Deep in Indian country, Major Mark Devereaux and his men find a grisly scene: a wagon train savagely attacked, with no survivors. One of the wagons originally with the group is missing; in it is a fortune in gold and Devereaux’s daughter, Mary. The slaughter, Devereaux learns, was not the work of Indians but of a murderous outlaw band. With the stakes rising in a deadly game, the only wild card is Lieutenant Tenadore Brian, who is riding with the missing wagon—against orders. Devereaux knows Brian is a good soldier, but is he good enough to protect a saddlebag full of gold . . . and the life of his daughter? From the Paperback edition.

A WORD FROM LOUIS L’AMOUR “Almost forty years ago, when my fiction was being published exclusively in ‘pulp’ western magazines, I wrote several novel-length stories, which my editors called ‘magazine novels.’ In creating them, I became so involved with my characters that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared became collector’s items. Pleased as I was about how I brought the characters and their adventures to life in the pages of the magazines, I still wanted the reader to know more about my people and why they did what they did. So, over the years, I revised and expanded these magazine works into fuller-length novels that I published in paperback under other titles. “These particular early magazine versions of my books have long been a source of great speculation and curiosity among many of my readers, so much so of late, that I’m now pleased to collect three of them in book form for the first time. “I hope you enjoy them.” From the Paperback edition.

She considered him nothing more than a drifting ranch hand, but Matt was determined to prove her wrong. To do so, he’d have to solve a mystery that was at the center of the growing violence in Hattan’s Point–a secret that could make a man rich . . . or dead. Probably dead.

The author of 109 books which have collectively sold more than 200 million copies, Louis L'Amour is one of America's best-loved writers. His fictional accounts of life in the old west, full of colorful lore and homespun philosophy, have captured the imaginations of millions of devoted readers. Louis L'Amour is truly a publishing phenomenon. Since the publication of Robert L. Gale's first study of L'Amour in Twayne's United States Authors Series (1985), much new material has appeared, including 16 new books, five of them posthumous (L'Amour died in 1988). This revised edition covers the full range of L'Amour's work. The book begins with a biographical chapter on L'Amour's life, drawing on information that has only recently become available. Gale then considers L'Amour's vast output, calling attention to its artistic merits as well as its defects. The book concludes with a consideration of L'Amour's literary style and his personal philosophy. Louis L'Amour, Revised Edition is a sympathetic yet critical study of the most popular western writer of all time, and the only scholarly work about L'Amour currently available. It will be of interest to students of American literature and popular culture, and a must for all library collections.
