Sorry for the blurry picture, but I haven‘t posted in a while. I‘m becoming more of a fan of Louis L‘Amour and enjoy his westerns. This one is about a young boy and girl who narrowly miss an Indian attack on their wagon trail/camp, and have to travel on their own to the fort where the boys father is. Meanwhile, his father is out looking for them. I recommend it if you want a simple western/adventure.

I never thought l'd like Western fiction. Well, l don't actually know whether l do, but definitely l like Louis L'Amour.
I like his lyrical decriptions, his rough but sensitive cowboys, his elusive clever lndians. I like his epic stories, his long silences, his vivid nature.
This is a simpler story, but still very enjoyable and with great characters.
He's a great author.

CaitZ Louis L'Amour is one of my favorite authors. I started collecting his books in high school and think I've got them all. I pull one out and read it every once in awhile. My favorite is Haunted Mesa. 6y
Bradleygirl And for a startlingly amazing epic of his, you can go full pre-medieval with The Walking Drum! 6y
JazzFeathers @CaitZ l've also read The Lonesome Gods, first novel l read of him. Loved it 😍 6y
JazzFeathers @Bradleygirl oh, l've read that one! Great story... though l tend to prefer his westerns 😊 6y
