The Golden West Kindle Edition
THREE LEGENDARY AUTHORS!
THREE CLASSIC NOVELS!
INCLUDING NEWLY RESTORED MATERIAL!
When it comes to Western adventure, no author comes close to the three giants included in this landmark volume. These are the men who created the Western, shaped it, and perfected it. The Golden West collects three of their finest short novels. Max Brand's powerful Jargan is carefully restored to its original, full-length glory, with material never before seen. Tappan's Burro has long been considered one of Zane Grey's masterpieces, but only a shorter, edited version has been in print. The version included here was taken directly from Grey's actual manuscript. Louis L'Amour's The Trail to Crazy Man was rewritten years later as Crossfire Trail, which became the basis for the movie of the same name. Presented here is L'Amour's original version. These authors are the stuff of Western legend, and at last you can read their finest work as they themselves intended.
About the Author
Louis L'Amour is undoubtedly the bestselling frontier novelist of all time. He is the only American-born author in history to receive both the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal in honor of his life's work. He has published ninety novels; twenty-seven short-story collections; two works of nonfiction; a memoir, Education of a Wandering Man; and a volume of poetry, Smoke from This Altar. There are more than three hundred million copies of his books in print worldwide.
Pearl Zane Grey was an American dentist and author best known for his popular adventure and Western novels. In works like Riders of the Purple Sage, his bestselling book, he idealized the American frontier. His novels and short stories have been adapted into more than a hundred movies, two TV episodes, and a TV series.
Max Brand's action-filled stories of adventure and heroism in the American West continue to entertain readers throughout the world. Brand penned over two hundred full-length Westerns in his career, including Destry Rides Again and Montana Rides.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
