From the book cover:
"For the Westerner trouble came with the territory. Long grass valleys, merciless deserts, sheer rock cliffs, icy streams, hidden trails, dusty towns. These were the proving grounds of daily life. At any time violence could explode and on the frontier there was no avoiding its sudden terrible impact. In this latest collection of his stories, Louis L'Amour guides us to some of these untamed places where men and women faced the challenge of survival. And for the first time, L'Amour also presents a selection of riveting scenes from western history which are every bit as exciting as his stories."
"Buckskin Run" was my first real "Western", and I must say I enjoyed it very much. This little compilation of Louis L'Amour stories was quite gripping. I had trouble putting it down once I began a story. There was a ton of action and gun-slinging adventure, interesting characters, a good dose of mystery... all tied together with excellent story-telling. I will certainly be reading the rest of Mr. L'Amour's work!
