In McQueen of the Tumbling K, Ward McQueen is foreman for Ruth Kermitt, owner of the Tumbling K Ranch. He finds traces of a man, apparently wounded, who has sought shelter in the hinterlands of the Tumbling K, but he is unable to locate him. When McQueen rides into town, he is shot down by gunmen and left for dead.

He finds traces of a man, apparently wounded, who has sought shelter in the hinterlands of the Tumbling K, but he is unable to locate him. When McQueen rides into town, he is shot down by gunmen and left for dead. But they made a critical mistake because McQueen is not dead--and he's looking to get even. In Big Medicine, old Billy Dunbar has discovered the best gold-bearing gravel he had found in a year, but now he is down flat on his face in a dry wash, hiding because a small band of Apaches has shown up. It will be just too bad for him if they catch sight of his burros or notice any of the prospect holes. He's going to have to figure out a pretty good strategy to get out of this one alive. In Dutchman's Flat, it all seemed a simple matter to the six men in the posse. A squatter named Lock gunned down Johnny Webb in the Bon Ton, shooting him in the back. Now, once they caught him, there wasn't going to be any trial. However, as the posse heads out into the desert, it becomes only too clear that Lock knows the desert better than they do, and he knows how to pick them off one by one.

    Dutchman’s Flat, fall 1948 was prob my favorite. The rhythmic themes of the posse tracking a man thru the desert, growing in knowiedge of him, and, slowly, starting to wonder at the mind of man he was and his innocence. He did what you’re supposed to do with criminals seeking to hurt you. He got them to see him as a human. An individual. Refraining from killing them. Showing them his own excelllence. And worthiness to the country (which had motivated their sense of vengeance for the lost one of Dutchman’s Flat, fall 1948 was prob my favorite.

And worthiness to the country (which had motivated their sense of vengeance for the lost one of their own.). Even led them by water by day. And gave them coffee and sugar at night. . And had them to breakfast with his wife. Saying they were friends. Then manfully met them. They turned away home. More to it. But I’m growing impressed by Zane grey the romantic, and Louis L’Amour (of love?)’s poetry. Both of their seeming psychological insight. But also their echo of a time that was listening to the last echoes of a time. I want to read that book that is the story of Zane grey’s first trip out west. The last of the plains men.

    It's not of the Sackett's, but was still a good listen (audiobook). I always enjoy how Louis L'Amour can write in a way that makes me feel like I'm actually there. It's always a pleasure reading (or listening) to one of his stories. It's not of the Sackett's, but was still a good listen (audiobook).

    This was the very first Louis L'Amour book I've read and I was more than impressed. They've actually been around all my life, as my Grandpa was an avid fan of Louis L'Amour's books. For some reason I always hesitated reading these Western themed books, now I'm sorry I waited so long! With great characters and enthralling storylines I will certainly be reading more of these great books. This was the very first Louis L'Amour book I've read and I was more than impressed.

    Fans of westerns will enjoy these three stories by L’Amour. These entertaining tales come complete with plot twists, adventure, and the confrontation of good and evil. No one quite tells a western tale like L’Amour, and even though you can count on the good guys winning, you will still be engrossed in the story.
