No one more vividly captures the rugged majesty and enduring
spirit of the American West than Louis L’Amour. Now, collected for the very
first time, here are seven frontier tales from a legendary master of the genre.
Volume One celebrates this remarkable voice in American fiction with a
captivating blend of some of his best-beloved work.
Listeners are brought face-to-face with heroism in a most
unexpected place in “The Gift of Cochise,” as a single mother faces down an
Apache war party. “Desperate Men” follows four escaped convicts running a
gauntlet of double and triple crosses in a hunt for gold that will leave only
one of them alive. In “Skull and the Arrow,” a beaten man finds the strength to
confront his enemies in the discovery of a simple arrowhead. In “Marshal of
Canyon Gap,” a new face in town means nothing but trouble to Marshal McLane—not
only for Canyon Cap, but for the secret he’s kept for too many years. In “The
Defense of Sentinel,” a whiskey-soaked drunk wakes to find that he’s only hope
for a town surrounded by marauders. “Let the Cards Decide” is the story of a
woman whose future hangs on the outcome of a card game, and the adventures
continue with “Home is the Hunter,” the tale of a hardened gunfighter and the
little who changes his rough way of life.
Brimming with history, unforgettable characters, and the
pride of place that his listeners have come to expect, this first volume of The Collected Short Stories of Louis L’Amour
is a lasting tribute to one of the greatest short-story writers of all time.
