The Lonesome Gods is Louis L'Amour's biggest and most important historical novel to date, a sweeping adventure of the California frontier. Here is the fascinating story of Johannes Verne, a young man left to die by his vengeful grandfather, rescued by outlaws and raised in part by the Indians of the desert. Strengthened by the love of two women—Miss Nesselrode, whose mysterious past fires her ambitions for the future and Meghan, a willful young beauty—Verne grows to become a rugged adventurer, a man strong enough to embrace the awesome power of the Palm Springs desert, and bold enough to stake a claim in the bustling world of opportunity that was early-day Los Angeles.

"Riveting reading." (The New Yorker)
"This is L'Amour's finest book." (California Magazine)
Too much philosophy not enough action... The story drags on and the constant philosophy lessons take away from the main storyline. Boring, drawn out, just a 500 plus page book that should have been 300 pages!
