Desert Death-Song: A Collection of Western Stories


Desert Death-Song: A Collection of Western Stories Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Desert Death-Song compiles some of Louis LAmours greatest stories, many of which have been hard to find in book form. Whether he was writing under his early pen name, Jim Mayo, or his own, LAmours stories are unforgettable, touching on rough and rugged American ideals and set in the untamable frontier of the Western United States.

Nearly a dozen stories are presented here that represent the best of LAmours yarn-spinning writing, a choice collection handpicked from the variety of pulp Western magazines in which the author first became known. The most popular author of Westerns the world has ever known, LAmour writes stories full of mavericks, outlaws, romantics, and heroes. His characters follow the unspoken laws and morals of the Wild West, and the pictures he paints are unrivaled in their authenticity. From gold prospectors to sheriffs, characters of LAmour tales will never be forgotten.


A collection of stories from the most famous Western author of all time!
