THE LEGENDS OF THE WEST
In this exciting collection of short stories, Louis L’Amour, the legendary voice of the American West, celebrates the unique breed of men who worked the great cattle ranches. Men like Dan Regan, who refused to surrender when trouble came . . . Con Fargo, who would fight for what was his—despite the odds . . . Rowdy Horn, a small-time rancher with big-time dreams . . . Tandy Thayer, too loyal to forget a friend . . . Bill Carey, who might have fallen low, but not low enough to let the likes of Tabat Ryerson ride off with a woman like Jane Conway . . . and in the classic title story, Danny Lonigan, a hard rider who faced a group of rustlers without fear—or mercy.

Another awesome book by Louis Lamour, and one of my favorites
At the beginning of ¿Lonigan¿ the Circle G ranch is without the main member of the crew, Lonigan. The Circle G ranch is moving their cattle to ¿This side of Dodge City.¿ The grass is getting scarce as the cattle drive nears the middle of its journey, when the owner of the Circle G, Ruth Gurney, runs on to a set of mysterious tracks. She starts following them, and she finds a man is in front of the tracks. It now is too dark to go back to the herd again, so the stranger persuades her to go to a cabin down the canyon. At the cabin they find four people who are acting like cattle rustlers. The next day Ruth and the stranger go back to the herd to find that more cattle have been stolen. All of the other cattle hands recognize the stranger when he and Ruth show up at camp. It is the long lost Danny Lonigan. Lonigan then helps Ruth get the cattle safely to market. Louis L¿Amour really does an outstanding job when writing ¿Lonigan.¿ He has a way of making a few select characters stay in readers¿ minds even after they¿ve read the book. He accomplishes this by describing the charters in such detail that the reader can actually vividly visualize the character. He also does a great job of putting readers in the mood by adding great detail to every scene. He also describes the soundings so that readers feel like they are in the country themselves. If someone like western books he/she is sure to enjoy this book.
As always, very good. L'Amour is one of the best!
