Louis L’Amour’s Library and Reading List | Art of Manliness

Posted by M. C. on October 12, 2017

When digging in to the best novels and authors in the Western genre of literature, there are a few names that pop up over and over again. Larry McMurtry, Cormac McCarthy, Zane Grey, and of course, Louis L’Amour. Over the course of his prolific career, L’Amour published over 100 books — most of them novels, but also over a dozen short story collections, and one brilliant autobiography, Education of a Wandering Man, which is more of a journal of his prodigious reading rather than a life telling (note: all quotes in this piece are from that book). Amazingly, not a single novel of his was published until 1951 when he was in his early 40s, though he had been writing poems and stories his whole adult life.

“To me success has meant just two things: a good life for my family, and the money to buy books and continue the education of this wandering man.”

Indycars season is done.  MotoGP is nearly so.  What to do during winter nights and weekends?

One could do worse than turning off the tube, especially on Sundays, and opening up a Louie L’Amour.

Be seeing you
