Overview

Cattlemen ride alone across the open range under the deadly aim of roving desperadoes. . . . Gamblers stake their fortunes and their lives on a deck of cards. . . . Strong-willed señoritas seek independence through an enticing combination of beauty, audacity, and spirit. . . . Lawmen and outlaws walk the same dusty streets and speak a common language: Colt, Winchester, Smith & Wesson. Gritty, tough, and unflinchingly authentic, here is the West as it really was: a land where for every friend there is an enemy, for every handshake a fist, for every dispute a resolution—usually in an explosive showdown of blood and bullets. In these remarkable tales, Louis L’Amour—like the very heroes he depicts—blazes a trail across the American frontier and takes us on an unforgettable journey into the heart of our western heritage.

Louis L'Amour is far and away the most famous name in frontier fiction. His short story output was so prolific that many gems he originally wrote for magazines remained uncollected--until now. This book brings together nine of these tales and reveals the author at the height of his powers.

    This is a book with about 9 short stories. It is amazing that he can write really good short stories within 20 pages or so for each story. I hope to find a book that is a longer story rather than short stories. Louis L'Amour is a great writer of Westerns - no doubt!!!

    Sunstar's Story-Chapter Six

    "Wintershadow! Springflower! Summerwish! Autumnsong! Wintershadow! Springflower! Summerwish! Autumnsong!" The clan chanted. Sunpelt ran to Wintershadiw and licked him. He purred deeply. She turned to Springflower and Autumnsong and mewed, "Congrats!" "Thanks!" They squealed happily. Sunpelt ran to hug Summerwish. "You're a warrior!" She purred happily. "Now we're sleeping in the same den for good!" Summerwish replied, licking her friend. Suddenly Thornberry's voice interuppted their conversation. "All warriors and apprentices over here!" She called. Sunpelt and Summerwish raced over. When everyone had gathered around the deputy, Thornberry began to organize patrols. "Cloudblaze, you lead Tigerfur, Autumnsong, Springflower, and Dawnpaw on hunting patrol. Sunpelt, you take Nightstripe, Summerwish, Sweetflower, Wintershadow, and Flamepaw on border patrol." Sunpelt nodded and led her patrol into the forest over to ShadowClan's border. Some cats were on ThunderClan's side of the border! With a furious hiss, Sunpelt launched herself at a ShadowClan warrior named Ratface. She clawed at his face and underbelly, which sent him yowling in pain through the trees. She looked around and saw Wintershadow chase of a cat named Fangtooth. Springflower and Sweetflower were battling a big muscular tom named Molewhisker together, and Flamepaw was scuffling with a pinkish white she cat apprentice named Cherrypaw. Sunpelt was about to leap to help her clanmates when a big paw slammed into her. She looked up as she struggled to get up. She mentally groaned. She would never be able to get up! This was Snakefang, the meanest and biggest ShadowClan warrior. She was about to give up struggling when someone knocked Snakefang off of her. She smiled as he helped her up. "Wintershadow! You saved me!" She breathed, nuzzling him. Wintershadow purred. "I couldn't let hurt my mate!" He mewed. The others had chased away the ShadowClan warriors, so the patrol headed back to camp, Sunpelt and Wintershadow's tail's twined. CHAPTER SEVEN IN NEXT RESULT!
