This first-rate collection of short stories by the incomparable Louis L’Amour showcases the legendary writer at his very best: spinning a fascinating and wholly authentic set of unforgettable tales. In these extraordinary stories, we meet a man who is forced to defend himself by taking another’s life—and must pay for his actions in a most punishing manner; a young thrill-seeker who finally finds a place he can call home, and vows to stay there—regardless of the man who tries to stand in his way; and a drifter who honors a deathbed promise to a stranger by embarking on an unlikely mission of mercy.
Complete with revealing author’s notes, the stories in Law of the Desert Born are historically precise, and filled with L’Amour’s trademark humor and adventure. They are nothing less than modern classics of the American West, told by one of the most beloved storytellers of our time.
Our foremost storyteller of the authentic West, Louis L’Amour has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and women who settled the American frontier. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print around the world.

From Our Editors

Law of The Desert Born is a collection of Louis L'Amour's greatest frontier fiction. L'Amour himself selected all of the stories, and in this edition, writes an interesting introduction to each tale that includes personal anecdotes and historical notes. Fans of the wild, wild West will appreciate L'Amour's tough, gritty style of writing, which is as tough and gritty as the cowboys that tame the terrain in his fiction. L'Amour is one of the most popular stylists in the western genre and more than 260 million copies of his books are in print.
