As all his stories are, this one is very good. It is a beautiful, hard bound book of a collection of his works.

Classic western fiction. When my son was a young teen he enjoyed these books when he was too old for children's books but not yet ready for modern adult fiction.

Book Description
Louis L'Amour brings you the Wild West :is you've never heard it before. This classic story, complete with a full cast, stirring music, and authentic sound effects, sweeps listeners back to the glory days of the late 1800s. The grit and action of this exclusive production of Riding for Brand truly brings Louis L'Amour's characters to life.

Stripped buck naked and left for dead after an attack by Indians, Jed Asbury stumbles across Michael Latch and several others murdered in cold blood, also left to rot in the desert sun. When he discovers that Latch was on his way to claim a huge ranch, Jed poses as Latch and claims it instead. But along with the windfall ranch comes big trouble when a rough and rowdy relative. Walt Seever, shows up to claim the ranch for himself.

Look for these and the many other exciting dramatizations of Louis L'Amour's short stories!

From the Publisher
The open West was a land where wanderers could find themselves a home--a home to fight for, to be changed by, sometimes to die for. Jed Ashbury was one such journeyman, taking on the identity of a dead man. Allen Ring was another: he'd won his plot of land in a card game only to find he had to win again with a gun. From a has-been boxer to a ranch hand taking on his bosses' troubles, the characters in these classic Louis L'Amour short stories are all "riding for the brand"-staying loyal to what matters, staking the West with their courage and their blood.

I enjoyed hearing these various actors reading this book; it just wasn't long enough for me, I'm always ready to hear more.
