Overview

The stories in <I>McQueen of the Tumbling K & Other Early Western Classics</I> date from the 1940s-50s, the beginning of Louis L'Amour's literary career. Each of these vintage tales was penned when he was a journeyman author, earning his living creating Western action for pulp magazines. The selection in this anthology was personally made by the editorial board of Buckskin Classics, who feel the individual stories are all emblematic of L'Amour's early short fiction at its best. "Ride, You Tonto Raiders!" is a rare magazine-length novel, worth the price of admission alone to L'Amour aficionados. The title story and "Riding for the Brand" are two long and meaty novelettes. "Trap of Gold," which pack's more suspense than any big budget movie, is off trail for L'Amour but authentically Western. "Mistakes Can Kill You" passes on a hard-earned lesson from the author's youth. And, "Trail to Pie Town" showcases the master's knack for telling the whole story of the West in a few brief pages.
