Early in Louis LAmours career, he wrote a number of novel-length stories for pulp western magazines. I lived with my characters so closely that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared went out of print, he said. I wanted to tell the reader more about my people and why they did what they did. So he revised and expanded these magazine works to be published again as full-length novels. Here are two of these early creations which have long been a source of great speculation and curiosity among his fans.
A Man Called Trent opens on nester Dick Moffitt lying dead where he was killed by King Bill Hales riders. His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called Trent an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter.
In Riders of the Dawn, a young gunslinger is changed for the better by a meeting with a beautiful woman. A classic range-war western, this novel features that powerful, romantic, strangely compelling vision of the American West for which LAmours fiction is known. In the authors words: It was a land where nothing was small, nothing was simple. Everything, the lives of men and the stories they told, ran to extremes.
