Didn't care for Max Brand or Zane Grey stories ~ Otherwise it would have been 5 stars! Louis L'Amour is absolute best!!!

Writers history

It was interesting to read a history of the of the three authors before reading the short stories. You also were given the names of other stories they have written.

Louis L'Amour was an American author. L'Amour's books, primarily Western fiction, remain enormously popular, and most have gone through multiple printings. At the time of his death all 101 of his works were in print (86 novels, 14 short-story collections and one full-length work of nonfiction) and he was considered "one of the world's most popular writers".
