Book review: The Rider of Lost Creek by Louis L’Amour

The Rider of Lost Creek is a fun read.

With over a hundred novels Louis L’Amour has created many characters. Lance Kilkenny is one of my favorites. Louis L’Amour wrote three novels and three short stories about Kilkenny. He is one of the fastest with a gun, but tries to avoid trouble.

In many ways this is a classic Louis L’Amour. We have gun battles and fist fights. There are cattle, long rides and a beautiful woman.

Mort Davis is a friend of Kilkenny. Mort gets in trouble and asks for help. Kilkenny comes a running.

One of the things I like about this story is the depth. The plot is nicely done. We have a number of obvious items, but there are also a few fun twists.

If you haven’t read any Louis L’Amour stories before, of you already know & enjoy Louis L’Amour, give “The Rider of Lost Creek” a try. I think you’ll enjoy it
