Old-fashioned tales of courage, challenge, and bare-knuckled manhood abound in this unabridged recording. L'Amour's stories are brought to life in rousing fashion by John Bedford Lloyd, whose dramatic skills and resonant tones are ideal for these genres. Strong on dialogue and terse description, whether the plots involve hard-boiled detectives, WWII battles in air and sea, or pistols on the lone prairie, the yarns will remind you of the joys of Old-Time Radio. These well-produced stories, and the author who created them, are a treasured part of American culture. D.J.B.
