No one describes the adventures of the lone cowboy better than Louis L'Amour, who portrays the human side of the Old West before the days of law and order. Here are eight stories by America's favorite Western author, with texts restored to the state of their initial publication in magazines.
In ''The Lion Hunter and the Lady,'' Cat Morgan is about to bag a live mountain lion with the help of old Long John Williams when they are interrupted by a lynch posse. They accuse Cat and Long John of stealing horses--and plan to hang them right there.
In ''Law of the Desert,'' Shad Marone is a lone gunman running from the law. He is being tracked by a man named Lopez, and after days in the desert, it looks like they'll both die of thirst.
In ''One Last Gun Notch,'' Morgan Clyde was driven off his ranch by a hired gunman and now finds himself being hired to do the same thing to homesteaders. The scenario has become just too familiar to Clyde, and now he finds he must make a decision.
In ''Trap of Gold,'' Wetherton has found a big vein of gold in rocks that are dangerously unstable. He could really use the money for his family, but should he chance trying to mine that gold?
The lone man out in ''Grub Line Rider'' is Kim Sartain, an easy-going drifter who refuses to be bullied by tough cattleman Jim Targ, who has challenged Sartain's right to ride across an unclaimed stretch of land.
In ''Trail to Pie Town,'' Dusty Barron rode fast out of town, leaving behind a man on the floor of a saloon. Maybe he could have explained himself if two other men hadn't gone for their guns. The dead man had relatives nearby, which means Dusty will be facing a clan war.
In ''Desert Death Song,'' Nat Bodine is given a choice: to die by hanging or to take his chances in the desert. But when a good woman believes in a man, he finds the will to survive.
In ''Keep Travellin', Rider,'' Tack Gentry has been away for a year when he returns to the familiar buildings of his uncle's ranch. But the ranch has a new owner, who tells Tack to make tracks. Tack, however, has other plans.
