Publisher's Summary

Rock Bannon, wounded in an Indian attack, is rescued by a wagon train heading to Oregon. He has fully recovered when the train pulls into a fort to stock up on supplies. It is there that the leaders of the train meet Morton Harper, a smooth-talking man who persuades them to take an easier trail that will allow them to escape an attack by Indians. Bannon knows that there will be no escape from attack on that route and that it will lead the train directly onto Hardy Bishop's vast ranching domain. Either way, and probably both, it will mean war - a war the pioneers will undoubtedly lose.

>Showdown first appeared in Giant Western (winter, 1948). Louis L'Amour subsequently reworked and expanded this story into The Tall Stranger, published in 1957. The expanded story was filmed as The Tall Stranger (Allied Artists, 1957), directed by Thomas Carr and starring Joel McCrea and Virginia Mayo.

    "A diamond in the rough"

    I don't know how I haven't picked this book up before now. Though it wasn't a great leap from LL's usual style of writing, this story caught me off guard and pleasantly surprised. I somehow found it a refreshing read, I guess. If you love reading LL, this book is for you.
