    Talking Louis L'Amour

    Maybe Louis L'Amour ! I like to see his books here. I have not read all of his books, but I am trying.

    L'Amour is a great writer; he wrote from the heart. Tough and fair, good vs. evil, humility, independence, character. Everyone should taste his writing which, on the cover, looks like just a cowboy book. Cowboy books are cool anyways and L'Amour can tell a yarn.

    It's called "The Mountain Valley War". I have read it.

    thanks for mentioning i think i will try to get round to reading him
    They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
    Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
    They fell with their faces to the foe.

    They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

    I'll try to find some websites for him, other than this web site www.louislamour.com, so I can read about him...
    but really, why there's lots of cowboys style!?

    I've enjoyed every l'amour book ive read. right now im flying through kiowa trail.

    for that matter, ive enjoyed every western ive ever read.

    one of the questions that come from reading them is to what extent they were indeed representative of a particular time and place, as opposed to a romanticized version of it.
