They came west to stay, risking their blood to dig the
gold, ride the range, conquer the greedy, and carve out
a legacy of freedom. Men honed by desert fires and edged
by combat with fist and gun. Women tested to the limit
of endurance by an unrelenting land. Now, in a long-awaited
collection of his stories, Louis L'Amour tells of the
real heroes of the frontier, the survivors for whom hanging
tough was as natural as drawing breath.
