The author of 109 books which have collectively sold more than 200 million copies, Louis L'Amour is one of America's best-loved writers. His fictional accounts of life in the old west, full of colorful lore and homespun philosophy, have captured the imaginations of millions of devoted readers. Louis L'Amour is truly a publishing phenomenon. Since the publication of Robert L. Gale's first study of L'Amour in Twayne's United States Authors Series (1985), much new material has appeared, including 16 new books, five of them posthumous (L'Amour died in 1988). This revised edition covers the full range of L'Amour's work. The book begins with a biographical chapter on L'Amour's life, drawing on information that has only recently become available. Gale then considers L'Amour's vast output, calling attention to its artistic merits as well as its defects. The book concludes with a consideration of L'Amour's literary style and his personal philosophy. Louis L'Amour, Revised Edition is a sympathetic yet critical study of the most popular western writer of all time, and the only scholarly work about L'Amour currently available. It will be of interest to students of American literature and popular culture, and a must for all library collections.
