The first of its kind, a unique volume of twenty-one unpublished gems from one of the twentieth century's most popular and prolific writers
Using his father's handwritten notes, journal entries, and correspondences, Beau L'Amour uncovers how and why many never-before-seen manuscripts were written--and speculates about the ways they might have ended.
"A valuable addition to L'Amour's] literary legacy."--Booklist Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures is a project created to release some of the author's more unconventional manuscripts from the family archives. In Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures: Volumes 1, Beau L'Amour takes the reader on a guided tour through many of the finished and unfinished short stories, novels, and treatments that his father was never able to publish during his lifetime. L'Amour's never-before-seen first novel, No Traveller Returns, faithfully completed for this program, is a voyage into danger and violence on the high seas. These exciting publications will be followed by Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures: Volume 2. Additionally, many beloved classics will be rereleased with an exclusive Lost Treasures postscript featuring previously unpublished material, including outlines, plot notes, and alternate drafts. These postscripts tell the story behind the stories that millions of readers have come to know and cherish.
