Publisher's Summary

Two men. One woman. A land that demanded courage...or death.

He was a man etched by the desert's howling winds, a big, broad-shouldered man who knew the ways of the Apache and ways of staying alive. She was a woman raising a young son on her own on a remote Arizona ranch. And between Hondo Lane and Angie Lowe was the warrior Vittoro, whose people were preparing to rise against the white men. Now the pioneer woman, the gunman, and the Apache warrior are caught in a drama of love, war, and honor.

Richardman on Hondo

I've read all of LL and now listening is just as good. Hondo is well worth the time to listen.

Nice story with a good ending

I guess I love it. Listened to it many times. That should tell you something.

Another great book

Just enjoyed it thoroughly. Simple pleasures; like pizza and beer. Or, wine and cheese. Take your pick. L'Amours's books are just like that. A sheer pleasure to read. Nothing to worry about. No threat, no sweat. Just pure country pleasure wrapped up in a lean, mean cowboy who can shoot fast, and walk hard --- and some pretty women (who might be good or bad). PLOTS generally run the same, but what the heck. So do the romances, and the mysteries.Yet, read them we do. Simmer down and enjoy.

True Love

If you loved John Wayne's movie or the TV show you will really enjoy this book. It is really a love story with a western theme.

Really enjoyed it

Really good story and performance but if gender stereotypes will take you out of a story. Then parts will be problematic.

Nice story

I’ve never watched the movie but I did picture John Wayne in my mind the entire story. Has good action and stories about honesty and duty but overall it’s a love story to me. Enjoyed it!!

Simply enjoyable

The story is simple. Yet I still found myself interested in knowing what happens next. Vocals set a mood.

Incorredt chapter numbers

I am a Louis L'Amour fan ~ have been for years I probably have all his novels in my library. The reason I gave this an overall rating of 2 is that this and every other of his books that I have listened to have for some stupid reason the recording company has chosen to use its own chapter breaks instead of following the chapter breaks of the author. This is VERY frustrating if you want to go to a specific chapter.
