Classic Louis L'Amour! Each story starts with a bang, gallops quickly, and ends with an exciting if predictable ending! Westerns are excellent at descriptions and L'Amour's ability to handle the move from environmental descriptions to fighting seamlessly is remarkable. Louis is famous for doing copious amounts of research and it shows! Would highly recommend to any fans of Westerns as well as those into analyzing human nature!!

I love the Louis L'amour books! I grew up reading them and they are a best friend that I always love to visit again. The short stories are a blessing when time is limited and it's great to be able to "finish" a story in the little time I get to read. I have read these so many times, that it's fun to find missing people or missed connections in the short stories.
