The Riders of High Rock | [Louis L'Amour]

The Riders of High Rock

Hopalong rode into cattle country just east of the California line looking for his old friend Red Connors. He found Red holed up in a mountain cave with a bullet in his side and a story to tell. The ranchers around Tascotal had been losing their stock, and when Red caught the rustlers in the act, they hunted him down, shot him, and left him for dead. Jack Bolt, a savage, ruthless killer, has brought in a tough band of hardcases to run his operation.

Publisher's Summary

Hopalong rode into cattle country just east of the California line looking for his old friend Red Connors. He found Red holed up in a mountain cave with a bullet in his side and a story to tell. The ranchers around Tascotal had been losing their stock, and when Red caught the rustlers in the act, they hunted him down, shot him, and left him for dead.

Jack Bolt, a savage, ruthless killer, has brought in a tough band of hardcases to run his operation. And now he's sent them out to take care of the one man who stands in his way: Hopalong Cassidy. But Bolt's about to learn the hard way that if you shoot down a man like Cassidy, you better make sure he never gets up again.

    "Hopalong Plus L'Amour Gold"
    If you could sum up The Riders of High Rock in three words, what would they be?

    Great Western Adventure


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Petkoff did a masterful job with his performance. He nailed each of the characters, and kept the book flowing and the characters easy to follow.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to all four of L'Amour's "Hopalong" books, and enjoyed them greatly. I know L'Amour was not real proud of them, even denying writing them up to his death. But these are good classic western books.

    Story
    "Early Work"

    "The Riders of High Rock" was written in 1951, and although I did not enjoy it in the same respect as his later work, I did enjoy it. I had to smile when he used phrases like, 'on TIP-TOE Hoppy went behind the building' etc.. I would not recommend his earlier work to a "first time" reader of Louis L'Amour's work, but I found it interesting to see how his writing progressed. Even by the time he wrote Hondo in 1953, his writing had greatly improved-- "Hondo" (1953) and "Flint" (1960) are voted places in the 25 best Western Novels of all time. I love his books, especially the ones he wrote about the SACKETTS, beginning in 1965...By that time he had become known as "the greatest story-teller of all time" and "King of Westerns", etc.

    I have not read any L'Amour book that I did not like, although some more than others.

    I think it is worth the read!.
