This is a tale of a struggling single mother, a battle-hardened loner, and a brave and feared Apache warrior. Their struggle for survival and finding their place in the harsh Arizona desert is more than enough to spin a truly epic Western story out of. Together, the pioneer woman, the gunslinger, and the Apache Warrior play out the drama of love, war, and honor on a remote Arizona ranch. The novel was transformed into a movie featuring John Wayne as Hondo Lane in 1953 (See the IMDB article on Hondo here).
L'Amour once again does the West proud to telling the innumerable tales that are uniquely ours. These tales have forever shaped America. Many L'Amour novels and short stories have been made into full-length movies, such as "Crossfire Trail" featuring Tom Selleck. He was awarded the Medal of Freedom in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan. There are over 270 million copies of L'Amour's books floating around in the world. That is almost one book per American. Climb aboard this stage and join the ever-growing fan base that is devoted to keeping the Old West alive!
