In 1876 Wyoming, the gun is the only law.

Con Vallian knew the best way to stay out of trouble was to mind his own business. Then he stopped for a cup of coffee at a stranger's campfire and found himself guiding the McKaskels, a family of greenhorn Easterners, across the prairie - fighting a pack of rustlers on one hand and some mighty unpredictable Indians on the other!

Saddle up for a rousing adventure tale by the incomparable Louis L'Amour. The Quick and the Dead tells the story of peaceful folks driven to action under the guidance of a mysterious stranger. It rivals Shane and Pale Rider as one of the best Western stories ever told.

Excellent book and one of his that is hard to put down. He weaves and spell-binds with words of a truly gifted author!
