Fiction. Western. Thriller. Historical Fiction. HTML:Classic tales that capture the heroic and indomitable spirit of our great land
The twelve stories in this collection run the spectrum of human emotions as they transport us from the fading majesty of the Old West to a small-town football field to the lonely canyons of one man??s mind. These classic tales of adventure, mystery, mysticism, and suspense epitomize the uniquely American yearning for connection and roots, justice and love, as only L??Amour can. Here is a diverse group of heroes and traitors, outlaws and lawmen??the innocent, the guilty, and those who operate in the shadowy territory outside the reach of justice.
The wastelands of Death Valley form the backdrop for the tale of a desperate man who leads his pursuers into a desert trap??where heat and thirst are his only weapons. A rodeo rider framed for a crime he didn??t commit takes a wild ride on a legendary bronco that may help him catch the real killers. An American pilot flies Russian and British agents into the labyrinthine forests of Asiatic Russia??only to discover that one of them is a traitor. A hit man discovers the fatal limits of friendship; and a quest for revenge becomes a frantic race to find a cache of gold hidden in the drifting sands of the Southwest. And in a powerful and moving parable, an Indian boy must lead his family across a drought-ravaged land with nothing to guide him but his faith.
The gripping title story counts down the final hours of a wounded man struggling to fend off his enemies and certain death. Before time runs out, he must finish the most important task of his life: a letter to his unborn son that will vindicate the family name. Filled with a special brand of passion and drama, From the Listening Hills is an exemplary collection that showcases the enduring talents of one of America??s

This mixed collection is better than some of L'Amour's short stories. In general, I prefer his Western stories to his adventure or sports tales, and like his novels more than his shorts. The title story (From the Listening Hills) was the best in this book. There's a couple of other Westerns, a Turk Madden story, a couple of football stories, and one or two others. ( )

A collection of stories he never published in his life time. Includes westerns and stories set on modern times. ( )
