Summary "A collection of Louis L'Amour's never-before-seen fragments, film/TV scripts and treatments, notes, short stories, and advice to other writers, compiled and annotated by his son, that confirms his place at the very top of the pantheon of American writers. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at how Louis wrote the short stories, novels, literary and motion picture treatments, notes, and outlines that he wasn't able to finish or release in his lifetime. Annotations and commentary by his son Beau give readers even more insight into how he approached writing and story creation. This keepsake volume--the first of two--features the unforgettable moments and timeless characters that readers know to expect from Louis."-- Provided by publisher.
