Louis L'Amour

Louis L'Amour was born Louis Dearborn LaMoore, March 22, 1908, Jamestown, North Dakota. He died June 10, 1988 in Los Angeles, California.

L'Amour was probably one of the most prolific writers ever, especially in the genre of Western Novels. But before he became a famous writer he traveled the world and worked at odd trades. He lived as a hobo, hitching rides on the Southern Pacific; worked as a cattle skinner in Texas; baled hay in New Mexico; worked in the mines of Arizona and Nevada; worked as a lumberman in Washington and Oregon; spent time as a merchant seaman; and more than held his own as a bare-knuckle prize fighter; and served as an officer in the U.S. Army during World War II.

His first western novel, Hondo, was published in 1953. He was soon writing an average of three novels per year, a pace that he kept up until the day he died; working on the final edits of his semi-auto-biographical 'Education of a Wandering Man'.

Unlike so many other authors of Western Novels, L'Amour had personal knowledge of the places in his stories. If he has a character drinking from a spring flowing from behind a rock in a particular side-canyon in Arizona, you can rest assured that Louis drank from that same spring.

Many of his novels have been adapted to the movie screen, including many of the famous Sackett family, mentioned in twenty-two of Louis L'Amours' books.
