Early in Louis L'Amour's career, he wrote a number of novel-length stories for "pulp" western magazines. "I lived with my characters so closely that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared went out of print," he said. "I wanted to tell the reader more about my people and why they did what they did." So he revised and expanded these magazine works to be published again as full-length novels. Here is one of these early creations that have long been a source of great speculation and curiosity among his fans. In Riders of the Dawn, a young gunslinger is changed for the better by a meeting with a beautiful woman. A classic range-war western, this novel features that powerful, romantic, strangely compelling vision of the American West for which L'Amour's fiction is known. In the author's words: "It was a land where nothing was small, nothing was simple. Everything, the lives of men and the stories they told, ran to extremes."

This is one of Louis's earlier books (early 1950's). Still a good solid western. My wife really liked the story because the main character (Matt Sabre) had the nerve to tell the main woman of the novel that he was going to marry her. Women, you have to listen to the dialogue to see what we mean. Anyway, this is a good western story for those of us (men or women) that yearn for a simpler time. Also, the narrator is one of the most western sounding guys I've heard.
