Riassunto: These stories represent Louis L'Amour at his best--stirring adventure tales of the ageless Old West, as tough and gritty as the men who tames it. Each story is personally selected, with an introduction and special historical notes, by the author.
Meet men like Shad Marone, the gunfighter who killed in self-defense, but who is forced to run because he killed the wrong man--the sheriff's brother; Matt Sabre, as tough as the Texas trail he rides, on a mission of mercy to the wife of the man he gunned down; and Kim Sartain, a reckless young drifter who refuses to back down from a showdown with a vicious outlaw killer. Every story in this collection bear's Louis L'Amour's distinctive brand of unbridled action and unembellished authenticity--taking us into the white-hot deserts, stone-cold canyons, and rough-and-tumble towns of the world only he knows so well.

Dal retro di copertina: A PRIZED COLLECTION OF AMERICAN FICTION -- FROM AMERICA'S FAVORITE STORYTELLER
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.
