Publisher Description

A PRIZED COLLECTION OF AMERICAN FICTION—FROM AMERICA'S FAVORITE STORYTELLER This first-rate collection of short stories by the incomparable Louis L'Amour showcases the legendary writer at his very best: spinning a fascinating and wholly authentic set of unforgettable tales. In these extraordinary stories, we meet a man who is forced to defend himself by taking another's life—and must pay for his actions in a most punishing manner; a young thrill-seeker who finally finds a place he can call home, and vows to stay there—regardless of the man who tries to stand in his way; and a drifter who honors a deathbed promise to a stranger by embarking on an unlikely mission of mercy. Complete with revealing author's notes, the stories in "Law of the Desert Born "are historically precise, and filled with L'Amour's trademark humor and adventure. They are nothing less than modern classics of the American West, told by one of the most beloved storytellers of our time.

"From the Paperback edition."

Author Biography

LOUIS L'AMOUR (1908-1988) was born in Jamestown, North Dakota. He left school at 15 to travel the world. While in his thirties, he began writing novels about life on the Western frontier. His first big success, "Hondo," was made into a John Wayne movie. L'Amour wrote 100 books in all, which sold over 200 million copies worldwide, and several short stories.

Review

"This actually may be the story's ideal form, since the author's son Beau came to realize that the core of the tale was the tense relationship between [Marone] and Lopez. . . . The graphic novel version provides room to develop this theme. Yeates's black-and-white depiction of the rugged landscape and the hard-bitten characters is superb. The result is stunning and richly textured."--Publishers Weekly

"[An] interesting tale of range rivalries turned bloody . . . Fans of L'Amour's stories should enjoy this work, adults or teens."--Library Journal

"Readers are in for a real treat--with an amazing level of detail and ambience that breathes new life into Louis L'Amour's already stunning story."--Cowboys & Indians

"A masterpiece both in story and art that complements the mood."--It's All Comic to Me
