Here is a very special Louis L'Amour book, a book to be treasured by his many fans and by a whole new audience of readers, for Frontier is an eye-opening celebration of the American land, including 213 pages of text and colorful illustrations of the beautiful West.

"Frontier is a very special book for me.

For more than thirty years in more than two hundred novels and short stories, I have written about many aspects of the American frontier experience--from the courageous explorers and early settlers of the sixteenth century on through the succeeding generations of the builders and shapers who followed them across the continent. However, for a long time, I have wanted to temporarily leave behind the boundaries of fiction to share more directly with my readers some of what I have learned and observed about our great North American land during a lifetime of study and appreciation.

This land, which we hold in trust for future generations and which is ours to improve while we live, is a remarkable land. The landscape has enormous variety, which sometimes escapes visitors. In the twenty-five essays that follow I have tried to offer a few brief aspects of the history, geology, excitement, wonder, and overwhelming power of this land."
--Louis L'Amour, from Chapter I
