Read full description of the books:
I love a good Louis L'Amour western. He's a good storyteller who creates interesting characters and places them in beautifully illustrated settings. L'Amour's ability to describe the time and place of his novels, and the small details about life in the old west, makes his stories come alive.
This book, however, is not a good Louis L'Amour western. Early in his career, L'Amour was commissioned to write his four Hopalong Cassidy stories after the success of the movies. He wrote the books under a pseudonym and they weren't released again under his name until after his death. I have a feeling he wouldn't have appreciated the re-release.
Since he had to keep to the movie image of the character, both the bad guy and the horse he borrows are more fully developed characters than Cassidy. Also, the hero does a lot of stupid stuff like shoot guns out of the bad guys hands and then send them off with stern warnings. (You'd never see the Sackett boys doing anything so dumb.) Also about two-thirds of the plot is devoted to tracking rustled cattle, which pales in comparison (to say the least) to some of his much more interesting stories. Mostly, the enjoyment I got out of this book was from sentimentality for the other, better westerns I've enjoyed.
I still recommend Louis L'Amour, but check out one of the books from his popular Sackett series or one of his classics like "Hondo."
