Cattlemen ride alone across the open range under the deadly aim of roving desperadoes; gamblers stake their fortunes and their lives on a deck of cards; strong-willed senoritas seek independence through an enticing combination of beauty, audacity, and spirit. Lawmen and outlaws walk the same dusty streets and speak a common language: Colt, Winchester, Smith & Wesson.
Gritty, tough, and unflinchingly authentic, here is the West as it really was: a land where for every friend there is an enemy, for every handshake a fist, for every dispute a resolution - usually in an explosive showdown of blood and bullets.
In these remarkable tales, Louis L'Amour, like the very heroes he depicts, blazes a trail across the American frontier and takes us on an unforgiving journey into the heart of our Western heritage.
