Book

Kiowa Trail (The Louis L'amour Legacy Editions) (2006)

This was my first foray into the western genre, and I definitely know it won't be my last. I've been wanting to try it out for a while now, and after one of my customers recommended "just picking any ole one up," that's exactly what I did. I went to the library and pulled the first Louis L'Amour ...

Book

The Lonesome Gods: A Novel (1984)

I read The Lonesome Gods because it was recommended in A Thomas Jefferson Education as one of five books to start one’s classic library. The reviews claimed it was Louis L’Amour’s biggest and most important historical novel. That may be true, but it didn’t measure up to the level of classic lit...

Book

Callaghen (1998)

Poor Sergeant Callaghen just can't win. At 34 he's got hardly any money to his name and is stuck in the army, stationed in the California desert to protect travelers from Indians, apparently before the Gold Rush really got started, and when he gets his discharge papers he has no idea what he'll d...

Callaghen (1998) by Louis L'Amour
Book

Over on the Dry Side: a nOVEL (1985)

This was a typical Louis L'amour book. Western, rough country, bad men vs one good man, tormented past that is never quite revealed, beautiful girl, a homestead full of trials and triumph. The only thing different about this particular story then the others I have divulged in was the use of a ...

Over on the Dry Side: a nOVEL (1985) by Louis L'Amour
Book

Kid Rodelo: A Novel (2007)

Rodelo is relieved to be released from prison – and angry that he had to spend time there in the first place. Even harder for him to handle is the fact that, when he was first accused of the crime, none of his so-called friends had stood for his character. They’d all faded away – deserted him. Bu...

Kid Rodelo: A Novel (2007) by Louis L'Amour
Book

The Iron Marshal (1993)

I'd quit reading L'Amour for a while, after few less-than-impressive books, but I tried again recently and the last two I've read were back up to standard. The Iron Marshal is interesting because of its first few chapters which develop the hero's backstory. Instead of the usual seasoned frontiers...

Book

Galloway (1970)

Flagan Sackett is running for his life and the outlook is not good. A few minutes ago, he was the captive of Apache Indians but thanks to a diversion provided by his brother Galloway, he has a chance. Buck naked and hand-bound, all he can do is run.Galloway and Flagan were searching for a good ...

Book

FAIR BLOWS THE WIND: A Novel (1981)

Date Read: 12-September-2010I read this book – Fair Blows the Wind” by Louis L’Amour - for a book discussion group. I liked the story and the fact that it was not a western novel typically done by L’Amour but one that takes place mostly in Europe before the population of North America. A few th...

FAIR BLOWS THE WIND: A Novel (1981) by Louis L'Amour
Book

The Daybreakers (1984)

This is a great book, and L’Amour is someone you should read if you’ve not done so. Long before he became pretty much THE guy for “Westerns,” he was a poet and a world traveler. He read pretty much everything and knew a lot about the world, and he honestly has a lot to teach to the modern world...

The Daybreakers (1984) by Louis L'Amour
Book

The Broken Gun (1984)

I tried to like this book, but I just didn't. I don't know if it's a personal issue - I'm not particularly a fan of Westerns so I am not well read in the genre. Or honestly it could just be a weak book. I'm leaning more towards the latter.Broken Gun tells the story of writer/historian/Korean War ...

The Broken Gun (1984) by Louis L'Amour
Book

Treasure Mountain (1984)

My favorite story so far, I think. Some of that is time spent in my favorite city (New Orleans)—a good quarter of the book is Tell and Orrin bumbling about in the French Quarter. Some of it is this being the first one I actually remember bits of from my young reading days. But most of it is a gre...

Treasure Mountain (1984) by Louis L'Amour
Book

Lonely on the Mountain (1984)

This book I found enjoyable until the very end. The description of the cattle drive, the problems along the way, Orrin's own journey to met up with the cattle drive, all satisfied the reader in me. But the last chapter after Shorty is killed made me feel as if everyone else knew the secret exce...

Bowdrie's Law (1984)

I am a Louis L'Amour completest and this is my 76th L'Amour book that I have read so far. Obviously I am a fan so please take that into consideration as you consider my review.This a collection of 10 short stories all featuring the Texas Ranger character, Chick Bowdrie. All of these stories, al...

Book

Showdown At Yellow Butte (1997)

I have read all of Louis L'Amour's books at least once, and some of them I have read several times. They have become, for me, a vacation. After weeks and months of reading things for work--or even pleasure--there's just nothing like settling in for a couple evenings of a Louis L'Amour story. T...

Showdown At Yellow Butte (1997) by Louis L'Amour
Book

Ride the River (1983)

I'll admit to having put off picking up this one, even though so far the Sackett books have pretty much been a sausage fest (for all that each one of them is about the winning of a wife as awesome as each novel's hero deserves), partly because I wasn't sure how well Louis L'Amour could really do ...

Radigan (1984) by Louis L'Amour
Book

The Mountain Valley War (1997)

Lots of great frontier philosophy in this one. The backstory is highly developed, with lots of interesting character studies. And of course the Kilkenny-Nita romance is one of L'Amour's most compelling, at least for me.In addition to the great gunfights you'd expect from Kilkenny, The Mountain Va...

Book

Comstock Lode (1982)

I picked up “Comstock Lode” at an airport bookstore for a flight home from, appropriately, Nevada. Coming in at about 600 pages, the book is two to three times the size of a typical L’Amour western, which is how I knew I had never read it before. Back in my college years, I plowed through a stack...

Book

The Rider of Lost Creek (1982)

I used to read L'Amour whenever we went to the beach for Easter. He was light, fast and whenever one of his heroes was trapped in the desert heat without water being pursued by Apaches, I felt better able to empathize while sitting in a deck chair under the hot Alabama sun, having to stretch alm...

Monument Rock (1999)

This is a book consisting of mainly short stories. All typical Louis L'Amour western, cowboy story lines. Ladies, if you never read this author, do not be put off. Mr. L'Amour is such an excellent story writer that both men and women will find them interesting. There is just enough of a hint of r...

Something just doesn’t seem right to Milo Talon. He’s used to being hired to do odd jobs by rich men. But this particular case is unusual. Jefferson Henry wants Milo to hunt down his granddaughter, Nancy Henry, who’s been missing for over fifteen years. That doesn’t sound criminal, but why didn’t...

Yondering (1989)

Jan. 26, 2012Best known for his Westerns, Louis L'Amour actually wrote stories and novels set in a variety of times and places. Like his Westerns, though, all of these tend to feature strong heroes who are macho but moral (and he well understood that these aren't contradictory qualities!), and w...

Yondering (1989) by Louis L'Amour
Book

High Lonesome (1962)

Cognitive dissonance. There's so much I liked about this book. Sure, the whole bank robber with an old grudge to be settled plot is pretty cliched and the characters aren't particularly well rounded, but the prose is masterfully written and so much of the ethos of manhood and outlaw is articulate...

High Lonesome (1962) by Louis L'Amour
Book

The Burning Hills (1985)

I'm a Louis L'Amour fan. Despite the fact that there's very little dialogue, the story of Trace Jordan comes alive.

Book

The Riders of High Rock (1994)

I love a good Louis L'Amour western. He's a good storyteller who creates interesting characters and places them in beautifully illustrated settings. L'Amour's ability to describe the time and place of his novels, and the small details about life in the old west, makes his stories come alive.This ...

The First Fast Draw (1985)

The boom reverberated off the canyon walls and the screams and the smoke and the noise—I’m ashamed to say I fainted.

Westward the Tide (1984)

This is one of L'Amour's better works. Decent plot. Minimal macho akwardness in his language. The story follows one of his typically well-cultured killer types, who slightly tips the scales towards good, joining a group of prospectors looking for gold in Big Sky country. Turns out something i...

To the Far Blue Mountains (1977)

My expectations were high when I picked up my first L'Amour novel. Higher than they ought to have been, it turns out, as I was fairly disappointed. First, the mitigating factors: I listened to this as an audio book. I find that I tend to rate some audio books lower than I might have had I read ...

This is a marvelous collection of western short stories by the immortal Louis L'Amour.

It begins with the main character kn...

I like reading Louis L'Amour books because you will not find a more compact, precisely-written story. No words are wasted and the story flows quickly from one chapter to the next. Yes, L'Amour was formulaic. No, there are rarely any surprises in his books. They are stories about challenges, e...

Milo Talon rides into Texas and hires as a ranch hand for Stirrup-Iron, and finds himself caught in the middle of cattle rustling and gunfighters. I found Milo's life was similar to Tell Sackett who was also a drifter. But Milo put more stock in education like his father (a Talon), even though ...

Mustang Man (1966)

We met Nolan Sackett in Mojave Crossing and it was pretty clear that there was more to him than met the eye. This book merely proves it. I can't help liking Nolan. He's a big galoot, better than he thinks he is, and fundamentally uncertain of his place in the world. Naturally, my heart went out t...

To Tame a Land (2007)

This was given to me as a gift, and I wanted to give the person that gave it to me feedback so I went ahead and finished it in one sitting immediately after receiving it. I was a bit skeptical, I love the western setting but this guy wrote like 500 of these books and they're all kind of short so ...

As I understand it, this is to be the penultimate collection, with one more to follow. The included stories are clearly less pol...

Sitka (2001)

Sitka is one of three Louis L'Amour books published in 1957 and the 12th book of his I've read in my quest to read them all them by year of publication.Sitka is a bit different from the typical L'Amour book that I've read so far. Up until now most of L'Amour's stories have taken place in the US S...

Riders of the Dawn (2006)

This is a serial novel. It was originally written as a serial for a magazine, which means that it was published in parts and each issue of the magazine would publish a part. Serial novels (published like this were popular in the 1940's and 50's). These novels were full of action and not character...
