Publisher's Summary

Here is an historic adventure of extraordinary power waiting to sweep you away to exotic lands as one of the most popular writers of our time conquers new storytelling worlds. Louis L'Amour has been best known for his ability to capture the spirit and drama of the authentic American West. Here, he guides listeners to an even more distant frontier - the enthralling lands of the 12th century.
At the center of The Walking Drum is Kerbouchard, one of L'Amour's greatest heroes. Warrior, lover, scholar, Kerbouchard is a daring seeker of knowledge and fortune bound on a journey of enormous challenge, danger, and revenge. Across the Europe, the Russian steppes and through the Byzantine wonder of Constantinople, gateway to Asia, Kerbouchard is thrust into the heart of the treacheries, passions, violence, and dazzling wonders of a magnificent time. From castle to slave gallery, from sword-racked battlefields to a princess's secret chamber, and ultimately, to the impregnable fortress of the Valley of Assassins, The Walking Drum is a powerful adventure of an ancient world you will find every bit as riveting as Louis L'Amour's stories of the American West.

Loved It!

I got this book for my husband to listen to on a long car trip but he could not wait until then! He said this book was the best Louis L'Amour book that he has "read" yet.

AKIN TO A VIDEO GAME

The story line seemed to repeat itself over and over again, with the hero finding a woman, rescuing a woman having an unconvincing battle and inbetween times learning the whole encyclopdia of life. It would suit a video game to a T. even in the way the fight scenes are discribed. I think no matter where you opened it to continue the story, you would not Have missed anything.

Captivating

A tantalising story of manhood, trials and the important things in life. Rich in history and diverse in geography.

On top of that, it was narrated appropriately, by John Curless. Bravo!
