Description
Three stories of hard fighting, hard riding, and hard frontier living from the king of the modern western. "A strong case may be made that L'Amour was the most popular American writer of the 20th century."-- The Wall Street Journal Mistakes Can Kill You As a boy, Johnny O'Day was saved from death when a couple took him into their home--yet he always harbored jealous resentment toward their biological son, Sam. But now Sam is in dire straits, and Johnny may be the only person who can come between his half brother and a pair of killers. The Rider of Ruby Hills Young cowboy Ross Haney is ready to settle down. But when a feud breaks out between the owners of two of the biggest spreads in Ruby Hills, it looks like the fair town is about to start raining lead. Ross has never been the kind to start trouble, but this time he's got allies--and a plan. The Man from Battle Flat Krag Moran is a rider with no need for trouble, but that's what he gets when he's pulled into a range war between ranchers and homesteaders. The town is divided, and anyone caught in the middle won't last long. And if Krag can't stop the shooting, everyone is doomed. Hailed by People magazine as "the kind of storyteller who makes the wolves come out of the woods to listen," Louis L'Amour delivers old-fashioned action and adventure like no one else.

display_description In "Mistakes Can Kill You," we meet Johnny O'Day, who has had to make his way in a man's world since he was a boy. Half dead from pneumonia, Joe Redlin and his wife took him in. Their natural son, Sam, harbored plenty of resentment toward the kid. But now, Sam's in big trouble, and Johnny may be the only person who can come between him and a pair of gunmen. Twenty-seven, broke, and armed, Ross Haney is "The Rider of Ruby Hills." Ross thinks he might be able to settle down and make a good life for himself here. But the owners of the two biggest spreads are participants in a feud that promises to destroy Ruby Hills. Ross may have been alone when he arrived in town, but now he has allies and plans. . . Krag Moran rides for rancher Carol Duchin in the title story. With the threat of a range war between ranchers and nesters, the town is divided. Trouble comes to a head when Bush Leason shoots Shorty Grimes in the back. Now, Krag is sitting in front of the Palace Saloon, and Bush knows exactly why he's there.
