Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The spate of previously uncollected L'Amour short stories that have surfaced recently reveal L'Amour's broad talent and ability to master every genre from mystery to sports to mainstream fiction. But when readers think of L'Amour, they still think westerns, from Hondo (1953) to the Sackett epics. This collection, the first in a multivolume set, focuses on the West ("the frontier stories"), and it is vintage L'Amour. "The Gift of Cochise" opens the collection with a Hondo-like tale of a good man going to great lengths to protect the wife of a man he was forced to kill. A nameless drifter didn't have to confront the rustlers who threatened to take over his town, but after all, he was "Duffy's Man," and when you hired on, you did the tough work if you accepted the pay. L'Amour wrote about the big themes--love, courage, loyalty, honor--but he grounded them firmly in the context of daily struggles in an unforgiving land. A fine start to what will become an essential collection. Wes Lukowsky

From the Inside Flap

With more than 120 titles still in print, Louis L'Amour is recognized the world over as one of the most prolific and popular American authors in history. Though he met with phenomenal success in every genre he tried, the form that put him on the map was the short story. Now this great writer - who "The Wall Street Journal recently compared with Jack London and Robert Louis Stevenson - will receive his due as a great storyteller. This volume kicks off a series that will, when complete, anthologize all of L'Amour's short fiction, volume by handsome volume.
Here, in Volume One, is a treasure-trove of 35 frontier tales for his millions of fans and for those who have yet to discover L'Amour's thrilling prose - and his vital role in capturing the spirit of the Old West for generations to come.
