Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Stripped of all he values in life, Ronan Chantry takes up his prized Ferguson rifle and heads west -- into an unknown land and an uncertain future. For an educated man, Chantry is surprisingly tough. For a civilized man, he is unexpectedly dangerous. But even he can't know the true extent of his courage until he draws the fire of a man who will do anything -- kill anyone -- for the glitter of gold. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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.

I actually read The Ferguson Rifle for the first time years ago* and loved it, but I recently won the audiobook from Goodreads via their FirstReads program. This lined up nicely with a road trip my wife and I had to take, and so the adventure began anew....

I don't usually do audiobooks, as I have little time for them. I don't have copious amounts of driving built into my day (if this ever changes, I likely will start consuming larger quantities), I can't listen at work, and frankly given the choice I would rather actually read the book myself. All that said, this was an excellent production. The reader, Brian D'Arcy James, has a marvelous command of accents, be they British, Scottish or Irish, and this book allowed him to showcase them to great effect. My wife and I both loved it, so I am reasonably sure this book will please both Louis L'Amour fanatics and newcomers.

It is no real secret that given how many novels L'Amour wrote that were set in the old west, sometimes they tend to run together in your memory. This, however, is one of those especially excellent entries in his bibliography that stand out in your memory both from sheer uniqueness and from persistent quality. Unlike most of Louis L'Amour's bibliography, this book is not a "western" in the classical sense. It is set on America's frontier around the year 1800, meaning the northerly Great Plains-the Dakotas, Montana, that area. In another sense, however, this is very much a western. That was "the west" at the time being described, just as what we now think of as the "east coast" was at one point the western frontier of exploration. It is into this territory, newly bought from France through the Louisiana Purchase, that Ronan Chantry rides. His old life is dead, all he loves burned up in a tragic fire.

Enjoyable story and worth listening to. If you have a lot of his books why not pick this one up? The best two of his books IMHO are Flint and Reilly's Luck. But we own all of his books and most of his audio versions. Great author....

L'Amour is always a good read. You can't go wrong with him. I read to my husband as he has sight problems, but I was reading L'Amour long before I met him because I'll read anything I get my hands on. My brother bought all the Louis L'Amour he could find, and then I would read the books when he finished them. The Ferguson Rifle is based on some facts so that made it even more interesting.

The Ferguson Rifle is a really good book..It tells of the life and hardships the frontiersmen faced out on the lawless great plains.The main character,whose family was killed in a fire and is now leaving home, and a few trappers head west for the beaver rich mountains.They wind up on a wild goose chase when a woman they are protecting is being followed by a crazed man.

A must for Louis Lamour fans. This book keeps the reader spellbound. It teaches us the true value of friends that are committed to the well being of each other. The enemy was a strong adversary, mean and cunning. Good book.

My grandmother owned a small bookstore when I was growing up in the deep South and it was a Wonderland of stories for me. Having wise parents I was not permitted to read just anything but thankfully Louis L'Amour was on the exceptable list. I read many of his books and remember enjoying them all. That was back in the 60s and 70s so I don't remember any of the details but I do occasionally catch one of the movies. I found this new audio version of The Ferguson Rifle in the library and snagged it up to listen to on my two hour commute. I absolutely loved it. Not only is it a fun story but the voice acting was fantastic. It's only five disks which is considerably shorter then most audio books. Good for that long drive to visit family as long as the kids aren't too young. As most westerns someone's going to get stabbed, shot or killed. However nothing is graphic especially by today's standards.

Highly recommended
