Summary

Louis L'Amour is now one of the most iconic Western writers of all time, but once upon a time he was Jim Mayo, a regular writer for the pulps. Some of the tales he wrote in those days stuck with him enough that he later revised and expanded them into novels. But there was a special magic to the originals, and after research and restoration, these stories appear here now in their original form.

In "The Trail to Peach Meadow Canon", Mike Bastian, taken in by the legendary outlaw Ben Curry as an orphaned child and raised to one day take over his empire of crime, finds that day has come. As he prepares for his first criminal job, a gold-train robbery, Mike must decide whether to follow the path laid out before him or to carve out a destiny of his own.

In the title story, Charles Rodney, shanghaied and forced into labor on a merchant vessel, eventually dies from repeated beatings - but not before deeding part of his ranch to Rafe Caradec, whom he hopes will protect his family.

One of the two stories were worth buying.

The first part was pretty good. The second was done by a different narrator, Lane was almost monotone. I felt like he totally ruined the story.

When a man wants to sleep, let him sleep.

Started out a little slow but really picked up the pace. Very nice story line. I really enjoyed this book and was worth the time.

Best Western writer of all time

Great stories typical of Louis L’Amour without all the foul language and smut more modern writers think they need to sell books. Nothing beats a good story.

Louis L'Amour. A true Cowboy legend

It is hard to explain how big a role Mr. L'Amour has played in my literary life. everywhere I went you could find an paperback in my back pocket.
Thanks Audible and the Narrators for bring the story alive.
