"Help us identify errors, typos, etc"


          

Find a misspelling, typo, or glaring error in logic in one of Louis' books? Well this is the place to let us know. We'll compile the list and get it off to the publisher in an effort to get them corrected.

NOTE: Any changes will be gradual and may not show up for years depending on the printing schedule and logistics involved in making changes. But we'll give it our best effort.

ALSO: Please don't include printing or binding errors such as the last half of the book bound in upside down or missing chapters or duplicate chapters in a book. These are packaging errors and must be dealt with by the original retail seller of the book to you.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Paul

Hi Paul,

One possibility in "Get Out of Towm" sent to you by email. Too long to paste into the forum.

Thanks Hal. I've got it but I think it slipped through at Bantam. One of the reasons for gathering a bunch of corrections is I can follow up more easily and also be sure they put someone on it and get it all done at once.

Someone quite recently wrote in about an error in consistency in Utah Blaine, something to the effect that a character was lynched but was later referred to as having been shot, or vice versa.

Here it is. It was from the eagle-eyed Peter:
Just started reading this a few minutes ago. On page 5 a man named Gid Blake is said to have died in a shootout with vigilantes. Then on page 6 you find this: "He was not at all satisfied about the hanging of Gid Blake..."
I occasionally see misspelled words in books but I don't ever remember seeing anything like this before.

Hi. In The Sackett Brand, LL mistakenly writes Ange Kerry out of Tell's life. Please correct! :)

If we are going to use any help you can give us there must be page numbers and A BIT OF TEXT so we can search it in a computer file.

We are looking for CONCRETE issues, he says on thing here and another thing there, or mis-spellings or typos.

I won't be rewriting bits of stories to correct things unless it was obvious to me what Dad intended and probably not even then. But I really do appreciate the help in perfecting our product.

hi Beau. It looks like you're directing "SPECIFICS" at my post, but I was totally joking, kidding. Not that we did not feel so sorry for poor ole' homely Tell when Ange was killed...but the post was meant strictly facetiously.

I laughed out loud when I read this. I think pretty much everyone agrees with your sentiment. I would think he could have written the same story except for having her get kidnapped and it would have worked just as well. Oh well.

Error in The Man from the Broken Hills: Chapter 17, p. 173: Milo Talon is speaking: "If I were you...I'd talk to my pa first." Should read, "If I were you...I'd talk to YOUR pa first." Milo Talon's pa is deceased.

In The Man from the Broken Hills there appears to be a map error at the beginning of the book. In Chapter 26, p. 258, Milo Talon speaking, "...I started due east toward the head of Five Mile Creek." P. 259, "Nightfall found me under some bluffs near the head of Little Bluff Creek." Same page, "...the Llano was about eight or nine miles due SOUTH." The map shows Five Mile Creek and Little Bluff Creek already south of the Llano. There are other actions in chapters 26 and 27 that happen NORTH of the Llano, so changing the word SOUTH to NORTH would not solve the problem. The map could be changed showing the two creeks to be NORTH of the Llano, unless they are south of the Llano in reality.

Somewhere I remember this error, "The horse raised his head, with water dripping from his nozzle." Can't remember where I saw it. Will have to do some research.

Error in Kiowa Trail, Chapter 7, p. 89: "He was one man alone, and he rode a MULE." P. 91: "He came riding up to the saloon and dismounted, tying his HORSE to the hitch rail." There are other references made to MULE, so it should be MULE.

Somebody once said that in one of the Sackett books someone does battle with a woolly mammoth. Maybe you could switch it to a mountain lion, or something else a little less anachronistic.

This fight took place in the last chapter of Jubal Sackett. LL's note at the end of the book: "According to scholars mammoths died out around 6000 B.C. Nonetheless, American Indians record hunting and killing them. One such report occurs in the Bureau of Ethnology report, The Ponca Tribe...David Thompson, the distinguished Hudson's Bay Co. explorer, on January 7, 1811, came upon some tracks near the Athabasca River in the northern Rockies which the Indians told him were those of a mammoth...

Paul, I found an error in The Sackett Companion, pp. 254-255: On the chart of The Sackett Family Tree, there is line above Yance and Temperance Penney connecting them as if they were siblings. That line should not be there.

Oh man you guys are like stealthy ninjas in your quest for LL's syntax boo-boo's, typos, flubs and misspellings along with errant mistakes...
I got so used to them over time that I've actually come to expect them and welcome them as old friends with me totally understanding of them as having been true to Louis L'Amour's "style"
Without them I'd hesitate to identify his fiction because his yonderings are not perfect but down to earth "tall-tales shared by the campfire stories".
I daresay that I kind of cherish them; although I agree I'm not against correcting/fixing some in need.
Methinks as I caught this stuff annoyed me little; because in my deepest thoughts I've always sort of looked the other way knowing at the time having properly in my minds eye fixed a gaze upon LL sitting with an old beat-up typewriter on his lap or desk hacking away at the keys feverishly attempting closure at seeing how/where the story goes.
With me always, every-time, all of the time the better customer for its resulting happiness-satisfaction in my soul's partaking of another cherished good read...nuff said

"Ay...yie yi...yeye yi"

Yes--and further up the road past the falls is an interesting fish hatchery---all trout for stocking the Little Tennessee River once a year. At the Bald River Falls--get out of your car and hike the trail that follows the river, up-stream for about 5 miles. Great hiking !!

Another horse/mule error: The Mountain Valley War, beginning of chapter 11, p. 94: "At daybreak Ma Hatfield was off to Cedar riding a sorrel MARE..." P. 95: "She came up the back street and rode at once to the back door of the Crystal Palace. Tying her MULE, she tapped gently."

Is there no such animal as a mare mule; or no such animal as a sorrel mule?

a rare sorrel mare mule eunuch indeed
I agree with Sailboat and 10987654321,
I peeked at some beautiful pictures of Bald River Falls Little Tennessee River...nice
and my thanks to Sailboat's recommendations listed under "Help us Identify Errors Typos"

I stand corrected; there is such a thing as a mare mule, although rare, as Rick said.

Leo Lessard -
On Pg 65 in The Mountain Valley war, there is a citation which states that Andrew Jackson killed a man in a duel. It continues by stating that it was only a few years back. This cannot be. Andrew Jackson killed Charles Dickinson and he was the only one who ever was killed by Jackson. Unfortunately, the problem is - this happened in 1806 so this could not match the timeline given in the book.

On pg. 17, Virgil Earp killing Billy Brooks is cited but according to my research at this link,(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_L._Brooks), Brooks was lynched while awaiting trial on July 29, 1874. Also, a gun battle did take place but it was Morgan who shot Billy Brooks in the stomach, and as some stories cite - fatally. Virgil had nothing to do with Billy Brooks from what I can find.

Leo Lessard - Not sure but...On page 91 in the Buckskin short story novel, i.e., Squatters on the Lonetree, Ann Tanner refers to her husband, Morgan Tanner as Morgan "Turner". Not sure if this is a mistake as there is not other reference to a "Turner".

In Borden Chantry, his wife's name was Helen. In North to the Rails, pg. 1, Borden's wife name is now Bess. Since North to the Rails follows Borden Chantry, and Tom was around in both, the wife's name should be the same - Helen.

Sorry...I got it backwards. In Borden Chantry, his wife's name was Bess. In North to the Rails, Borden's wife's name was Helen. The North to the Rails inference should be changed to Bess.

This is in the Short Story novel - Yondering. The short story Dead-End Drift, pg. 46, "Goldfied" should be "Goldfield".

#71. "Cactus Kid"
In response to Reply # 0


          

This is in reference to "The Outlaws of Mesquite" and the story of "Love and the Cactus Kid". Pg 49, 2nd line, "winging" should be "swinging".

In The High Graders, Louis named the wilderness cabin Mike took the mule train to as Lost Cabin. At books end Louis was, mistakenly It seems, calling it Stone Cabin. (I read this book on Kindle).

In the Bantam edition of Borden Chantry on page 167, order is talking to Lang Adams and says, “Howdy, Lang! Had breakfast? I just ordered me some ham and. Come on over and I’ll stand treat.”

It should read, “I just ordered me some ham and .”

Leo Lessard <(;oD) I am not sure if this topic has been covered and I am sure it has but...
Kilkenny listings from what I have seen are incorrect. The first book should be, The Rider of Lost Creek - pg. 69 where he first meets Nita Riordan. The second one in the series is The Moutntain Valley War - where Nita follows him and the last, 3rd is Kilkenny where he finally gets together with Nita. Seems I have seen these titles mixed up somewhere..just not sure where.

The Man From Broken Hills..
Page 170..Line 18..."Where is he now? Where's your brother, Ann?

He was talking to Lisa, not Ann. Ann he didn't find until later.

Should have been "brother, Lisa?.

In the Collector's Series, Page 160, 6th para, 3rd line, 7th word. "best" should be "rest".

May There Be A Road- on the spine it has "The Louis L'amouor Collection" with Louis L'amour spelled on the same spine lower down.

However, looking at other books online I have found some versions where his name was spelled correctly, and others with the above error.

Trying to verify it isn't a fake.
