Really good listen for western lovers

This is what lovers of westerns are looking for. Great writing, but one of the readers has a very shrill voice that will cause you to have to lower the volume.

So well read!

LL does it again. Although I've read a couple of these stories in the past, it was so entertaining and well read, I was completely engrossed. If you like the traditional LL story lines, you'll love this audiobook version. Definitely get these narrators; you'll thank yourself later. Enjoy!

Early L'amour:

This collection is clearly western but in the way of the author the story is of people and their issues. The feeling and relationships and thinking power makes these early stories great.

Brilliance is the standard with L'Amour

It is endlessly refreshing to have stories from writers such as L'Amour, and the uncomplicated presentation of morality versus corruption gives timelessness to L'Amour's work. L'Amour always gives the reader examples of strong men trying to do good things; this message is particularly resonant during a time of weak men such as our own.
