Overview

Here for the first time in one collection are original short stories by Louis L'Amour. Famed for his contributions to the Western genre, L'Amour's skills as a writer transcended merely one subject, as he displays in the wide range of settings, styles, and characters in this collection.

From Tibetan peasants battling Chinese soldiers in the Himalayas to a lone hunter stalking a killer Grizzly Bear in Alaska to a prizefighter struggling for survival against both his opponents in the ring and the mob outside of it, L'Amour is an expert at getting to the heart of a multitude of conflicts, a master at what drives a diverse group of heroes.

L'Amour displays his ease with a multitude of styles, from the jargon-heavy, hyper-kinetic language of the fast–talking boxing manager in Fighter's Fiasco, to the more deliberate, Marlowe-esque drawl of private detective Neil Shannon in The Vanished Blonde to the fluid prose and beautifully descriptive language used to make the landscape a character in The Quest for the Bear.
