Overview

The Collected Short Stories of Louis L'Amour, Volume 7: The Frontier Stories by Louis L'Amour

There is no story more distinctly American than the western and no writer as great a master of the form as Louis L’Amour. In this seventh volume of L’Amour’s collected short stories, you’ll find some of his most popular characters, heroes who have become a part of our cultural legacy, as well as the ordinary men and women whose adventures are chronicled with an immediacy no reader can resist–or ever forget.

In Louis L’Amour’s frontier stories, the American West is the crucible in which character is tested, reputations are won or lost, and life always hangs in the balance. Struggling to survive against the elements, hostile Indians, or outlaws who prey upon the honest and hardworking, the men and women in these tales each come face-to-face with what they’re made of–often in moments that explode with the violence of an avalanche or the speed of a drawn gun. Here L’Amour demonstrates the unerring touch for detail and keen insight into human nature that lend these stories the power to thrill, surprise, and entertain readers of every generation.

A man driven by his faith in the woman he loves survives war, Indian massacre, and near starvation only to find his homecoming delayed by one last battle–under his own roof. To stop a range war, a ranch foreman stands up to his boss, his men, and conspirators who seem to have both right and might on their side. And in a town where fourteen men have already died under suspicious circumstances, a new sheriff by the name of Utah Blaine patiently sets a trap for a frontier serial killer.

Here are stories of honest thieves and crooked lawmen, of dream chasers and treasure hunters, of men and women hoping for a second chance and others down to their last. This rich and varied cast embodies not only the spirit of the West but the timeless struggle of the best and worst in us all, on a stage as big as the frontier itself. Full of suspense, mystery, adventure, this remarkable collection has everything that’s earned Louis L’Amour his well-deserved reputation as America’s favorite storyteller.

I have all seven volumes of the collected short stories of Louis L'Amour. I hope there will be more coming. I don't have much down time, but I can escape to another time with these short sagas. I had mainly read non-fiction over the years but I became hooked after a friend suggested my reading "Education of a Wandering Man." Excellent read. I would have loved to have met Louis L'Amour. His autobiography was astounding. I hope his family/publishers keeps the short stories coming. I have always loved western movies so I imagine that's why I was drawn to his western stories. His writing style is so vivid that I feel that I am right in the story watching all the characters in-person! I am so surprised that I found much interest in the private eye and asian stories that center around the early 1900's, but I did. I am an employed 55 year old housewife and mother, and I thank you for "taking me away from time to time!"

At one point I had all of the Louis L'Amour books in paperback. Once I got my Nook, I donated the paperback books to the local library. I am in the process of redoing my personal library on my Nook. All of his books are what I call "easy / light reading". They are enjoyable and give insight into how once we were able to do business with just a word or a handshake. While his more modern books don't appeal to me a great deal, all of his westerns have great appeal and are well documented. I would recommend any of his westerns, the full books as well as the short stories.
