One of my favorite Louis L'Amour books, it is the quintessential Western. A brave and hunted man, a strong and intelligent woman, and a beautiful landscape. In my opinion, one of the best of its kind. Not War and Peace, but sometimes you just want a good story that checks all the boxes. ( )

My favorite L'Amour book ever. I think I've read it 4 times. When I was a kid it appealed to my sense of adventure, the smart woman, the mysterious man who is wise and silent. Now I enjoy it because it showcases the many different types of people in the world all around us. And yes because of the awesomness of the man called Flint.

Flint is not a masterpiece by any stretch, but it is an enjoyable read. Just some good old fashioned junk food for the mind. If you enjoy Westerns, give it a read. ( )
