About this title


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.

From the Publisher:

L'Amour is one of the best-loved novelists of all time, but his short stories established his reputation in the golden age of magazines devoted to fiction--and his output was prodigious and eclectic. Now comes a collection of fourteen stories, newly unearthed gems that have never appeared in print until now, in this one-of-a-kind collection.

Here is the awe-inspiring natural wonder of the West and the rugged men and women who carved out their places amid its majesty, which L'Amour was uniquely able to conjure for millions of readers the world over. Here are tales which rise as proudly as a mountain peak, and sing as softly as a lone campfire; which pit brave people against both raw nature and human nature; which capture the West with an unmatched power that easily reaches forward to captivate readers in our time. Here is an undiscovered treasure trove of Louis L'Amour stories, never before published in book form, guaranteed to enthrall everyone who loves the great American frontier.
