Author: Louis L'Amour
Genre: Western. :) Of course.
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Type: Fiction
Number of pages: 169
Time period: 1800's
Main characters: Shalako, Tats-ah-das-ay-go, Irina, von Halstatt
Exciting events: Gun fights, escapes, more
Passage from book: Shalako rolled to his knees. Unable to judge the position of the Indian in the darkness, he risked everything and slashed across in front of him, and felt the tip of the blade catch flesh. There was a muffled gasp and an iron grip seized his wrist. Using the powerful muscles of his bent legs, Shalako straightened sharply, jerking the arm up and tearing it free. Instantly he smashed down with a closed fist and felt it thud against flesh....
My overall opinion: A thrilling Louis. I should mention that in pretty much any book by Louis L'Amour, there is some mild swearing. D---, and occasionally God's name in vain. And often a kiss or two, though not really graphically described. Just sayin'.
