For millions of readers, the name Louis L’Amour is synonymous with the excitement of the Old West. His brilliant stories and novels capture all the adventure and action of those glorious days of the American frontier. But for too long, many of these tales have only been available in revised, altered versions, often very different from their original form. Here, collected together in paperback for the first time, are eight of L’Amour’s finest stories, all carefully restored to their initial magazine publication versions.
These are stories of range wars and wagon trains, saloon singers and hired guns. They are tales of courage and danger, hardship and survival. And each thrilling story is presented the way Louis L’Amour originally wrote it, packed with the flavor and feel of the American West.

L’Amour released his first novel, Hondo, in 1953 and consistently produced 3 novels a year until his death in 1988. Since his death, more than 80 million additional copies of his work have been sold. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print.From AudioFile:
This short story is a pastiche of all the unmemorable Westerns one has ever seen. The dramatization is formulaic, workmanlike but undistiguished. One could easily mistake it for a radio drama of the '50's. The script leans heavily on the narrator to provide information about setting and ambiance, which in a more painstaking work is provided by dialogue and sound effects. The performers sound like competent professionals working under pressure to get out a product quickly. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
