Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read it pardner. A story written the way we imagined the Wild West. Though the characters and story-line are so-o-o stereotyped, it still is a fun read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from L'Amour's Best? Many claim that Flint is L'Anour's best novel. That's a bold claim and it has some merit. Flint is certainly one of his most popular novels. It tells the story of a gunman with cancer (before the Shootist) who wants only to die quietly. It is an excellent book though the ending was a bit of a letdown. All in all, I recommend it highly.
