A collection of two stories by beloved Western writer Louis L’Amour

In “The Sixth Shotgun,” Leo Carver has been sentenced to hang for holding up a stage, killing the driver and the guard, and stealing the gold they were transporting. He is convicted despite his protests of innocence, but questions soon arise over what really happened.

“The Rider of the Ruby Hills” is the story of Ross Haney, who rides into Ruby Hills country hoping to settle down. What he finds is an intense rivalry between the two big ranches and a rustler who is taking full advantage of the situation.

    " I thought I'd pretty much read all of L'Amour's books, but I found this at the airport. It had four early stories that hadn't been released before. The first two stories I'd rate a 2 and the last two stories I'd rate a 4, so I'm giving the overall book a 3. "

    " When I want to relax and have fun, I pick up a Louis L'Amour book. I am probably an easy mark for good Westerns. Although L'Amour's books are predictable and seem to merge together in theme, each is unique in its way and draws the reader on. Good and right always prevail. I enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 9/25/2012

    " A classic, fun story. Because of Louis L'Amours's knowledge of Western life, this was a good one to read with my husband (we listened to the audio book while working on a project). I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed a "cowboy" book, and look forward to reading a few more. "

    " I am a huge fan of Lamour, so there is no way I can give a critical review of one of his books as I am so biased. Some are better than others but none are bad, in my humble opinion. "

    " This collection of sort stories is superb. I have liked Louis L'Amour since I had to read some of his stories in college in Fargo, ND for a class on short story fiction. The prof picked L'Amour because L'Amour was born in Jamestown, ND only a few hours drive from Fargo. "
