More About This Book

Overview

Classic Western Tales from Louis L'Amour! Here is a passel of stories by the supreme master of the western tale, Louis L'Amour. Forgotten for almost forty years, they were penned at the outset of L'Amour's career, when he was writing for the late, lamented pulp magazines. Though he would gain his greatest success with the novel, this volume reveals him to have been an equally accomplished practitioner of short story and novelette. If you are already a Louis L'Amour fan, stories like "Lit a Shuck for Texas," "Desert Death Song," "Blood of Ryan," and "Law of the Desert Born" will confirm your opinion of the master's abilities; and if you are not yet a fan, these stories will make you one. When Louis L'Amour writes of the West, he knows it intimately, having worked extensively throughout the region in a variety of jobs Las a young man in the 1920s-30s. There he met, and learned from, the last of the gunfighters and cowtown sheriffs from the days of the Old West, when the Daltons and the Earps still rode. But the first tales of the frontier he heard were at his parents' knees, for one of his grandfathers had been scalped by the Sioux. With this background, it's little wonder that he became one of the supreme tellers of authentic tales of Western action and bravery. A must read!
