Louis L'Amour, one of America's best-loved and most authentic western writers, penned more than 125 novels in a thirty-year career. His heroes, many of whom appear in various volumes, had strong views about right and wrong, and they also had great respect for the environment and for the rights of the Native American. This is the first full-color companion to L'Amour, enriched with more than 100 specially researched illustrations that bring to life the detailed settings, authentic equipment, and strong moral characters that populate his historically accurate novels, which have been popular with audiences around the globe for more than 50 years.
