Abstract:
"Law of the Desert Born is a collection of short stories about the lives of women and men on the American frontier, with notes newly written by the author placing each story in its authentic western setting. Whether depicting the perilous lives of homesteaders on the open range ('One Last Gun Notch'), the interdependence of man and his environment ('Desert Death Song') or the bitter feuds of ranchers and cattlemen ('The Black Rock Coffin Makers') Louis L'Amour's tales show people grappling to survive and to maintain their dignity and independence against the odds of savagery and fear."--from back cover
