Product Overview

He rode wild country with wilder men. He was a loner who owned nothing but his horse and saddle-and his guns. He was a man willing to gamble his life to get the woman he wanted... He was Shalako.

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
Annotation A rich, beautiful woman who occupied the desert along with her servants and fine champagne. A tribe of Apaches who lurked in the desert mountains, with deadly intent. A horseman who, although he rode with wild men, was a loner who owned nothing but his horse and saddle. Originally published in 1985, this reissue of "Shalako" confirms L'Amour's enduring popularity with readers of Westerns.
Editors Note He rode wild country with wilder men. He was a loner who owned nothing but his horse and saddle-and his guns. He was a man willing to gamble his life to get the woman he wanted... He was Shalako.
Editors Note 2 She was rich and beautiful--a lady in the desert with servants, champagne, the best of everything. They were the grim-faced killers who haunted the high peaks, the scourge of the desert--the Apache. He was Shalako.
Editors Note 3 While crossing the Sonoran Desert--the Apaches' killing ground--alone, the fierce loner Shalako takes up the defense of a European hunting party, whose members include Irina Carnarvon, a brave and beautiful woman. Reissue.
