A collection of nine short stories that originally appeared in magazine form brings readers to the world of open-range cattlemen, roving desperadoes, fortune-staking gamblers, strong-willed women, lawmen, and outlaws. Reprint. *Author: LAmour, Louis *Subtitle: Frontier Stories *Publication Date: 1996/04/01 *Number of Pages: 177 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 4.25 *Height: 7.00
From the Publisher:
Cattlemen ride alone across the open range under the deadly aim of roving desperadoes—Gamblers stake their fortunes and their lives on a deck of cards—Strong-willed senoritas seek independence through an enticing combination of beauty, audacity, and spirit—Lawmen and outlaws walk the same dusty streets and speak a common language: Colt, Winchester, Smith & Wesson. Gritty, tough, and unflinchingly authentic, here is the West as it really was: a land where for every friend there is an enemy, for every handshake a fist, for every dispute a resolution--usually in an explosive showdown of blood and bullets. In these remarkable tales, Louis L'Amour—like the very heroes he depicts—blazes a trail across the American frontier and takes us on an unforgiving journey into the heart of our western heritage.
Author Bio
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.
