Publisher's Summary

As part of the Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures series, this edition contains exclusive bonus materials!

It seemed the perfect place to lie low. The owner of the ranch was an attractive, gray-haired lady who had once been an actress. The other woman was a beautiful, fragile-seeming blonde. They needed repairs done, and he needed to disappear for a while. 

The first sign that things were not as they should be was when a Pinkerton man questioned him about a missing woman. Then he accidentally found a will belonging to the previous owner of the ranch. After that, a young lady showed up in town making claims that the place belonged to her. 

Worried that his hideout was turning into a battleground, he didn’t know what would be more dangerous, staying or leaving. For a man interested only in passin’ through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle....

Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures is a project created to release some of the author’s more unconventional manuscripts from the family archives.

In Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures: Volume 1 and Volume 2, Beau L’Amour takes the listener on a guided tour through many of the finished and unfinished short stories, novels, and treatments that his father was never able to publish during his lifetime. L’Amour’s never-before-seen first novel, No Traveller Returns, faithfully completed for this program, is a voyage into danger and violence on the high seas.

Additionally, many beloved classics will be rereleased with an exclusive Lost Treasures postscript featuring previously unpublished material, including outlines, plot notes, and alternate drafts. These postscripts tell the story behind the stories that millions have come to know and cherish.

Fabulous

Thinking at about more then 50 novels that I have read, and which have been written by Louis L'Amour (Sacketts and Talon and Chantry novels included) it is hard to name one that I found to be the best. all his books are simply fabulous. This one definitley makes a top 3.

Not a Sackett, or is it?

Excellent. A little different and yet very much a L'Amour western. Always loved everything he has written, but it seems there is a uniqueness to all of them. Captivating, moving, mysterious, always a little something more exposed at the right moment building the story. My favorite author.

Great story, one of my favorite L’Amour westerns

Great story line and good quality recording. It is unabridged even though I didn’t see that when I got it. I like the unabridged better and this book didn’t disappoint. Reader is good.

Boring?? HAIL No! A Master Class In Narrating.

I have heard very, very many narrators, and this guy dazzles me. He was born to narrate this book. Each character, male or female, has a distinct voice. Each sounds authentic, as regards age, gender, and background. The pace of his reading is just right. It is like listening to a play. You will immerse into the story naturally, as you will forget he's there.

The story is a fine, solid one, with a main character you care about, and root for. L'Amour did very well with this one. I believe he was wanting to see how well he could paint word pictures, as he made the scenery and settings come alive. Don't be passin through this selection.

Repetition

This book was something like 7hrs hours. It should have been 2hrs tops, there’s a lot of repetition.
