Howdy, I have every book Louis wrote: enjoy them all. I need your help finding the guy that offerred a Louis L'Amour CD---showing pictures of the locations in the stories. He also offerred a map of the locations. I sent him $16.95 for that CD and map---but have not heard another word from him. I have lost all info about that seller. Can someone help me to connect with him? Or have I just been a victim of a scam? Many thanks, DONN SHEILL

I have been a Louis Lamour fan ever since I read one of his western stories 8 years ago. I never read much until I started reading his stories. I can't read them enough. My all time favorite is Radigan. It strikes me as one of his finest Westerns!

I think I have read most his books and have loved everyone of them. Many of them I have read numerous times and still enjoy them. I am trying to collect all of his books.

I have always loved reading and I have always loved westerns but the first time I read one of Mr. L'Amour's books I was taken away from this time and put back to a time when most of our country was still wild and rugged. Mr. L'Amour is one of the best authors I have ever read and I plan on reading him forever.

I cried the day I heard Louis L'Amour had died. His writings had brought so many hours of pleasure. When I have spare change I hit the used book shops looking for the older paperbacks because I love the cover art as much as I do the stories! I read my collection over & over; I never tire of the stories. My dad raised me watching westerns & then introduced me to Louis L'Amour. I love that the enjoyment of L'Amour books is something special dad & I share. Tom Selleck & Sam Elliot will always be stuck in my head as the ones to act in a Louis L'Amour western. Also, Katherine Ross-she is my idea of a pioneer gal! I have loved watching the movies & listening to audio tapes. When my daughter was young & the trips we took always included plugging in a Louis L'Amour tape; we didn't ride down the highway but rode the range with Bowdrie & others. I miss you, Louis L'Amour; alot of the writers today think they have to put in sexual content & foul language to sell a story; even alot of the cover art done now days on some of the westerns is offensive to me. Thank you for this site to remember a special man-one of the best writers there was. One to ride the river with.

Louis L'Amour is the best writer ever. Escelent web site. I have been reading his books since I was 14, I have hed all his books in paper back for several years. The most exciting book I have ever read is The Man Called Noon, the only book I have ever started reading and couldn't put down until I finished. Thanks for keeping up and sharing his work with us. I sure would have liked to met him.

I have the entire Louis L'Amour collection of books in hardbound and have read them over and over. I was also lucky enough to meet Mr. L'Amour once and he was kind enough to autograph my copy of Silver Canyon. My meeting and talking with him was one of the greatest experiences of my life. A truely great and charasmatic person who is sorely missed.

Hello form the UK, my dad got me reading Louis L'amour books years ago, but the trouble was to get new books we had to wait till someone visited the USA on vacation to get us a new supply, until I discovered the website 2 years ago and we havent looked back since THE BEST READ EVER!! My only wish would be to see more books made into films particuly Last of the Breed made into a film.

I started reading Louis L'Amour stories when I was overseas in the early '60s, and have been an avid fan ever since. I have read all of his published works at least once (some seversl times) and never tire of his writing. It pains me though when I see a book review touting "written like Louis L'Amour" and finding blatant sex and crude language in those books, not at all "like" Louis L'Amour. I enjoy reading other authors as well, but Louis is #1 for me and will remain that way.

As I read and reread his books, I can picture the whole thing just like I was there as a bystander. My own family homesteaded and went through a lot of these same hardships. Thank you so much!

I started reading Louis L'amour in 1984, when I was 16. My first L'amour novel was "The Broken Gun". This was a period of my life, as it is in every young man's live, I suppose, when I was quite malleable and impressionable, and I have always thought that the example set by L'amour's heroes helped set me and keep me on the right path. I owe Mr. L'amour a lot.

At one point, I had aquired every book written by Mr. Lamour. Unfortunatly my whole collection was stolen from me, and being on a very limited income, I could never replace this collection, but the hours and hours of pleasure I got from these books will always be a cherished memory. There will never be another Louis Lamour. He was, without a doubt the very best. Although I never knew him personally, I cried at his passing as though he were family. His talent is uncomparable .

The stories and characters are GREAT! I admire Louis and his love of learning and reading and his undaunted spirit. I am reading my way through all of the works that Louis wrote and am currently working on the Sackett series. Would he could have lived long enough to add to the Sackett series. Thanks

My love of reading was a gift from my mother, one that was firmly established even prior to my entering first grade. I'd often be 'found' hiding between the wall and our sofa, reading in earnest. My mother died of colon cancer which spread, but had time to ask her children whether there was something special from her possessions that we wanted before she met her Maker...her words to me were "I already know you want my Louis L'Amour collection, but do you want anything else special?" I had read all of the books L'Amour had published at that time, and a more cherished possession she could'n have given me. Since that time, I have added to the collection from those published after my mother's and L'Amour's death. Topics are varied, but all of these books are ones that can be read over and over, and over; I never tire and never have outgrown the excitement and suspense when I read a book from my collection. Keep printing anything you find in the attic or elsewhere!

I've been reading LL for years. I would love if Tom Selleck made "Guns of the Timberlands". Watching Selleck and Sam Elliot again would be fun. A Kilkenny movie is a must see. How about Grant Show as Kilkenny and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Nita. Who would make a good Jaime Brigo and Cain Brockman?

I really can't remember how many nights I've gotten too little sleep because of the great writing by Louis L'Amour. I'm in the Navy and after a long day on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Kittyhawk, getting a shower and a few hours of reading from Mr. L'Amour's collection takes me off the ship and back out west. My favorites are The Lonesome Gods, and The Californios. Much like Mr. L'Amour, I too have walked alot of the areas of which he writes. I'm twenty seven years old and have been reading his books for ten years now. I want to say thank you Mr. L'Amour for all the great stories.

I have been reading Louis L'Amour novels since I was just a kid. I don't read much, but I have never picked up a L'Amour book that I didn't enjoy. I bought "Beyond the Great Snow Mountains" when it hit the shelves back in 1999, and I am just now getting around to reading it. I can't believe I didn't read this before, the short-stories make me thirst for more material. Louis left quite a legacy. I know my children will read his books as well, because they are great material for the whole family.

I have read every book that Mr. lamour has written. My son was not interested in reading when he was in school. The teachers asked me if there was anything he was interested in? I said he liked to read Louis Lamour books. She said to let him read all he wanted and he could do his book reports on them. His reading level improved 85%. One thing about Mr. Lamours Books, when they put on a pot of coffee, you can smell it cooking. My whole family loves his books. Wish we had more.

THEY WERE EXCITING, REFRESHING AND MANY OF HIS THOUGHTS INSPIRIED ME IN MY PERSONAL POETIC ENDEAVORS...(HIGHLITED BY HIS THOUGHTS OF SONS FROM THE BOOK "HONDO"!) I ENJOYED HIS WORKS AND PRAISE GOD FOR HIS ABILITY.

Early last year I had to rest my heart. I found that if I did nothing but read I coasted along with a story, and some energy went into reserve-strength each day. I borrowed my brother's Louie L'Amour paperbacks a sachel full at a time till all were read, and some twice or more. I studied his writing technique compared to Zane Grey's and found it similar but greatly condensed in word content. That's the secret! Today is a society demanding instant answers! There is no patience for reading a lengthy description of Zane Grey's day when we have a condensed Louis L'Amour of the same quality or better. I am 80. Zane Grey's description of scenry was the best when I was young. Now Louie is just as good only 75% fewer words! I enjoy his one-evening stories!

I don't have any Louis L'Amour books of my own, but I am going to use my birthday money to buy the complete HARDBACK Sackett series. The Sackett series are my favorite books of all time. Once again I would like to thank Louis L'Amour for his inginuity and creativity to write great Literature. Thank you. Sincerly, Brandon C. Broden

i love western movies, and when i saw man called noon , catlow , hondo i found that these stories had such an effect as if we are lost in time and gone back to those days of the old west and it is all made possible by only one man "LOUIS L'AMOUR-thanks to the hardwork , it is a lovely sight.

Louis Lamour was the greatest writer. I havce read and re-read most of his books. I love the Sacketts. When I read one of his books it is like I am there, seeing what they see, feeling their thoughts. His characters, especially all of the Sacketts, are like real people, not just storybook characters. It is just too bad he couldn't have lived forever, to keep on with his great writing. The world lost a great storyteller when Mr. Lamour died. I feel like his Sackett family and Talon family, especially are still living, growing, and carrying on their great sagas to this day. They all had so many more adventures to live. I miss them and mourn their passing as well as the passing of their creator. In some of his books, on the biography page at the end, a mention was made about a western town Louis Lamour was recreating, called Shalako. Was this town ever finished, and if so, is it a tourist destination as intended? I would really like to know about this. Rest in peace Louis Lamour and keep up the storytelling in the great beyond.

I've always wanted to be a cowboy but was confined to city living. I tell my friends I was born about 100 years too late. Louis' books and stories help me understand, enjoy, and appreciate the period I would have loved to be a part of.

The first Louis L'Amour book I ever read, "Last Of The Breed", grabbed my soul from deep inside. My thoughts were, that this man puts you right there in the middle of all the action along side the characters he writes about. Mr. L'Amour was truly gifted with his ability to write so well and so real. Because of this, I believe he will live on forever through all the stories he poured his heart into as he wrote. Every time we pick up one of his books, we can expect to be taken back in time with his characters to a place we could only dream of going when we were kids, young and old. God Bless.

Hello, I just wanted to say the first L'amour stories i have read are from the short stories collection. All i can say is one word, ADDICTING. I have always heard of you , obviously, but didnt look in to your work until my grandfather passed away this last December. Your books were all he loved to read and while cleaning up the reception after the funeral I saw that one of his family members had left him the collected short stories hardback. Well I thumbed through it a bit then decided it may be something I would enjoy also. I bought my self a copy and started in. I think I enjoy it so much because not only are the great stories but i feel a little closer to my grandfather again. He was a cowboy all his life, living up on the out skirts of Red Bluff Ca. I guess that bloodline is showing up because I enjoy these stories so much. Anyway, you have one more devoted reader. Its funny because I always remember my Grandpa relaxing with a book,,,usually yours,, when he was wasnt gardening or tending to his animals. I find my wife laughing at me doing the same. thanks so much, A Lockie

A friend of mine introduced me to Mr.Louis L'Amour's books quite a while ago and I fell in love with them. He had the complete collection and I had asked him if ever he was going to dispose of them to let me know; to make it short he gave the collection to his brother & forgot to tell me. Ever since I have been trying to get my own and I just completed the novels collection as well as the Sackett. Thank you very much for giving such reading pleasures. Georges.

I started being an avid western reader at the age of about 10 years old. I found Louis Lamour's books a couple of years later however as I bought all of my books at yard and garage sales which never seemed to have any of his books at their sale. After reading several of his novels I believe I discovered wht reason for this: I read his novels over and over again thus I'm not willing to part with them unless they are paperbacks that are so tattered as to be useless. I have found the answer to this in buying the leatherbound editions and now own 60 of them. I am trying to find out how to purchase the remaining 61 that I don't now have.

Among countless other things, Louis L'Amour and his books have inspired me to try my own hand at writing. Wether I will ever be published or see a script come to life on the big screen remains to be seen. Subject matter is of course the western frontier. The story ideas for me are plentiful. If I could only get them down on paper I've no doubt they would be succesful. Perhaps some day readers will see in my work, a little of what they did in his. That would be something to be very proud of. Since Dances With Wolves no western has enjoyd, or really deserved to have, such great popularity. Many with other wise little or no interest in the era flocked to experience it. Since then the tales have been mostly ho hum and/or the way they were done was not up to par. So much of Louis's previusly undone material would make great movies. There are always ways to make it happen. They need to be found!

L'AMOUR IN 73 OR 74 WHILE HE WAS VISITING NORFOLK AND APPEARED ON A LOCAL TALK SHOW. WE TALKED FOR ABOUT AN HOUR OFF STAGE. I REMEMBER HE STATED THAT HE THOUGHT THERE WAS A TRAIL THROUGH THE ROCKIES FROM NEW MEXICO TO CANADA AND THAT HE HAD TRAVELED PART OF THAT TRAIL. I DO NOT HAVE THE WORDS TO DESCRIBE AND PRAISE THIS TRULY GREAT MAN. I KNOW HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN ARE VERY PROUD TO CALL HIM HUSBAND AND FATHER. A GREAT ADMIRER.

Men learn to be men in many ways. Through examples and experiences. Through successes and failures. Laughter and tears. A part of my learning was gleaned from Louie's books. I learned to seek the best way in all things. To be honest and true to my word. I have much success in my life and though I cannot lay it all at Louie's feet, some great part of my ability to dream of a place to be and then find a way to get there is planted in soil that he tilled. I wish I could have met him...and thanked him. Sincerely MP P.S. and I have enjoyed every word, most of them more than once.

I read my first Louis L'amour novel at about 12/13 years of age (it belonged to my dad) and have since then read as many of them as i can get ahold of. I could read the same one over countless times as it mesmerizes the reader with actual descriptions of the past and country the story takes place in. I have alot of copies that my dad and I share as we are both L'amour readers. Most of the books we have just seemed to show up somehow and the first place I look at garage sales or flea markets are the book sections. Extrordinary storyteller and definitely a man with a great deal of imagination and sense of the past to be able to capture a readers interest to write stories the way he did.

If there is anything to re-incarnation, I must have been a cowboy in another life. I loved Westerns from childhood. My heroes were John Wayne,Wild Bill Elliott, Lash Larue, the Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, and many, many others. I have literally read the covers off some of Mr. L'Amour's books. They are like old friends: even though I know the end, it is always a thrill to read them again. When John Wayne and Louis L'Amour died, I felt like I had lost two dear friends. When God created Louis L'Amour, He truly broke the mold. There will never be another like him. I have read works from authors described as "Like Louis L'Amour", but have always been disappointed. Thank you for keeping his memory alive.

They are what I call clean reading, he don't have to us all the bad words that some people think that they have got use to make a book sell. Thank You again for your great books.

I was raised to respectour past and the land and the poeple who bioult this great land. I am 52 years old and my husband and I are building our own farm/ranch on 20 acres in no. central washington in the old ways, with truth, honesty, and christen values, which seem to be crumbling in the usa. We are trying to instill something in our children and grandchildren that is so lacking in life today. that is why I love reading loius's stories again and again, as they instill these values. and they are G rated!!! So, I don't mind if the grandkids pick them up. and they are so entertaining.

Over the years I have collected most of LL's paperbacks..,maybe all? I also have several hard back copies. I have enjoyed them very much. In todays hectic, fast paced world it is always good to slow down to "trail speed" with one of LL's stories. He always make me wonder if I didn't miss a lot about life by being born to late? The most enjoyable thing I have done lately, concerning his novels, has been passing them on to my son. Hopefully my grandson of two years will also become a LL's fan. Nice web site.

At one time I owned every book he wrote and then sold my collection to raise funds for a youth group trip. I am now in the process of rebuilding my collection. He was an awesome writer!

As a reader of the stories written by Mr L'Amour for over 35 years and still have each and every book, I can honestly say I miss waiting for his next book. His latest book just published with a collection of short stories left me with the feeling after most that I wish I could have read the rest of what I feel Mr. L'Amour was going to write to finish the books. I felt someone had found transcripts he had started and published them. Some were given false endings not to L.Amour standards and to me the most enjoyable tale in the whole book left me hanging on a cliff and there will never be any closure unless I use my imagination and assume that after reading L'Amour books over and over again that the story still had many, many chapters to go. More than just a fan. George K. McGuire III

My father and I will quote L'amour to each other. The book that has attached itself to my life, that I try to read once I year and have read once a year for the past 3 years is The Walking Drum. I would like to quote a line out that very book to the readers and fans of L'amour and to the L'amour family " My the sun always be to your back..". Thank You L'amour for years and decades of Thoughts and convictions.

I started the hardback collection of Louis L'Amour in the late 60's and I have read ever one of them to my knowledge. From The Listening Hills that came out this year (2003) is the last one. I have 119 of the hardback collection. I ask for a inventory sheet to see if I did have all of them in Feb. 2002, I did have all of them. Sense them I have received the one for 2002(May There Be A Road)amd 2003. If there are more to be published I will purchase those also. My Father didn't read much, but I started him, after a little coaching to try the short stories. He keep asking for a new bookto read. He is with the Lord now, he passed away in July 1989 and had read 99 books. Ilove to recall that part of our lives together because he received so much joy in reading the collection.

Ever since I read my first L'Amour book, Reilly's Luck, I've been reading all his novels whenever I can. I only have a few books to read, but in my opinion, Walking Drum was his best. It contained all the neccesities in a good novel. Thank you Louis, for your beautiful books.

I am almost 42 years old and I have read every Louis L'Amour book I could ever find. In fact the first book I every remember reading was Hondo, which I still have. Yes, the same book. He instilled in me a wonder and awe at the tenacity of the families that settled the west and in fact many areas of the world. He also created within me an urge to see and experience the places that he wrote about. I can be transferred to the time and place of the stories by reading them, but I would love to be able to stand at the "Crossings Of The Fathers" or "Palo Duro Canyon" and see it as it was. My thanks and heartfelt loss of the "Greatest Storyteller" ever. May his Spirit live on forever, and may I meet him in heaven.

I've been reading Mr. L'Amour's books for several years and just finished "The Walking Drum". If anyone knows if the author lived long enough to write the sequals noted at the end, advise the titles please.

Words cannot describe what Louis L'Amour writings have meant to me. The Sackett series should be reguired reading for all young adults in America. I truly appreciate all he has done for this country. His writings will live on in my family as long as I am alive to see to it.

I have been a long time fan and admirer of Louis Lamour and his noivels.I was first introduced to LL books by my grandfather when I was twelve years old.Since then, I have not read any other western novel.Once you read LL novel all others seem so fake.I will always remember,and forever be grateful for all the wonderful hours I have spent reading his books.----- P.S. I am still trying to find "The Sackett Handbook".Well keep up the good work and I will keep on reading. --Faithfull Reader-- Greg Holdeman

Have not read them all, I'm trying though. Just finished the last of the sackett novels recently. Wish there were more. Hondo was the latest I read. Being an animal lover, I couldn't stop from getting a lump in my throat when Sam was killed by Silva. Even though LL is no longer with us, his work will always be there. Thank you.

Louis was (and still is) the best. I read many of his books through the years and never did I read a bad one but I must say that the Sackett novels were his best in my opinion. He told a story like no one else could and I always felt like I was right there watching the whole story in person. He is a national treasure. His work will live on for ages to come. My respects to a great man.

Once I picked a character and he got killed and I had to pick another one so I could continue reading the story. I sure do miss him

I too appreciate his writing style and positive morality, while educatiing and entertaining the reader. I also enjoy the movies made from his stories, anticipating how they will be interpreted onto the screen. Thank you for sharing his life story with his fans.

I would like to thank Louis Lamour for forming most of my morals,and principals,and character in my life. My great grandfather Francois Jette migrated from Quebec thru North Dakota,and settled in Lac Qui Parle County,Minn. He was scout and interprter for the army all thru the indian wars,and finally a farmer.Because of him I feel a slight kinship to Louis.I believe he is the greatest storyteller of all time and miss him terribly. This country needs more Louis Lamour,s real bad. If anybody deserves to be in Heaven,Louis does. God bless you for continuing his legacy.

I must say Mr. L'amour is truly the greatest storyteller of all time. He is a legend of the Old West. I have been an avid reader of Mr. L'amour for a very long time. Every one of his books is truly a work of art and a window that we can look through to catch a glimpse of life on the old American frontier. I would like to say thank you to the L'amour family for carrying on the legacy and tradition of such a influential man.

A Louis L'Amour book entitled Hondo was given to me by my uncle when I was 10 years old, and it started a journey that will never end. That book was an original print that is still with me today at the age of 37. Reading Hondo started me reading all the L'Amour books I could find. The collection has grown to include almost all of his works that are available. It also made me want to read any and everything I could get my hands on. I just want to say thank you so very much. I am now proud to say that my son at the age of 8 is reading as many books as he can. He is in the 2nd grade and reading on a 3rd to 4th grade level. I hope he continues to read as he gets older. I firmly believe he will, as how that it started that way for me. I can honestly say that Louis L'Amour book was the reason. Thank you.

I don't know anything about Louis L'Amour books, but am increasingly curious. My husband has not read many books, and up until Loius L'Amour came into his life, I didn't think I would ever see his interest in reading be anywhere close to the level it has become. It is great! I've never been one to enjoy reading much, but that may change soon. He asked for the Sackett collection for Christmas, so we'll see what happens. Thanks!

We met when we were 23 working security at the Nevada Test Site & we have been together since, we both earned several degrees, (his in Social Work), but he was always a cowboy @ heart. I think he had every Louis book that existed. I hope he gets to meet Louis in heaven.

I have been reading L'amour books since high school (1968). I graduated from high school and joined the Army. I made it a career, so I traveled many places. I had Louis with me. I now have the collection in hard back, and have read them all. Some several times. My favorite is "Mohave Crossing". I have visited Joshua Tree several times. I do wonder about it though. In the book, "Lost Valley" is talked about. I've been there more than once, and it is not as described in the book. My Great, Great Grandfather came here from France. He married an indian girl. The family name is Hayes. They setteled in Tenn. The migrated to Okla, in the late 1800's. The family is still in OK, but some have returned to TN. I now live in Okay, OK. It is half way between Muskogee and Wagoner, OK. Very near the area called "Three Rivers". Where the Arkansas, Verdigris, and Grand Neosho rivers come together. Also very near Ft Gibson, OK. the oldest town in OK. A fort built by soldiers traveling up the Arkansas river from Ft Smith Ar, which is 92 miles away. Jubal Sackett would have come through this area. The Verdigris and Arkansa river now have a series of locks and dams, which allow barge traffic from Tulsa, OK to virtually anywhere in the world by water. I miss the writings of Louis L'amour. Although I never met the man, I considered him to be a friend.

I've been appreciating Louis Lamour's style and descriptive narative since the 50's. No one, including McMurtry, can develop characters, events, and suspense as well as Louis Lamour. Each novel stirred the imagination of the reader, as we picture the western life style. His style is unique. Each story develops the foundation of honor, love, loyality, and freedom. All great novels representing a bygone era, but with morales and values to be admired by any generation. RIDE FOR THE BRAND. Cary L. Hackler Texan by Birth.

I got started reading Louis L'Amour a little late in life around 35. I can only wish I had started earlier. He's one of the best frontier authors of our times. His works are captavating. He researched his material well, which makes his works seem non-fictional rather than fictional.

I listen to audio tapes when I'm on the road. I'm a truck driver. I get them at the library. I'm now hooked on the Sackets. I get excited when I drive through an area that is described in the books and actually see the splendor as described in the book. My trips seem shorter now. Sometimes I'm disapointed in getting to my destination because I have to turn off the tape.
