For reading under the stars. The unimaginably prolific L'Amour-120 books still in print, 45 works filmed as movies or TV shows, over 270 million books sold worldwide-carries on from the grave. This second in a projected four-volume series (The Collected Stories of Louis L'Amour: The Frontier Stories, Volume One, 2003) reprints 30 more stories, this time featuring L'Amour's popular hero Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie (Bowdrie; Bowdrie's Law).Though never a fancy stylist, L'Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and often enough with a desert heatwave boiling up from a sunbaked paragraph. A master storyteller only whets the appetite for the next two volumes. (Kirkus Reviews)
