Riders of the Dawn and Ride, You Tonto Raiders were thought to be pulp stories originally, but L'Amour expanded them into short novels. Both are typical L'Amour, although not his best. Lots of action and gunplay, haunted, damaged characters who are redeemed by their experiences in the west; a perhaps surprisingly romantic tone; a sense of place as the West, rather than actual identified locations; heroes fighting for characters in need. Enjoyable on audio.
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".
