Louis L'Amour Message Board


Val Trevellion posts on 9/10/2013 3:54:56 PM I just finished my review copy of the NEW Louis L'Amour Graphic Novel called "LAW OF THE DESERT BORN" and I gotta say it is amazing!! A re-imagining of a classic Louis L'Amour story that captured my attention from the first page. The stunning black and white images are the best I've ever seen in a graphic novel, EVER! The book is a large (9x12) hardcover and the paper is nicely textured and slightly off-white which really adds to the quality feel of the book. The story, a really twisty noir tale, is all Western with cattle rustling, gunfights, a sheriff's posse, and everything else that makes a Louis L'Amour book great. I found myself laughing out loud several times and got so absorbed in the characters and the story that I missed several meals! Synopsis (from the website): A land in the midst of the worst drought anyone can remember. Family histories run deep, but when rancher Tom Forrester has his access to the Pecos River cut off by the son of his old partner, he convinces his foreman, Shad Marone, to pay Jud Bowman back for the discourtesy. Yet what starts out as a simple act of thievery or petty revenge quickly spirals into a cycle of violence that no one can control. Now Marone is on the run, pursued by a sheriff’s posse in a deadly game of cat and mouse across a rugged desert landscape. Leading the chase is Jesus Lopez, a half-Mexican, half-Apache with a personal stake in bringing Shad to justice. Newly released from jail, trusted by no one, Lopez swears he is the only man who can track Marone down. That may be true. But who will live and who will die and what price will be paid in suffering is an open question. Fate and the Jornada del Muerte desert possess a harsh justice that is all their own.

J posts on 4/13/2008 11:02:06 PM I am going to be teaching a Business English course next year for sophomore and junior high school students. I would like to teach a Louis L'Amour book because I can teach anything I want and I love his novels. What suggestions do you have for which novel would mention business in it the most. I was thinking "The Iron Marshall," but welcome any and all suggestions. Which novels mention cattle ranching and the business side of things the most? Thanks,
