Publisher's Summary

More than any writer before or since, Louis L'Amour brought the American West to life. His action-packed stories deal with eternal themes: honor, deceit, passion, betrayal, loyalty, courage, love. His settings are historically accurate, his prose riveting, and his characters colorful: good guys, bad guys, toughs, roughs, sidekicks, and saints.

Trail Mix: Volume One gathers together three popular Louis L'Amour stories, most performed by Willie Nelson. "Riding for the Brand" features Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings in a fully dramatized performance.

Contents:

  • "Riding for the Brand"
  • "The Black Rock Coffin Makers"
  • "Dutchman's Flat"
  • (P)1997, 1999 HighBridge Company

    Critic Reviews

    "[Willie] Nelson imbues L'Amour's narrative with just the right touch of emotion trickling through his countrified lilt." (The Boston Herald)

    Worst ever..i love willie but he reads like i sing

    Wille READS the story like he left his car double parked when he went into the studio to record this book. No real touch or crustyness like you would expect from a star like him. I wouldnt say it was a total waste , it DID remind me of my grade school days when the teacher made the worst reader in the class get up and read in front of everybody. Hey willie if you read this....i love everything you do, thats why i bought this book...but give it up..buy a few audiobooks narrated by Keith Carradine and learn how real western fans like to listen to their stories.

    Tales of the West

    This was my first taste of L'amour's writing, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but I found myself thoroughly hooked on the characters and stories of the old West. Willie Nelson's warm and folksy narration in particular was a good fit. I'm looking forward to the stories in Volume 2.

    This is really great.

    This reminds me so much about the Westerns that my dad was so fond of. Wonderful memories. Thank you so much. We absolutely need more of these

    disappointing

    This book has the same stories as "Louis L'Amour Collection (unabridged)".
    Already listened to these stories.
