Louis L'Amour?

    Does anyone here enjoy Louis L'Amour books? For those who don't know who this is and clicked here anyway, LL wrote lots of novels. Many of them are Westerns, but some are more about Colonial times.

    My faves are The Sackett's series, following a family from England in the 1600's through Reconstruction America.

    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I think Louis L'Amour was a great writer, and the Sackett series was a great series - I always looked forward to the next installment.

    I also liked "The Walking Drum," and think that was one of the best books I've ever read. "The Lonesome G-ds" was good too.

    I'm something of a Louis L'Amour fan.
    Probably half the fiction I've read has been Louis', but I don't read much fiction.
    I'm not so much a fan of his westerns, actually.
    I do like the Sackett books, but more the stuff early in that family.

    I think my favourite is probably The Walking Drum. I'm continuously saddened that there was never a sequel :(

    I must have read that book at least a dozen times in high school-- I LOVE IT!!! It still bums me out that the sequel was never written/published, although we do have this tantalizing "what if" courtesy of the official L'Amour FAQ:

    I guess we'll never know... :sigh:

    I read a lot of L'Amour in my early teens. I read the whole Sackett series and maybe 10-15 of his other novels. My favorite Sackett, and the first one I read was "To the Far Blue Mountains." Of his other westerns, "Comstock Lode" and "Tucker" were my all time favorites. Another great thing about L'Amour paperbacks is the great cover art, and least in the early to mid '90s. I've noticed that a lot of books have new or different cover art now, which are ok, but different than what I'm used to. And as far as western films, one of my favorites is a L'Amour adaptation, "Conagher" starring Sam Elliot of course.
