Overview

In this first of four classic frontier novels, Louis L'Amour adds his own special brand to the life and adventures of one of America's favorite fictional cowboys, Hopalong Cassidy. In The Rustlers of West Fork, the quick-thinking, fast-shooting cowpuncher heads west to deliver a fortune in bank notes to his old friend, Dick Jordan. When he arrives at the Circle J, he discovers that the rancher and his daughter, Pam, are being held prisoner by a desperate band of outlaws led by the ruthless Avery Sparr and his partner Arnold Soper. Even if Hopalong Cassidy can free Jordan and Pam, he will have to lead them across rough and untamed Apache country, stalked by the outlaws who have vowed to gun him down. But Hopalong is no stranger to trouble, and before his guns or his temper cool, he's determines to round up Sparr and his gang and bring the outlaws to justice ... dead or alive! This classic tale of pursuit and survival is vintage L'Amour and adds new life and luster to the legend of Hopalong Cassidy.

I have always had a passion for 'Louis L'Amour.' It takes a special reader to understand the 'West.' Yes, sometimes there are good plots or boredom, but back in the 'West,' it surely wasn't boredom to them. This book along with his others are a 'good' read! I enjoyed them.

I liked this book because it is action packed most of the time. Slow at times but usually speeds up into some action. Reminds you of the old days when your grandparents told you stories of what their grandparents said. Many of the battles are short because he usually kills everbody but has excellent details on the scene as if you were there. There is a bunch of good parts and there is some horrible parts but overall it is a exciting book and you should read if you like westerns with action all the way through the entire book. I also like this book because the Hopalong Cassidy series are excellent books to read.

Hopalong is a good charater. The plot is good and the charaters are believable. This is a must read book.'The trail to Seven Pines' is good too.
