Overview


These stories represent Louis L'Amour at his best—stirring adventure tales of the ageless Old West, as tough and gritty as the men who tames it. Each story is personally selected, with an introduction and special historical notes, by the author.

Meet men like Shad Marone, the gunfighter who killed in self-defense, but who is forced to run because he killed the wrong man—the sheriff's brother; Matt Sabre, as tough as the Texas trail he rides, on a mission of mercy to the wife of the man he gunned down; and Kim Sartain, a reckless young drifter who refuses to back down from a showdown with a vicious outlaw killer. Every story in this collection bear's Louis L'Amour's distinctive brand of unbridled action and unembellished authenticity—taking us into the white-hot deserts, stone-cold canyons, and rough-and-tumble towns of the world only he knows so well.
