really liked it

Louis L'Amour is an old friend to all who devour his books. If you are looking for a technically perfect book, his work is not the place. There are often slight discontinuities in his work for example in this book he met Wild Bill for the first and last time then several chapters later met him again. If you are looking for a rollicking good read however you will have a hard time beating a Louis L'Amour story.

I learned from reading his books that first the story must flow. If the story does not grab the reader and immerse them into the world created by the authors thoughts the writer has failed. One thing for sure, Louis L'Amour never fails to captivate his reader. I recommend that you try him and see. Some writers write to the audience, Louis L'Amour always writes directly to you. When you read one of his books he is talking directly to you. Telling a story only to you. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to curl up with one of his stories understand the magic that a good story teller wields. For those of you who have not yet learned this, I invite you to find a quiet place and a cupa and let the world of Louis L'Amour devour you.
