A solid selection of short stories in this authorized L'Amour collection. I enjoyed the introductions to each story, which give the reader some background of topics touched upon within. Not every tale is of gunfights or range wars. One I especially liked was about the middle-aged grandfather trying to mine enough gold to save his widowed daughter's ranch, and outwit Apaches at the same time. The Tumbling K is featured in a couple of the stories, as is Kilkenny. ( )

As I noted elsewhere, I really prefer L'Amour's short stories to most of his novels. In this collection, I particularly like "West of the Tularosas" ( )

Dedication
First words
Thr dust of Dutchman's Flat had settled in a gray film upon their faces, and Neill could see the streaks made by the sweat on their cheeks and brows and knew his own must be the same.

Disambiguation notice
There is a short story and a collection of the same name; unfortunately they have been combined and it is very difficult to distinguish which editions are which.
