Product Description

WHERE THE REAL FRONTIER BEGINS
 
A young cowpuncher stakes a claim that can only be sealed with fists and a .44 Colt. . . . A gunfighter, tired of violence, finds himself pushed down a trail of bloody revenge. . . . From purple sage to gambler’s gold, from a señorita’s tempting smile to a splash of blood in the dust, here are stories with a distinctive L’Amour twist. A quiet farmer defends his honor in a moment of panic and luck . . . only to find true courage on the run from the dead man’s brothers. A young drifter defends a lady’s honor . . . and finds himself the quarry of a hanging posse. An aging marshal with a reputation as a crack shot faces a stranger who knows his secret. With relentless suspense and unforgettable drama, Louis L’Amour once again paints a vivid portrait of our western heritage that will live forever.


From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis

An anthology of twelve previously unpublished stories of the Western frontier captures a world of rugged men and determined women who must overcome the hardships and obstacles of life in the West.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage L'Amour I waited a long time for this. 27 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have read most of the western fiction written by Louis L'Amour and found this collection of short stories intriguing. There is a diverse mixture of characters & scenes and you want to just finish a story as soon as you start it. I look forward to reading the other new collections of his works.

4.0 out of 5 stars West of Dodge covers all points of the compass 26 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read most of Louis L`Amours books West of Dodge is fine collection of short stories, in many ways better than some of the other short stories collections. These stories draw the reader into a world that no long exists one without the distractions of today's modern world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irresistible westerns by a master American storyteller. 29 Aug. 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
These recently discovered stories by the grand master of frontier fiction offer some of the most irresistible pleasure reading in any genre. L'Amour never wastes a syllable creating vivid characters, authentic settings, bull's eye plots, and timeless themes. Some readers might object to the now politically incorrect cowboys, guns, stagecoach robberies, and silver miners, but that's not doing justice to L'Amour's incontestable storytelling skills. Even if you're certain that you would never enjoy reading a western, give this book a try. You won't be disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lance Kilkenny Story 10 July 2000
By Steven A. Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a bit predictable, but still a very good audio dramatization. The characters were well cast, the audio was crisp and clear with great special effects and it played well in a car environment. Lance Kilkenny drifts into town (again) in bad need of a rest. But the town is anything but normal. Soon he finds himself mysteriously manoeuvred into a confrontation with the town marshal, but things are not as they seem! Well worth the purchase price. Run time: 1 hour. (From the Audio Rendition)

5.0 out of 5 stars West of Dodge hit's the mark 19 Nov. 2014
By Morris E. Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The gunfighter Lance Kilkenny was in need a a rest, both him and his weary horse. He drifted into Stillwell for some r&r. After eating supper in the local hotel he takes on a job at a local ranch as a puncher. The local sheriff is one that wants to keep Stillwell clean, and he doesn't like Kilkenny's kind. A turnaround leaves Kilkenny on the sheriff's side and a deputy sheriff to boot! Good audio production, nice reading in the car.
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting short stories 19 Jun. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
I liked the short stories, but choose 3 stars because it didn't really inspire nor were they memorable, but entertaining.
