The Tall Stranger is a western novel by Louis L'Amour. It was written in 1957 and first published by Gold Medal Books. A filmed version starred Joel McCrea and Virginia Mayo. The story starts out in the 1860s with Ned Bannon coming across cattle rustlers who shoot him and leave him for dead, a group of wagon trainers finding Ned Bannon badly wounded and all alone take him in and are soon approached by Mort Harper, who tells them of a great new trail that is perfectly safe.

Fine white dust hung in a sifting cloud above the wagon train, caking the nostrils of animals and men, blanketing the sides of oxen and horses, dusting a thin film over men and women.

Fine white dust hung in a sifting cloud above the wagon train, caking the nostrils of animals and men, blanketing the sides of oxen and horses, dusting a thin film over men and women tretched on before them, endless and timeless. Red-rimmed and bloodshot eyes stared with dazed weariness into that limitless distance before them, seeing nothing to grip the eye or hold the attention. Long since all had been forgotten but the heat, the dust and the aching muscles. Each step lifted a powdery dust, stifling and irritating

Another Louis l’Amour classic, the Tall Stranger, fun read. The total stranger has all the elements of a good story, covered wagons and hard work, settling the west, with good and bad guys not clearly determined until all the cards are played. I recommend this book for all Louis l’Amour fans. The Tall Stranger is a very short book even by the L'Amour standard coming in at 126 pages.

I'd love to pick and choose roles.

Wagon trains heading west were forced to defend themselves against Indians, cope with injuries and illness, and struggle to find food. Louis L'Amour's 115 title-plus bibliography is astonishing on its own; even more so given the fact that his writing career did not start in earnest until his 40s. Simply being prolific, however, does not a bestselling author make. L'Amour's Western stories, as written by a real-life. There's Always a Trail, Home in the Valley, Monument Rock.

Everything has been said about Louis L Amour the best western writer ever in my opinion read every one of his books at least twice they have good stories plenty of action and heroes we would like to be.

All his books are very good, depending on your taste.
His critics are idiots. If one reads a book and is not impressed, don't read him again. Only a fool would criticize his works. Some of his work is good, most are outstanding. Reilley's LUCK, FLINT, SACKET BRAND and so on. 300 million sold plus or minus tells the truth.

It has been a long time since I've seen a new book by L'Amour. And I was not going to pass any of them up. I have read all of the Sacket series plus many of the books related to that series. I learn many years a go That Mr. L'Amour also wrote quite a few of the Hopalong Cassidy books. I have also read a lot of his Panama Jack books. I will continue to read and recommend his books to others.

Classic L'Amour. It follows the typical story line, but it does it pleasantly. At times I was impatient because I knew what to expect and didn't want to wade through some of the details to get to the fight or showdown.

L Amour had good knowledge of the old west along with words to describe his srories. Once you start resding. you cant out it down untilts finished. Plan on reading all of the novels which amount to over 200. He makes you feel your in the story while reading.

INMO Louise L'Amour is the best Western writer. The Tall Stranger is the third book of his I've read. Its an easy read. Read it in a few hours. This is one of his earlier works.

We see a wagon train heading out to California having problems. Up comes this handsome, charming man in white hat on his horse and tells them there is another route further south. Harper is a lying bad person. He routes the wagon train to a beautiful valley. The bad Harper has deadly gunfighters with him. He plans to use the settlers to start a war with the big valley/ranch owner Bishop so he can take the ranch for himself.

Our hero the tall stranger tells them don't go that way as you will have to fight Indians and a big rancher named Bishop owns the land and there will be trouble. Big Indian fight. and the tall stranger falls in love with a women on the wagon train.

Lots of gunfighting, and a huge fist fight seen. Lots of action. Anyone loving the wild west will like this book.

I won't ruin it for you by saying too much more. Only thing I've noticed so far with the 3 books of Louise L'Amour I've read there seems to be several patterns. Why in each of the books does a horse have to be shot and killed ( 2 good guys' horses and 1 bad guy's horse)? Also all 3 endings are typical and basically the same. I gave Sackett and Silver Canyon 5 stars but this one seems not as strong a character development as the others. The scenery and Western Environment description was fantastic as usual. Can't go wrong reading a Louise L'Amour book so far. The Tall stranger added to our family library. 4 stars.

I am not a Western enthusiast but I bought this short book on my kindle because of the reputation of Louis L'Amour and wanted to explore his style.
The story was a good but typical story about wagon trains and desperadoes and cowboys and such. An easy read and I can see how Mr. L'Amour has so many fans.
I like Louis L`amour. Even though I know pretty much most of his story lines. I still enjoy reading them. Would buy again. I have been slowly collecting them over the years. And often re read them when not feeling well. Just what I do...
