9780553574449: Valley of the Sun

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.

From the Publisher:

Louis L'Amour remains one of the most popular fiction authors in the world, the master storyteller of the American frontier experience. While best known for his dozens of novels, a unique mark of L'Amour's excellence and tale-spinning appeal is that he is also perhaps the best-selling short story writer of modern times. No other author in this century has published seventeen individual short story collections, each selling well over one million copies. Valley Of The Sun is a new collection of short stories never before published in book form. Within its pages, the men and women who helped tame the American West spring to active, exciting life. Here is the danger, the mighty challenge of the raw, brutal land met head-on by the courage, the strength, and even the humor of the brave adventurers who dared to ride the lonely mesas, work the ranches and build the towns. Each story is brimming with L'Amour's authentic feel for the real West and his unerring skill at captivating readers.

About the Author:

Our foremost storyteller of the authentic West, Louis L’Amour has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and women who settled the American frontier. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print around the world.
