Selected Stories From May There Be A RoadAudiobook CD - 2001
2 CDs.2 hrs. 23 min. Performance by John Bedford Lloyd Here for the first time in one collection are original short stories by Louis L'Amour. Famed for his contributions to the Western genre, L'Amour's skills as a writer transcended merely one subject, as he displays in the wide range of settings, styles, and characters in this collection. From Tibetan peasants battling Chinese soldiers in the Himalayas to a lone hunter stalking a killer Grizzly Bear in Alaska to a prizefighter struggling for survival against both his opponents in the ring and the mob outside of it, L'Amour is an expert at getting to the heart of a multitude of conflicts, a master at what drives a diverse group of heroes. L'Amour displays his ease with a multitude of styles, from the jargon-heavy, hyper-kinetic language of the fast--talking boxing manager in Fighter's Fiasco, to the more deliberate, Marlowe-esque drawl of private detective Neil Shannon in The Vanished Blonde to the fluid prose and beautifully descriptive language used to make the landscape a character in The Quest for the Bear.
