Overview

Collected for the first time in a single book are six of L’Amour’s finest Western stories. The texts have been restored according to how they first appeared in their initial publication in magazines.

Jim Sandifer knows he’ll lose his job at the B Bar Ranch as well as the girl he’s sweet on when he prevents a raid by some B Bar men on the Katrischen Spread in “The Turkeyfeather Riders.”

In “Four Card Draw,” Allen Ring wins a small ranch—until the town marshal shows up and tells Allen he can’t live there because a murder that had taken place there is still unsolved.

In “Home in the Valley,” Steve Mehan has driven a herd from Nevada to California in the dead of winter and has the money safely on deposit with Dake & Company. But upon his arrival in Sacramento, he learns that the bank has failed.

Also included in this collection are “Man Riding West,” “West Is Where the Heart Is,” and “Fork Your Own Bronco.” The stories in Glory Riders easily reveal why Louis L’Amour is the greatest Western writer of all time.

I really liked this story. It had intrigue and mystery. It also was funny and great.

The stories are classic, straightforward tales, rough and tumble. But all six stories total 109 pages....for 11 bucks?!?! When I saw six stories, I thought short stories, not 12 or 15 pages each.

If you are a fan of Louis L'Amour I need say no more. If this might be your first read of one of America's most prolific writers of Western fiction then you are in store for a real treat. Just when I thought there are no L'Amour tales I have not read up pops this collection containing only one story that I have read previously. The short stories in this collection are rich in western color, the characters are clear, the action moves at a gallop, and as with all of L'Amours stories there are clear "beginnings, middles, and ends". Usually with a book of this size I brew a cup of fragrant tea, find a good place to read near a window where the outdoors is just beyond the glass and read the entire book in one afternoon, not this time. The first story, "Man Riding West" was so good I wanted to savor the taste before moving on to the rest of L'Amour's tales so I spread my read out over the next two weeks. These are tales that will take you "...long ago", and most likely "...far away". Enjoy!
