Reviewed by Herbert White - June 12, 2002

May There Be a Road is a collection of short stories by the world famous author of Westerns, Louis L'Amour. Although famed for writing riveting westerns, L'Amour was a prolific writer who wrote across a wide range of genres. In this book you will find a sampling of some of his best 'short' adventure stories, many of which have never before been published, including: The stories in this book take place in a variety of settings, ranging from Tibet to Brazil to the American West. These stories also showcase L'Amour's talents in a variety of fields. Here you will find stories about war, boxing, private eyes, cowboys, a host of strong (physically and intellectually) characters. Some will be old friends that you met in other works by L'Amour, and a few will be new. But one thing is sure, they are all memorable, rugged, self-reliant characters that will invigorate your imagination and bring you back to the days of your youth when all things were possible.

If this is your first introduction to the L'Amour's writing, you are in for a treat. He is a powerful writer whose prose is deceptively unpretentious. His writing is action-packed, and invigorating to read. I guarantee that once you start reading these stories, you'll not be able to put them down. And when at last you admit to yourself that you have been a glutton and consumed all these delectable tidbits in one sitting - you will have to be satisfied with the knowledge that there is one more volume of L'Amour's short stories yet to be read - With These Hands, which was published in large print in April of 2002. And, after this, you also have the over 100 books that L'Amour wrote to keep you occupied, at least for a week or two...
