Louis L'Amour Commemorative Stamp
(sample stamp - not actual design)
Louis L'Amour fans are invited to join in a project honoring his forty years as a writer. In Jamestown, North Dakota, Louis' hometown, a project was started in 1998 to obtain a commemorative postage stamp from the U.S. Postal Service in recognition of his immense body of work encompassing the excitement and adventure of the American Frontier.
- By 2000 sales of L'Amour's books reached the 300 million mark.
- All of his books have portrayed the courageous, tenacious spirit of the men, women and children who settled all regions of our country.
- L'Amour's books are translated into 27 languages making him one of the best foreign literature ambassador's we've ever had.
- 45 motion pictures have been based on L'Amour's books (shown in theaters and on television).
- Although Louis' stories have strong man-woman content they can be read by all ages.
