WHERE THE REAL FRONTIER BEGINS
 
A young cowpuncher stakes a claim that can only be sealed with fists and a .44 Colt. . . . A gunfighter, tired of violence, finds himself pushed down a trail of bloody revenge. . . . From purple sage to gambler’s gold, from a señorita’s tempting smile to a splash of blood in the dust, here are stories with a distinctive L’Amour twist. A quiet farmer defends his honor in a moment of panic and luck . . . only to find true courage on the run from the dead man’s brothers. A young drifter defends a lady’s honor . . . and finds himself the quarry of a hanging posse. An aging marshal with a reputation as a crack shot faces a stranger who knows his secret. With relentless suspense and unforgettable drama, Louis L’Amour once again paints a vivid portrait of our western heritage that will live forever.

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: Louis Lamoure
    Title of review: West of Dodge
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 4 out of 5


    The writer starts out with a very good description of the terrain and then he moves to the people and describes them from head to toe from their cowboy hat to their cowboy boots. He also describes the town so good you can visualize it.
    Description and summary of main points
    The rising action start with a strange man riding in to town and a new sheriff get into a gunfight and the sheriff gets shot but he is still alive and right then. Well I'll let you read the rest.


    Overall the book is very good but there are other stories in it because this was just a short story the books other stories are just as good. From his much described writing to his dramatic conclusions His writing has kept me interested since the first page.


    Louis has written hundreds of westerns short stories and novels. Everything I have read of his I liked. I recommend this book to any one who likes westerns and western adventure.


    My final review is that it is one of my favorite books. I never wanted to stop reading. The gunfights and the frontier he describes everything with intriguing
    Detail. I would recommend this book to eight grade and up because of the level of his writing most all his his writing most all his book are great.
