Here is a very special Louis L'Amour book, a book to be treasured by his many fans and by a whole new audience of readers, for Frontier is an eye-opening celebration of the American land, including 213 pages of text and colorful illustrations of the beautiful West.

“Frontier is a very special book for me.
For more than thirty years in more than two hundred novels and short stories, I have written about many aspects of the American frontier experience—from the courageous explorers and early settlers of the sixteenth century on through the succeeding generations of the builders and shapers who followed them across the continent. However, for a long time, I have wanted to temporarily leave behind the boundaries of fiction to share more directly with my readers some of what I have learned and observed about our great North American land during a lifetime of study and appreciation.
This land, which we hold in trust for future generations and which is ours to improve while we live, is a remarkable land. The landscape has enormous variety, which sometimes escapes visitors. In the twenty-five essays that follow I have tried to offer a few brief aspects of the history, geology, excitement, wonder, and overwhelming power of this land.”
—Louis L’Amour, from Chapter I
Our foremost storyteller of the American West, Louis L’Amour has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and woman who settled the frontier. There are more than three hundred million copies of his books in print around the world.
