The Walking Drum
by Louis L’Amour
Dtb, 480 Pages
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Instead of stereotyping westerns here, Louis L’Amour does medieval Europe.
It was fun, but it got kind of tiring having the hero bash Europe, praise the Middle East, learn EVERYTHING in about 2 days, and get into a new kind of danger at the end of every chapter.
So it was a typical L’Amour 😀
man takes on the management of a ranch, kills all the badguys and marries the pretty girl.
Hanging Woman Creek
a lone cowpoke outlives rustlers and vigilantes to inherit a man’s stake and marry the man’s sister.
Down the Long Hills
2 children survive an Indian attack on their wagon train. Face the Elements, Indians and 2 outlaws as they try to survive while the boy’s father tracks them down.
