About This Book
This three-story collection includes:McNelly Knows a RangerFrom the day Chick Bowdrie rode up to Noah Whipple's ranch gravely wounded, Whipple had treated him with kindness—almost like a son. When Whipple is shot by a notorious gunfighter, Bowdrie swears vengeance. Joining McNelly's Texas Rangers, he vows to hunt down the killer along with his gang. But Chick Bowdrie does not realize just how vicious they are . . . or how ruthless they can be. A Job for a RangerThere were bullet holes in the bank window and blood on the hitching rail. Five bandits and ten thousand dollars had ridden out of town and no one at the Rancher's Rest saloon had seen anything but a distinctively colored horse belonging to a local. But Chick Bowdrie soon had hard evidence that he was dealing with savage killers. To clear the name of an innocent man, Bowdrie pursues the murderous gang of bank robbers and cattle rustlers.Desert Death SongPowder Basin—the rugged country at the edge of a dry, forbidding desert—holds more hiding places than most men could find. Nat Bodine knows most of them; holed up in the Basin hills by a posse of over a hundred men, he needs them more than ever before. Jim Morton knows that if anyone is going to escape this posse, it's Bodine, just as he knows that Bodine is the kind of man who wouldn't commit the crime of which he's accused.

    Desert Death-Song
    A Collection of Western Stories
    Desert Death-Song compiles some of Louis L’Amour’s 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, L’Amour’s 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 L’Amour’s 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, L’Amour 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 L’Amour tales will never be forgotten.

    The Man Called Noon

    The Man Called Noon
    In one swift moment, a fall wiped away his memory. All he knew for certain was that someone wanted him dead--and that he had better learn why. But everywhere he turned there seemed to be more questions--or people too willing to hide the truth behind a smoke screen of lies. He had only the name he had been told was his own, his mysterious skill with a gun, and a link to a half million dollars' worth of buried gold as evidence of his past life. Was the treasure his? Was he a thief? A killer? He didn't have the answers, but he needed them soon. Because what he still didn't know about himself, others did--and if he didn't unlock the secret of his past, he wasn't going to have much of a future.

    A Novel
    TO THE FAR BLUE MOUNTAINS   In To the Far Blue Mountains, Louis L’Amour weaves the unforgettable tale of a man who, after returning to his homeland, discovers that finding his way back to America may be impossible. Barnabas Sackett was leaving England to make his fortune in the New World. But as he settled his affairs, he learned that a royal warrant had been sworn out against him and that men were searching for him in every port. At issue were some rare gold coins Sackett had sold to finance his first trip to the Americas—coins believed to be part of a great treasure lost by King John years before. Believing that Sackett possesses the rest of the treasure, Queen Bess will stop at nothing to find him. If he’s caught, not only will his dream of a life in America be lost, but he will be brutally tortured and put to death on the gallows.
