An OK collection of L Amour stories I have read them at one time or another separately Misleading description of the theme behind the collection as each is not a dramatic tale of men and women pushed to the limits of human endurance and surviving against all odds. This was the first Louis L Amour book I read and I have to say that With These Hands is a perfect introduction to the writings of L Amour Action packed, each story in this collection of shorts really delivers the goods with a whole lot of punches and crime Yes it is true that the prose may leave something to be desired for those inclined to reading Literature But I ve read a lot of capital L literature and sometimes it s good to read some honest to goodness, slam bang prose It s a break from the tedium of always pervasive This is the most important writing ever attitude that some writers tend to have L Amour would be the first to tell you that it was always story over writing that was important The writing, in other words, is just a content delivery system, getting from point A the writer s head to point B the reader s head as quickly as possible Thus, in these stories, a reader spends a lot of time filling in the blan Loved half the stories. It s hard to beat anything by Louis L Amour even though his style is old time narrator, the plots are always full of action and the Westerns, especially, are great This book is a bit different than his novels because it is one of four books that hold collections of his short stories It s the last book of the four book s With These Hands is the last in a series of four collections of short stories written by Louis L Amour in his early days I belive it was compiled by his son, Beau The included stories are clearly less polished than what he wrote in subsequent years, but you can see the unmistakable L Amour style in them, and they carry the same themes of honor, courage, loyalty, good vs evil, and unashamed manhood that characterized his later novels They ar Just finished With These Hands, a collection of stories also by L Amour The book opens with a rough and tumble boxing story I ll make a confession right now what little I know of boxing and street fighting, I learned as a very young girl from L Amour Haymaker and Liverpool kiss are probably not in the vocabulary of most eight year olds I like L Amours books because in spite of themselves they feel plausible, probably because L Amour drew from personal experience and his biography reads like one of his own novels To summarize He grew up in North Dakota and left home at 15, getting jobs as a seaman, lumberjack, elephant handler, and miner, among other things He served in WWII, circled the world on a freighter, sailed a dhow on the Red Sea, was shipwrecked in the West Indies, and was stranded in the Mojave Desert He won 51 out of 59 professional boxing matches, and he was a journalist and lecturer Somewhere in there he found the time to amass a 10,000 book library, do extensive historical research, and write than 100 books He was every bit as colorful as one of his characters, and I can t offhand think of anyone who lived a fuller life In some ways I envy the people who lived just as history was turning the corner into mo Proposed alternate title With These Hands I m Going to Punch Your Face I like L Amour, but I think he thrives in a long form context, not in short stories.
