Author Info
Louis L'Amour
Born in Jamestown, North Dakota in 1908, Western novelist Louis L'Amour lived the life of an adventurer. He held jobs as a longshoreman, lumberjack, miner, elephant handler, boxer, and fruit picker, among others. During his years traveling he was shipwrecked in the West Indies, and was also left stranded in the Mojove Desert. And of course, he worked as a journalist, lecturer, and author. L'Amour's body of work includes over 100 books, several of which have been made into films. He won the American Book Award in 1980, was the first novelist to win the Congressional Gold Medal, in 1983, and was awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. L'Amour married Katherine Elizabeth Adams in 1956, and the couple reared two children, Beau and Angelique. He died at his home in Los Angeles in 1988.
From the Publisher
Editors Note No one brings to life the Old West like Louis LAmour. Collected here for the first time, these vintage frontier stories introduce you to lawmen and loners, ranchers and renegades, gunslingers, cardsharps, bank robbers, etc. In these pages LAmour brings to life such classic characters as the Cactus Kid, Tensleep Mooney, One-Eared Tim, and the gunfighter Kim Sartain. These are frontier tales as only L'Amour can tell them--stories that surprise like the sharp crack of a Winchester and move like the lonely howl of the wind across an empty plain on the long ride home.
Editors Note 1 America's favorite western author brings the Old West to life with vintage frontier stories. Here are the lawmen and loners, ranchers and renegades, gunslingers and Indians that made the West colorful and dangerous. Includes the stories "The Cactus Kid Pays a Debt", "Ride or Start Shootin'", and "Long Ride Home".
Editors Note 2 RIDE ALONG INTO DANGER   Traveling under an alias, the last thing gunman Clip Haynes wanted was attention. But Basin City needed a town-taming marshal, and a cold-blooded murderer was hiding behind Haynes's real name. Now Haynes was coming out of hiding to protect his honor, save a town, and catch a killer?even if it cost him his life.   Lou Morgan was as tough as they came. But it wasn't just the money or the challenge that motivated him to take on a suicide job involving a buried Spanish treasure and two greedy killers. It was love for a beautiful señorita who had left him for dead years ago.   It's not easy being the new schoolma'am in town . . . especially when you're a man. But Van Brady isn't quite the tenderfoot he seems, and before he's through he'll teach a few hard cases a lesson they'll never forget.   From the rough-and-tumble streets of San Francisco to the dry desert plains of Texas, from a roughshod gambler willing to wager his own life on a single bet to a killer with a heart, here are stirring tales of the Old West as only Louis L'Amour can write them, tales of men and women risking their lives, fighting their wars, and standing tall on the American frontier.
Editors Note 3 An anthology of vintage tales of the American West features "No Man's Land," "The Cactus Kid Pays a Debt," "Ride or Start Shootin," the title story, and five other tales
