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 L'Amour's fiction is known. In the author's 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."

I don't know how he does it, each story is different, yet in all, one has the feeling of being there, right along with our hero. Whether listening or reading each character and setting can clearly be seen through the mind's eye. No wonder he's called the best story-teller of all time.
"Riders of the Dawn" is different than most of his stories I've read, with a woman playing a prominent role in the story.
The narrator gave a good performance.
I highly recommend it to all Louis L'Amour fans--and future fans.
Yes. I think I get more out of it with the audio version.
The big fist fight I guess was the best.
He is good at telling a story, and made it interesting that held my attention.
No I had to brake it down to three sittings.
Louis L'Amour's books are always good to read or to hear being read. I have read most of his stories, a lot of them when I was in Korea in the Army. We sure miss you Louis L'Amour.
I have read the book and it was a good book but this job of narration is awful. He sounds like somebody only trying to sound Western. I couldn't stand to listen to much more than 15 minutes of this.
Yes. good story and the reader has a great voice to listen to. i like the deep salty sound of his voice
the fist fights. the Author built up the tension for the fight well and held it off well. i also really enjoyed the love interest in this tale of western adventure.
too hard to decide. over all a good adventure and fun to listen to. i look forward to hearing more stories by Louis L'amour and this reader.
rename it?? the name suites the story just fine.
easy to get carried away to the frontier when the west was new
if youve ever read a L'Amour book ....this one flows right into the rest
yes. not only does he fit L'Amours books but the characters could be sitting right across the fire from me.
no extreme reaction. typical western novel with more beauty in discription than plot
