IT WAS NO WORK FOR A WOMAN.


That's what they told Mary Breydon when she came to manage a rundown stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail.  But Mary had no choice.  Her fine Virginia home burned to ashes in the Civil War and her husband was brutally shot down on the way to Colorado.  She needed to make a new beginning for herself and her young daughter on the raw frontier.  Isolated in an untamed land, their life at the station was achingly hard and they faced the constant danger of attacks by outlaws and marauding Indians.  Yet with the support of a spirited Irish woman, a fearless orphan boy and most of all, the mysterious gunman Temple Boone, Mary found the courage to shape her station into a vital stop on America's westward journey.  Until the vicious murderer whose bloody rampages had stained her past suddenly stalked Mary Breydon to Cherokee Station.

THEY CAME TO THE COMSTOCK...

It was just a godforsaken mountainside but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures—they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the chal-lenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future. Louis L'Amour is the bestselling storyteller of the Ameri-can past with over 160 million copies of his books in print. Now, bringing to life all the sweep and excitement of the world's greatest silver strike, Louis L'Amour has written his biggest novel of the West.

LOUIS L'AMOUR
AMERICA'S STORYTELLER


Dear Reader,

I've derived a lot of pleasure in the past decade in personally preparing collections of my short stories for my publisher, Bantam Books, to issue in paperback.

Now, without my permission, a publisher I do not approve of is trying to publish some of my stories that appear in this collection in a book bearing this same title.  I am outraged by their completely unauthorized edition of my stories, and I have put together this collection so my fans will not be shortchanged.

The only authorized edition of Dutchman's Flat is this one, published by Bantam.  There are more of my personally selected and edited stories in this authorized edition than in any unauthorized version.  And, as I've done for Bowdrie's Law, Buckskin Run, and my other books of short stories, I've also added new introductory notes of interest and written a special forward that puts these stories in an historical and personal context.

BANTAM BOOKS IS THE ONLY PUBLISHER AUTHORIZED TO ISSUE MY SHORT STORIES IN BOOK FORM.  ONLY ACCEPT MY SHORT STORY COLLECTIONS PUBLISHED BY BANTAM.

I am confident that my loyal fans will want to read only the authorized Bantam editions of my stories.

Sincerely,

Louis L'Amour

LONG RIDE HOME


No one brings to life the Old West like Louis L'Amour.  Collected here for the first time, these vintage frontier stories introduce you to lawmen and loners, ranchers and renegades, gunslingers, cardsharps, bank robbers - even a "he school-ma'rm."  In these pages L'Amour brings to life such classic characters as the Cactus Kid, Tensleep Mooney, One-Eared Tim, and the gunfighter Kim Sartain.  These are frontier tales as only L'Amour can tell them - stories that surprise like the sharp crack of a Winchester and move like the lonely howl of the wind across an empty plain on the long ride home.

LOUIS L'AMOUR

THE LEGEND OF LONIGAN


In his newest collection of frontier short fiction, Louis L'Amour celebrates the tough breed of men who work the cattle drives.  Men like Lonigan, whose quick draw and hard fists were as respected as his reputation for doing right by the people who did right by him.  Lonigan didn't just ride herd for Tom Gurney's Circle G, he loved it as if it were his own.  But now that Tom was dead his daughter Ruth was braving the hard cattle drive into Dodge, and it didn't look like she would make it - thanks to the conniving outlaw band who thought she was easy pickins'.  But they hadn't counted on Lonigan, who would show them no fear and no mercy.

Tell Sackett was packing thirty pounds of gold and no worries - until he got to the ferry at the Colorado.  Trouble found him there.  It looked like a black-eyed woman, pretty as a young filly, and a hundred times more set to buck any man.  It looked like a gang of hardcases, with other folks' gold.  And trouble looked like the other side of the rive - the hottest, driest, most brutal desert on the continent.

CUT 'N' SHOOT

Holed up in a cabin in the Idaho hills, the mysterious man who called himself Trent wasn't looking: for trouble.  It came looking for him.  A trigger-happy kid named Cub Hale emptied his gun into an unarmed man.  Then he came swaggering after Trent.  The girl who ran the gambling hall tried to get him to hightail it.  But Trent wasn't buying.  Even in that forsaken back country, he knew when a man had to speak with his shooting iron.

IT WAS ALMOST
TOO MUCH FOR EVEN A
SACKETT TO HANDLE!


He could outride and outshoot any five men, but he was a fool for a lady in distress.  The posse was hot on his trail for murder when he took time out to rescue Sylvie from a gang of desperados.  It wasn't till she'd bushwhacked him with a shotgun, and tried to poison him that he realized she was up to no good.  And no sooner had he shot his way out of her clutches than he met Penelope.  After he'd heard her sad story, he should have cut and run, but somehow a Sackett never seems to learn the easy way.

THE DUDE

He came from the East to buy cattle, to the untamed land where there was no law but a man's courage.  He came to get his steers to the railroad, not to kill.  He was a peaceable man, but when French Williams and the local outlaws mistook him for a victim, there was lead to pay.
