Louis L'Amour's short stories are the bedrock of his enduring popularity. It was with this quintessentially American form that he first found success as a writer, and the great themes that would infuse all of his work first surfaced in unforgettable tales like these - legends of honor and betrayal, greed and sacrifice, cowardice and courage. These stories bring us face-to-face with heroism in unexpected places: in the form of a single mother facing down an Apache war party; or a whiskey-soaked drunk who wakes to find he's the only hope for a town surrounded by marauders. They reveal the many faces of justice, from the fitting punishment a prospector left to die in the desert exacts on his betrayers, to the gauntlet of double and triple crosses four escaped convicts must run in a hunt for gold that will leave only one of them alive.
