I m beginning to realize that my love of Louis L Amour wasn t not a passing childhood fancy Even if all his heroes are basically the same person I still enjoy each of his books There is a ring of authenticity that I love. The men are strong, the women are beautifulthe prose is spare,the plots engrossing. AwesomeI have read nearly all of LL s books and like them all he did such a great job of explaining the characters and showing us the west with only a small amount of unbelievable things mixed into them that no matter how many times I read them they are still fun to read. Loved them.I loved both the books in this collection I always feel as if I am transported to that time and place The heat of the desert, the fear of the foe, and the search for respite from both It is great to read a book that is so well written that you travel anywhere the author chooses.
