    " I've always found Louis L'Amour's popularity bewildering. Thinking it due to my horsehit allergy, I gave this collection of his crime/sports stories a whirl. I remain bewildered; nothing but utterly undistnguished pulp fodder here. Perhaps America is insane. "

    " A great story teller. The only thing I didn't like was all the boxing stories in a row against the mob. Still good though, I really like the Private Eye Kip. I still recommend this as Louis L'Amour really new how to write a story. "

    " Read the first 9 stories. They were good, but seemed to have the same plot.Good guy beats bad guys and gets the girl. Maybe I will read the other 19 stories later. "

    " Lots of stories, generally dealing with the Pacific Islands. Approximate dates for the stories are 1930's through 1950's. I found this compilation not as good as some of his others. "

    " I have read most of Louis L'Amour books , I love western, and like almost all of his books.
    If you like Westerns you will love Louis L'Amour "
