In his extraordinary career Louis L'Amour captured the spirit of America as few writers ever have. A storyteller whose universal themes of bravery, pride, adventure, and self-reliance have echoed across generations, L'Amour set a standard that has yet to be matched.

In the title story, May There Be a Road, L'Amour weaves a powerful tale of a young Tibetan khan who leads a small band of horsemen on a daring escape with his betrothed across a treacherous mountain landscape of granite and ice. On their trail is a ruthless Chinese colonel and the might of the Red Army. At stake is the survival of a people and an ancient way of life.

    " This book has detailed animated short stories. Very adventurous. It gave me motivation to go through the day. The characters that Louis Lamour writes about are very rough around the edges, heroic! It's a blast to read! "
