite writers captures the wild and glorious spirit of the American West.

Set against a breathtaking landscape painted with eloquent stories, here are the extraordinary characters, the desperate odds, and the spirit of a wild frontier as only Elmore Leonard can evoke them. In these three classic novels, Leonard has crafted raw, hard-bitten tales of courage, treachery, and redemption. In The Bounty Hunters, a cavalryman turned Indian scout rides after an Apache renegade&151;while he himself is pursued by a hate-filled relationship with a powerful army commander. In Forty Lashes Less One, two prisoners search for a way out of a hellhole of hatred and suffering—and find it in a crazed, violent contest. And in Gunsights, an Arizona land war draws a carnival of reporters, photographers, and spectators, while it puts two fierce frontier fighters and best friends on opposite sides of a deadly serious fight.

Elmore Leonard’s electrifying western novels, many captured on film, stand as some of the most vivid writing of his career. Crackling with Leonard’s trademark dialogue, set against a beautifully evoked landscape, here are classic works that capture the wild and glorious spirit of the American West.
