Louis L’Amour said that the West was no place for the frightened or the mean. It was a “big country needing big men and women to live in it.” This volume presents five more of L’Amour’s fine short stories about the West.
The Paiute in “The Nester and the Paiute” is someone Sheriff Todd has been keeping his eye on. In “His Brother’s Debt”, Casady had reasons for not going to town, but he couldn’t say no to a lady. In “Four Card Draw”, Allen Ring wins a small ranch in a poker game, but Marshall Bilton says no one is allowed to live there. In “The Turkeyfeather Riders”, Jim Sandifer knows that what he plans to do will forfeit him the gal he loves. In “Riding for the Brand”, Jed Asbury finds an abandoned covered wagon and decides to finish what the former owners had intended to do.

5 Louis L'Amour Short Stories
Of the 5 stories I liked the first one best: "Riding For The Brand".
Then came: "Four Card Draw", "His Brother's Debt", "The Turkeyfeather Riders", and "The Nester and the Paiute", which has an amusing ending.
The narrator's deep voice was great for male voices, but left a lot to be desired for female voices, although it did not detract from the stories.
I have not been disappointed by any Louis L'Amour stories.
