A WORD FROM LOUIS L'AMOUR "Almost forty years ago, when my fiction was being published exclusively in 'pulp' western magazines, I wrote several novel-length stories, which my editors called 'magazine novels.' In creating them, I became so involved with my characters that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared became collector's items. Pleased as I was about how I brought the characters and their adventures to life in the pages of the magazines, I still wanted the reader to know more about my people and why they did what they did. So, over the years, I revised and expanded these magazine works into fuller-length novels that I published in paperback under other titles. "These particular early magazine versions of my books have long been a source of great speculation and curiosity among many of my readers, so much so of late, that I'm now pleased to collect three of them in book form for the first time. "I hope you enjoy them."

display_description Louis L'Amour is now one of the most iconic western writers of all time, but once upon a time he was Jim Mayo, a regular writer for the pulps. And some of the stories he wrote in those days stuck with him enough that he revised and expanded them into novels. "The Trail to Peach Meadow Canon" first appeared in Giant Western in October, 1949. The text was expanded and substantially changed when it subsequently was published as an original paperback titled Son of a Wanted Man in 1984."The Trail to Crazy Man" was first published in West in July of 1948, and was later expanded into a paperback original published by Ace Books in 1954 as Crossfire Trail, and was later made into a film starring Tom Selleck. But there was a special magic to the original stories, and after research and restoration, the stories appear here in their original version.
