Excellent collection of short fiction. L’Amour was generally at his best with this type. ( )

As I have said elsewhere, I tent to prefer L'aMour's short stories to his novels. ( )

This is one of my favorite collections of L'Amour's short stories. There's a forward by the author, and notes prior to each story. This book includes tales of cattle rustling, homesteading, man-hunting, and even one of someone taking the name and reputation of a murdered man. Good reads. ( )
