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 A collection of classic adventure...From the jungles of Borneo to the hidden canyons of the American West, from small-town fight clubs to a Parisian café at the end of World War II, here are tales of betrayal and revenge, courage and cowardice, glory and greed, as only Louis L'Amour can tell them. Here is L'Amour at his very best. A charismatic boxer itches to fight all comers—but his only shot at the championship is in beating the man who ruined his father.... A beautiful movie star finds a dead man in her apartment and begs her ex-lover, a tough private eye, to clear her name.... A reluctant hero guides a diamond-hunting couple up a river ruled by headhunters and pirates in pursuit of a legendary stone and the mysterious warlord who guards it.... A young renegade sails the South China Sea with a trio of dangerous men in search of treasure, but when it's time to divide the prize, can he trust any of them? Combining electrifying action scenes, vivid historical detail, and characters who seem to leap off the page, these spectacular stories honor the legend of Louis L'Amour.
