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 Louis L?Amour?s world is built on those dramatic moments when men and women cast their fears, doubts, and pasts behind them and plunge into the unknown?into split-second decisions with life-and-death consequences. Nowhere is that more evident than in this latest collection of stories set on the American frontier. Here L?Amour takes us across a bold, beautifully rendered landscape where strangers may come to trust?or kill?one another; where old scores haunt new lives and the wrong choice leaves unwitting victims. Even at the best of times, this is a world in which every man and woman must be responsible for their own survival.This keepsake volume features unforgettable moments and timeless characters. From fugitives to visionaries, from fortune seekers and drifters seeking a new life to young women trying to build homes in an all too often lawless world, the characters in these pulse-pounding stories are vintage L?Amour. Together in this vivid, rollicking collection of stories, they bring to life the American spirit and confirm Louis L?Amour?s place at the very top of the pantheon of American writers.
Editors Note 1 The fifth volume in a series of anthologies that will present the complete collection of short fiction by the popular novelist encompasses twenty-seven action-packed tales of the frontier, including selections from Long Ride Home, Riding for the Brand, and Valley of the Sun, as well as the complete Cactus Kid stories.
