anyone looking for a copy of the book YONDERING will find those stories printed here as well as some others that I had not read before. Many of these stories are stories of his own life either experienced by himself or by people he knew and/or worked with.

Amazing stories, I had no idea that Lamoure wrote anything besides Westerns.
These are adventure stories of the era around the Depression plus WW2.

A great collection of short western stories to read. I believe there are 8 books in the set. I started reading these after learning Louis L'Amour was my fathers favorite westerns writer.
