    "5 Louis L'Amour Short Stories"

    Of the 5 stories I liked the first one best: "Riding For The Brand".

    Then came: "Four Card Draw", "His Brother's Debt", "The Turkeyfeather Riders", and "The Nester and the Paiute", which has an amusing ending.

    The narrator's deep voice was great for male voices, but left a lot to be desired for female voices, although it did not detract from the stories.

    I have not been disappointed by any Louis L'Amour stories.
