Clay Bell spent the last six years fighting Indians, rustlers, and the wilderness itself to make the B-Bar ranch the prize of the Deep Creek Range. But Jud Devitt, a ruthless speculator from the East, now threatens everything Clay has worked for. Devitt, holding a contract with the Mexican Central to deliver railroad ties, wants to harvest timber off the land where Clay grazes his cattle. Backing Devitt are shady politicians, a dishonest banker, and fifty of the toughest lumberjacks in the county. But as Colleen Riley, Devitt’s fiancée, realizes the brutal game he’s playing, her disapproval of his actions, and Clay Bell’s obvious integrity and charm, pull her toward a destiny that will tip the scales in their bloody battle over timber and cattle.… (més)

A stranger arrives in a small western town with a score of lumberjacks on payroll and the intent to cut down a growth of virgin timber before the government can stop him.

While a little slow to start, I felt this is one of the author's better stories. ( )

Wow that was dull. ( )

Few could claim to have read all of Louis L’Amour’s more than 120 books but I’ve read a fair number, including the entire Sackett series, a couple of the Hopalong Cassidy novels, and other of his individual novels. It is with this background that I say “Guns of the Timberland” ranks with “Last of the Breed” as the most enjoyable.

The writing and plot are pretty much what you would expect. If you’re looking for an innovative plot or a focus on exquisite language – keep looking. This book offers you the predictable western plot. The valiant hero makes a desperate stand against almost insurmountable odds while the breathtakingly beautiful damsel gradually changes from bitter (or at least indifferent) enemy to soon to be wife. The story gets off to a slow start as L’Amour focuses on setting up the situation. His reliance on “telling” instead of “showing” contributes to the rather flat first third of the book.

However, there is one feature I found to be a refreshing departure from L’Amour’s formulaic approach. In the Sackett novels in particular, a member of the Sackett clan becomes entangled in a desperate situation. Once the situation is established, L’Amour introduces additional Sacketts in distant locations who learns of the difficulty. They immediately depart to offer assistance, and are depicted periodically as riding to the rescue. By the time they arrive, however, the original Sackett has singlehandedly emerged victorious. The introduction of strong supporting characters that eventually turn out to be irrelevant was always a great disappointment.

In “Guns of the Timberland” L’Amour reverses the formula. He introduces several strong characters, but his depictions are sketchy because me “tells” us they are strong instead of demonstrating their strengths through any action. In the end, however, many of them have a minor part in the final confrontation. I enjoyed the opportunity to see these characters pay at least a minor part. ( )

I’m only just getting into westerns and when a family member that reads a lot of them was moving, he gave me a couple of bags full. I’ve been slowly working my way through them by reading one a month and so far this is one of the better ones I’ve read.

With it being such a short book, I don’t know what I can really say about it. Unlike my last L’Amour novel, the length didn’t bother me because this one didn’t take place over years. The characters were interesting, I enjoyed the plot and the writing was great.

I’m still not loving westerns but every month they seem to get a bit better and now I’m starting to look forward to the next one. ( )
