Whenever you want an old school yarn, there’s no one better to turn to then Louis L’amour. Sell described as “…the man in the shadows of the campfire”, his characters are thick with personality. His stories echo an American past as romantic as they are frightening. Men who kill, good or bad. Women who love and wilderness on the edge of being settled. In Crossfire Trail, Rafe Caradec escapes the clutches of a ship captain. A captain who relies on shanghied sailors for labor. A shipmate asks Rafe to help his family and save the ranch, on his death bed.
Faced with unfair odds and the beauty of Ann, the dead man’s daughter, there can only be one outcome. Entertainment.
