    I'm not a huge western book fan, but I have really enjoyed a few of Louis L'Amour's books.

    The Haunted Mesa

    Last of the Breed

    Both were great and ones that I would or have read more than once.

    I enjoyed the Sackett series greatly.

    I've also enjoyed some of his non-western books. Fair Blows the Wind and The Walking Drum. :tu

    To the Far Blue Mountains and Jubal Sackett are probably my favorite Sackett books.

    He looked directly into my eyes and said with great pride. "I am Kickapoo Keokotah." "A nation of warriors," I acknowledged. He was pleased.

    If you like westerns, try a Zane Grey - see how much the world has changed since the 1930's. I recommend "Arizona" as perhaps his best.

    Read everyone of L'Amour's books back when I was in high school, think my favorites were something other than the westerns!

    I read dozens of his books back in high school and college, quite a few were made into movies.
    Nice fast reads that flow along well.

    I thought his book 'Sitka' was an interesting one, and worth reading if you like history mixed with learning a little about real locations.

    'Sitka'
