|Plot Summary of Night Over the Solomons|
|"Night Over the Solomons is a collection of short stories by Louis L'Amour. L'Amour usually deals with the American 'Wild West' but in this series, he gives the reader a glimpse of more modern cowboys, as it were. This collection focuses on the independent, brave, strong young heroes who fought for democracy during World War II. L'Amour draws from real-life characters to build fictional heroes who are willing to face danger wherever they are needed - from the South Seas to South America. Through these amazing characters, the reader can begin to glimpse the sacrifice and service that the real American heroes laid on the line."
