He's just an average cowpoke, down on his luck and looking for a job.

Reviews about Hanging Woman Creek (7):
Stan
Pronto Pike catches a ride on a freight train and meets up with Eddie Holt -- cook, boxer and best partner he's ever had. They take on a job guarding an overwintering herd of cattle lest they get rustled. Well, sure enough, the rustlers appear. The local ranchers gather a bunch of vigilantes to round up the rustlers....but what it really amounts to is covering up their own dirty work. One of Pike's friends, a nester, gets burned out and that's when Pronto gets good and mad.

Thanks to some great descriptive prose, you will be shivering right along with Pronto and Eddie and the Farleys as they try to keep from freezing and out of the clutches of the vigilantes. Maybe you can't quite imagine yourself in one of those saddles blowing on your fingers to ward off frostbite. But then again maybe you can. ;)

An interesting side point is the character, Lottie. The prospects for the mentally ill didn't amount to much back then, but Pronto steps up and gives Lottie some words of wisdom to point her in a new direction. Nice moment.

I put "no sexual content" simply because I feel their is only a hint of such in any Louis L'amour novel. I don't feel a certain sexual appeal among some of the characters is considered "sexual content." Kissing, hugging, noticing a woman "coming into her own" or taking a woman in a man's arms is as far as things go and I consider this natural for any of his stories. Some may disagree. There is violence; fist fighting, shootouts and ambush is part of the way western stories are told, but the violence is not graphic in my opinion. I wish there were better options for these categories. I buy these stories in kindle format and sometimes audible if the price is fair. I've been burned by a few novels but never by L L stories.

Excellent (and more introspective than the normal Louis L'Amour) story. The characters are believable (as much as I adore the Sacketts, in this book Mr. L'Amour explores a hero without extraordinary skills who, at the age of 30 may discover a direction for his life instead of just drifting) and the motivations ring true. The conditions and complexities of the (late) frontier are wonderfully brought to life. I think this book has become my new favorite!

It is all here: unscrupulous ranchers, evil rustlers, capable lawmen, a pretty girl, and a cowboy hero with a sidekick you wish would have more of a part to play. This is solid, Hollywood Western fare and there is nothing wrong with that. The hero cold have been played by Randolph Scott. .

Another good L'Amour book and one that I always found interesting because of the unusual characters. The main character Barney "Pronto" Pike, so called because he fights easily, is one of the few L'Amour characters who is not skilled at gunfighting. He's just an average cowpoke, down on his luck and looking for a job. A chance meeting with a black man in a similar position causes them to decide to travel together and they end up on Hanging Woman Creek fighting rustlers and other outlaws. At the same time, they are trying to figure out the identity of the mysterious killer who is back-shooting people. To make matters worse, Barney nearly gets hung for killing someone (who isn't even really dead) before it's all over. Lots of action.

Louis L'Amour is a good writer, who's books are predictable and fun to read. If you want unexpected plot twists and bad guys to be heros pick another author.

L'Amour always is good.
I love all Louis L'Amour books. I don't think he ever wrote a bad one.
