More About the Author

"I think of myself in the oral tradition--as a troubadour, a village tale-teller, the man in the shadows of a campfire. That's the way I'd like to be remembered--as a storyteller. A good storyteller."

It is doubtful that any author could be as at home in the world re-created in his novels as Louis Dearborn L'Amour. Not only could he physically fill the boots of the rugged characters he wrote about, but he literally "walked the land my characters walk." His personal experiences as well as his lifelong devotion to historical research combined to give Mr. L'Amour the unique knowledge and understanding of people, events, and the challenge of the American frontier that became the hallmarks of his popularity.

Of French-Irish descent, Mr. L'Amour could trace his own in North America back to the early 1600s and follow their steady progression westward, "always on the frontier." As a boy growing up in Jamestown, North Dakota, he absorbed all he could about his family's frontier heritage, including the story of his great-grandfather who was scalped by Sioux warriors.

Spurred by an eager curiosity and desire to broaden his horizons, Mr. L'Amour left home at the age of fifteen and enjoyed a wide variety of jobs, including seaman, lumberjack, elephant handler, skinner of dead cattle, and miner, and was an officer in the transportation corps during World War II. During his "yondering" days he also circled the world on a freighter, sailed a dhow on the Red Sea, was shipwrecked in the West Indies and stranded in the Mojave Desert. He won fifty-one of fifty-nine fights as a professional boxer and worked as a journalist and lecturer. He was a voracious reader and collector of rare books. His personal library contained 17,000 volumes.

Mr. L'Amour "wanted to write almost from the time I could talk." After developing a widespread following for his many frontiers and adventure stories written for fiction magazines, Mr. L'Amour published his first full length novel, Hondo, in the United States in 1953. Every one of his more than 120 books is in print; there are more than 300 million copies of his books in print worldwide, making him one of the bestselling authors in modern literary history. His books have been translated into twenty languages, and more than forty-five of his novels and stories have been made into feature films and television movies.

The recipient of many great honor and awards, in 1983 Mr. L'Amour became the first novelist to ever to be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by the United States Congress in honor of his life's work. In 1984 he was also awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Reagan.

Louis L'Amour died on June 10, 1988. His wife, Kathy, and their two children, Beau and Angelique, carry the L'Amour publishing tradition forward with new books written by the author during his lifetime to be published by Bantam.

Customer Reviews

This was another great Louis L'Amour western.
JerryJ
If you're just looking for some light reading with good characters and an interesting story, then this book is well worth picking up.
Nolan J. Hitchcock
If you haven't read any of his books and you enjoy reading westerns you'll enjoy this one as well as any of the other Sackett books.

This is a great story about a hit man who gets drygulched and temporarily loses his memory. It is great the way L'Amour writes about how the hit man goes about finding out who he was, why he was dry gulched and why people are out to kill him, who exactly Ruble Noon *was* and who he *is now* after losing his memory and waking up and gaining an entirely new perspective was just awesome. Oh, and be warned, from the first pages you're hooked. It's L'Amour's style to draw you right in from the opening page and then speed along the rest of the book.

This is the first Louis L'Amour book I ever read. I was a pre-teen at the time, and it sparked my interest in westerns. I've only read a few other western authors, and most have left me prefering good old Louis L'Amour.

This book, like most by L'Amour, is a quick read. I read it every few years, usually taking a few hours. It always leaves me wishing he had written a sequel to The Man Called Noon.

If you like L'Amour, you'll like The Man Called Noon. The amnesia of the protagonist presents an interesting twist, and gives Noon enough challenge to be worthy of writing about.

As I've grown older, I've questioned the premise, and the writing style is no longer fluid to me, but like junk food, it is still fun to indulge in at times, and never fails to bring me back to my youth.

Louis L'Amour is one of my favorite authors, and Mustang Man met my expectations. It all started with Nolan Sackett running for his life when he came across two stranded travlers. One was a beautiful lady named Sylvie who was no sooner rescued by Nolan than she tried to kill him. It turns out that she was meaner than most of the hard western cowboys that he was use to dealing with. Nolan soons meets another pretty girl named Penelope who has a sad story and needs his help. Little did he realize that helping Penelope would put him right back in conflict with Sylvie and her gang of outlaws. In typical Louis L'Amour fashion, he manages to bring the old west to vivid life with a tale of a good strong cowboy, two pretty girls, a lost treasure of gold, and more bad men than you can shake a stick at.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Many times in Louis L'Amour's novels and short stories characters are given the chance to start anew, to make a conscious choice. In THE MAN CALLED NOON this chance becomes the chief mystery of the book. The protagonist awakens from a sniper attack to find his memory gone. Fleeing to save his life, he finds conflicting evidence of who and what he was--or could be. Assisted by another outlaw, he takes on the name of Jonas and goes to an outlaw's hideout. The hideout is a once-legitimate ranch inherited by Fan Davidage. Jonas decides to help her out of her predicament. But it is not that simple. He discovers a hidden cabin of the hired killer, Ruble Noon, and the evidence points to Jonas. Further, he is haunted by the memory of being hired to kill four men and one woman. Does he return to his previous life, thereby saving Fan Davidage but losing her to the stigma of being a hired killer, or does he begin his life anew and risk being unable to save Fan? "Then make a decision to start over," she said. "No matter what you have been, you can always become something else." "Is it that simple? Is a man ruled by his own free will, or is he composite of all his experiences, his education and heredity? I may not know what I am, but my flesh and blood do know, and they react the way they have been conditioned to react. My conscious mind was born only a a few days ago, but the habit patterns built into my muscles have forgotten nothing." Jonas finds he cannot abandon Fan to the outlaws, nor put aside his abilities as a gunfighter. Further, there is a fortune in gold hidden somewhere on the ranch, and other enemies ally with the outlaws to find it. Somehow Jonas must save Fan and the ranch, recover the lost gold--and find a way to live with what he is.

Louis L'Amour at his best my parents have the entire Sackett seriees. My dad is 80 years old and was never taught to read so we take turns reading him the Sackett series each winter. He knows the characters by name and can tell you from his own experience about the country they move through. He loves the realism and description of each book.

What a delightfully lighthearted read. You cannot put it down. And, when you reach the end you say, "more, more, more". Have you every wanted to kick the butt of an author who left you hanging. L'Amour has done just that in this one. Although one gets the impression that Noon rides into the sun happily everafter, I want more details. For example, did he marry Fan? Did he return to El Paso, Texas or did he decide to go off into another direction? Did he continue being a gunslinger or can one ever change from such a background? The questions go on and on. L'Amour should read this review and quickly get started on a sequel. What do you think?

Not up to L'Amour standards; too many plot anomalies.

But, well written, as usual, and rich with local history and geographic detail.
