Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Unfortunately Mr. L'Amour died several years ago, otherwise I'd still be buying whatever he was writing! Great stories! Very seldom does he use off color dialog, and never any explicit sex scenes --- it's always left to your imagination. But his books are always full of great metaphors, such as: My horse headed back in such a hurry that you'd 'a thought he'd left somethin' at the hotel. Or, I've told folks that I'd sung before audiences of 3,000 --- I just didn't tell them I was talkin' about cows. I'd been hoping to find all the Sackett books together. I found this set on the Amazon listing and am very pleased with it. I haven't started to read them yet. I'm using them as a reward for myself. I have some projects that I am having trouble motivating myself to complete. When I complete each major profect, I will take time out to read a volume of Sackett stories. It is doubtful that any author could be as at home in the world re-created in his novels as Louis Dearborn L'Amour. Not only could he physically fill the boots of the rugged characters he wrote about, but he literally walked the land my characters walk. His personal experiences as well as his lifelong devotion to historical research combined to give Mr. L'Amour the unique knowledge and understanding of people, events, and the challenge of the American frontier that became the hallmarks of his popularity.
