Early in Louis L'Amour's career, he wrote a number of novel-length stories for "pulp" western magazines. "I lived with my characters so closely that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared went out of print," he said. "I wanted to tell the reader more about my people and why they did what they did." So he revised and expanded these magazine works to be published again as full-length novels. Here is one of these early creations that have long been a source of great speculation and curiosity among his fans.
In Riders of the Dawn, a young gunslinger is changed for the better by a meeting with a beautiful woman. A classic range-war western, this novel features that powerful, romantic, strangely compelling vision of the American West for which L'Amour's fiction is known. In the author's words: "It was a land where nothing was small, nothing was simple. Everything, the lives of men and the stories they told, ran to extremes."

Boy! That was a fantastic story. Louis L'Amour
Yes. I think I get more out of it with the audio version.
The big fist fight I guess was the best.
He is good at telling a story, and made it interesting that held my attention.
No I had to brake it down to three sittings.
Louis L'Amour's books are always good to read or to hear being read. I have read most of his stories, a lot of them when I was in Korea in the Army. We sure miss you Louis L'Amour.
