Again another GREAT FAST MOVING NOVELLAS, that everyone will enjoy..
Louis L'Amour's western adventures are great. They draw you into the prairie drama taking place and you feel the heat of the bullet that just barely missed hitting you. What about the food they consume especially the peach cobblers, 🍎Apple pies and bear claws, aka doughnuts. How about those drowning rains beating you and your horse as you search for shelter. Yes, you feel, sense all of these, Oh yes, don't forget those waterless alkali basins and the overhead sun drying you out, until you find the next waterhole ten miles away..hopefully
This book has it all.. lots of non stop western excitement. Cowboys, Indians, good guys, bad guys, bank hold ups, murder, double crosses, dry gulching, lust for gold, cattle drives, rustling, desert survival skills and more. Lots of gunfighting, fist fighting and more.
About half the stories the central character was Texas ranger Chick Bowdrie. Against all odds Chick solves murders, bank holdups, double crosses and more. In some of the Chick Bowdrie stories he saves a pretty girl or her ranch but says he can't settle down and the range is where he must be. INMO kind of a lonely life.
L'Amour was spectacular with character build up, western scenery description and good plots. Each story for me was a delight to read. The master story teller makes you want to read more. No dull spots. Some of the stories were like mini mysteries plus a few with some spins and deception. Lots of exciting stories. Here is a great book to take with you when getting your oil changed in your car or a doctor or dentist visit. The stories are fast and easy to read and fun.
As I can get more used Louis L'Amour books on deep discount sales I am building a 3 shelf library part for my family. An excellent book for the family library or anyone liking great western fiction. 5 stars
