    This is a hard to review book Much like any genre considered less than high tone lit, formula books are too often downgraded For anyone with an addiction to an author or genre, sci fi, romance, horror, etc it sof a need to have the stories satisfy than to deeply challenge and enlighten The L Amour shorts are deeper than they re given credit for They give elements of history to the writing, something we all should knowabout Yes, they are repetitive in pattern, much the same as t This is a hard to review book Much like any genre considered less than high tone lit, formula books are too often downgraded For anyone with an addiction to an author or genre, sci fi, romance, horror, etc it sof a need to have the stories satisfy than to deeply challenge and enlighten The L Amour shorts are deeper than they re given credit for They give elements of history to the writing, something we all should knowabout Yes, they are repetitive in pattern, much the same as theater, where characters are not so much real as symbolic This volume is all of western stories, probably his strongest settings Tho this volume lacks what I believe are the strongest, most suspenseful the Bowdrie shorts , these have a nice variability Does the good guy always win Yes Is there a pretty girl to be won Most of the time And yet, the stories give the libertarian vision of the days long past, when Libertarian self sufficiency was necessary We ve evolved from those times, our independence curbed, and society s concerns taking precedence, but reliving harder times long past when violence erupted, can be pleasurable The mystery aspects of the stories are diminished due to the lengths, but still add a measure of interest

    Classic Louis L Amour Each story starts with a bang, gallops quickly, and ends with an exciting if predictable ending Westerns are excellent at descriptions and L Amour s ability to handle the move from environmental descriptions to fighting seamlessly is remarkable Louis is famous for doing copious amounts of research and it shows Would highly recommend to any fans of Westerns as well as those into analyzing human nature

    I love the Louis L amour books I grew up reading them and they are a best friend that I always love to visit again The short stories are a blessing when time is limited and it s great to be able to finish a story in the little time I get to read I have read these so many times, that it s fun to find missing people or missed connections in the short stories.
