I found the old man as he lay dying in a niche of rock near the spring, his body riddled with bullets.  His eyes rested on mine as I went down on my knees beside him.  "You," he gasped.  "I leave all I have to you, Matt Brennan.  Never to sell - never to give up!"  So I had been given a ranch, but I had lost a friend.  For the first time in my life I really wanted to kill, wanted it so much that my hands shook...

"ABOVE ALL, L'AMOUR IS THE CONSUMMATE

ADVENTURE THAT WILL CATCH NEWCOMERS
BY SURPRISE."
- LOS ANGELES HERALD EXAMINER

Here is an historical adventure of extraordinary power waiting to sweep you away to exotic lands as one of the most popular writers of our time conquers new storytelling worlds.

Louis L'Amour has been best known for his ability to capture the spirit and drama of the authentic American West.  Now he guides his readers to an even more distant frontier - the enthralling lands of the 12th century.

At the center of The Walking Drum is Kerbouchard, one of L'Amour's greatest heroes.  Warrior, lover, scholar, Kerbouchard is a daring seeker of knowledge and fortune bound on a journey of enormous challenge, danger and revenge.  Across Europe, the Russian steppes and through the Byzantine wonders of Constantinople, gateway to Asia, Kerbouchard is thrust into the heart of the treacheries, passions, violence and dazzling wonders of a magnificent time.

From castle to slave galley, from sword-racked battlefields to a princess's secret chamber, and ultimately, to the impregnable fortress of the Valley of Assassins, The Walking Drum is a powerful adventure of an ancient world you will find every bit as riveting as Louis L'Amour's stories of the American West.
