BLOOD IN THE DUST
The open West was a land where wanderers could find themselves a home—a home to fight for, to be changed by, sometimes to die for. Jed Asbury was one such journeyman, taking on the identity of a dead man. Allen Ring was another: he’d won his plot of land in a card game only to find he had to win again with a gun. From a has-been boxer to a ranch hand taking on his bosses’ troubles, the characters in these classic Louis L’Amour short stories are all “riding for the brand”—staying loyal to what matters, staking the West with their courage and their blood.

Great book with great stories, Lamour at his best!
Riding for the Brand is an absolutely great collection of L'amour's short stories. The stories are easy to read and only take about 15 minutes each. Every one is different and filled with action and suspense. I've read nearly everything L'amour has ever written and Riding for the Brand is a fine example of the author's abilities.
