It also unfold pretty predictably. Finally, this is one book that might have benefited from a little map which sometimes appears with L'Amour books ; I had some trouble following the local geography, and a lot of what happens depends on this -- access to a plateau, shortcuts to town, etc.

Jun 15, Lee rated it it was ok. Became interested in Westerns, decided to try L'Amour. Wasn't bad. Wasn't exactly riveting but I did enjoy it to a degree. Follows the formula. Would not be opposed to reading more L'Amour if the mood strikes. Apr 01, Melodee rated it liked it Shelves: western. This book is a pretty stock Western. There is a hero, the girl he falls in love with, and a bad guy.

You know how it is going to end, you just don't know how the author is going to get there. It's a quick, enjoyable light read. Who can not love a L'Amour? I've read everything he wrote, most more than once, over the years and I still enjoy a re-read now and then. This is a good one. No ambiguity at the end, our hero wins the land battle and the girl, both.
Gotta love a good fight and a happily ever after ending! Jun 25, Fredrick Danysh rated it really liked it Shelves: westerns. After Clay Bell spent years in building a ranch despite adversaries and nature, the ruthless speculator Jud Devitt attempts to take it away from him. An enjoyable tale by a master storyteller.
Feb 02, Matthew Hurley rated it it was amazing Shelves: fiction , adventure , history , westerns , louis-lamour. Really good story, although it still amazes me how many of Louis L'Amour's characters managed to study boxing with Jem Mace in New Orleans.
Feb 21, Clifford rated it really liked it Recommends it for: anyone who likes Louis L'amour westerns. Shelves: louis-l-amour-westerns. This one was rather fast paced and interesting.

An enjoyable western adventure that takes place in Arizona. Louis L'Amour always had the story telling capabilities to keep a reader entertained.
His books will be read over and over. Jul 31, Steve rated it really liked it. Louis L'amour is not known for massive great works with some exceptions-lonesome gods anyone? Nor are his novels lacking in the occasional plot hole and they certainly aren't the most historically accurate. And yet No one does the singular hero better then L'amour and he typically throws refences to places and events that did actually occur i Fine.
No one does the singular hero better then L'amour and he typically throws refences to places and events that did actually occur into his novels. Whatever the intrinsic flaws of the genre and his novelization nobody writes better westerns then he does and guns of the timberlands makes for an enjoyable read.
You'll enjoy the day or so it'll take you to thrill to Clay Bell's struggles against evil interlopers, his slow developing love for the unattainable or is she? Colleen, and his dogged pursuit of the American dream as told in told in this book. Perfect for when you're stuck at the airport, on the train or just need a light fiction break.
Apr 28, Ward G rated it liked it Shelves: western. Usually it is an evil cattle baron running folks out. This time a law abiding cattle rancher. Has a logging outfit, looking to do this to him. Luckily he is a smart man. With some tough hands, willing to fight by his side. I was all set to give this one a 5 star. Liked the characters and set up.
Then to my displeasure. The evil main villain is dealt with in a way. Yet his reason, and main plot point is never explained. His plotting, the whole catalyst behind it all. As he looks to pit the Usually it is an evil cattle baron running folks out. As he looks to pit the rancher and loggers against each other. Main character Clay Bell discovers some of the answers.
Yet it is said not to be gold. Then never completes what it is. That he has found. Along with what the main villain. Hoped to gain. That t me, loses several rating points.

Pretty good story. Jul 30, Michael D. Matchless Story that holds your attention word by word, writer without a match to his prose! Mr L'Amour has proven to have proof of a life lived, lead by his own history! He lived with the gift of ability to put into words that puts you walking beside characters he creates. Our world will miss his great adventures, but his writings remain with me to be revisited time and again! May 11, Faith High School rated it really liked it. Read by Samuel Gropper I enjoyed the book, because it was a action filled western.
The book has a great story that is very easy to fallow. The main character Clay Bell is a very interesting and smart person making the book very likable. Jul 29, Randy Grossman rated it really liked it. Another pretty good book by L'Amour.
A quick read with plenty of action. There was a portion of the story that got a little confusing to me as to who was in town and who was at the ranch. But overall another fine Western.
