I knew Louis L'Amour was a very prolific Western author. Some of his books have been made into movies probably the most famous was Hondo with John Wayne. While the Haunted Mesa took place in the Southwest,it took place in modern times and wasn't a "Western". It was more SCI-FI. I like SCI-FI but was expecting something different. I like the smell of horse sweat, leather, sagebrush and gunsmoke. I will try another of his books.

Ron I have not read a book by Louis L'Amour before but did know he was a prolific western writer. Several of his books have been made into movies probably the most famous was Hondo with John Wayne. While the story takes place in the southwest it is not a "western". It takes place in modern time and is a Sci-Fi. While I like Sci-Fi, for a western I want to smell horse sweat, leather, sagebrush and gunsmoke.
