I do continue to admire Louis L'Amour, and his amazing ability to churn out literally hundreds of fresh stories without giving the reader feelings of deja vu. In this story, we've got lifelong friends who have been parted by the law, but not by personal inclination.

Bantam Books by Louis L’Amour. It was a simple matter of frontier economics. Bijah Catlow was a top-hand in any man’s outfit, so when he signed on with the Tumbling SS’s it was no reflection on his riding. He hired out at the going wage of thirty dollars per month and found, but the sudden demand for beef at the Kansas railheads turned Texas longhorns from unwanted, unsought wild creatures into a means to wealth and affluence

L'Amour is often taken to task by critics because of a now unpopular genre and also because his books like many authors are formulary

Ben Cowan and Bijah Catlow had been bound as friends since childhood  . L'Amour is often taken to task by critics because of a now unpopular genre and also because his books like many authors are formulary. Good guy, bad guy, pretty woman, confrontation and you know who is alive on the last page. All this is true, but he also has a gift for knowing the west, it's geology, it's wildlife, it's beauty, it's history, it's people and knows how to verbalize his feelings.

Ben Cowan and Bijah Catlow had been bound as friends since childhood. By the time they grew to manhood, Catlow had become a top cowhand with a wild streak. It took just one disastrous confrontation with a band of greedy ranchers to make him an outlaw. And when he crossed that line, it was up to U.S. Marshal Ben Cowan to bring him in alive--if only Catlow would give him the chance....
  • I'm not a regular reader of Westerns. I picked up "Catlow" because it's the basis for a horse opera of the same title, staring the interesting cinema bouillabaisse of Yul Brynner, Richard Crenna and Leonard Nemoy.

    I do continue to admire Louis L'Amour, and his amazing ability to churn out literally hundreds of fresh stories without giving the reader feelings of deja vu. In this story, we've got lifelong friends who have been parted by the law, but not by personal inclination. Ben Cowan may be a lawman, may have to figure just what Bijah Catlow is planning to do as his last big strike, and may have to bring him to justice; but that is just as much about saving his best pal from a hanging as it is about bringing Catlow back from Mexico to face the judge. Catlow does have a big plan in mind - for it to work, he'll not only have to escape from the Mexican army, a very angry senorita, his own unreliable men, Apaches, and a hit man hired by a rancher after Catlow for rustling - he'll need everything he's got, including, just maybe, help from his old pal Cowan.

    It's pretty exciting stuff, with some interesting encounters (that might lead to both men settling down) added in for good measure. The plot keeps moving, we have plenty of action, and the efforts of Cowan and Catlow are practical and authentic.

    (The movie was made in 1971, and stars Yul Brynner as Catlow, Richard Crenna as Cowan, and Leonard Nimoy as Miller, the hit man. I only saw pieces of it before, but after reading the book, I'm really intrigued.)

  • This story is very entertaining just like all the other books I have read from this author. There are many more of his stories I will have in the future. He was one of the best story tellers.

  • Every L'Amour book is terrific so I run out of comments. This was wonderful. The south of the border aspect added a great deal of interest. Can't get enough of these marvelous stories.

  • Love of the wild life but friendship keeps the two men fighting to level things out. Here is a wonderful tale of love conquers all. How boyhood buddies grow up to be nearly on opposite sides of the law but fight to maintain principles that are much the same and really care for each other in the midst of battle.

  • Im a Louis L Amour fan. Ive read many good books of his. This one had a weak storyline. But i know i would have enjoyed the movie with Yul Brynner better. That was an era of great Westerns.

  • L Amour had good knowledge of the old west along with words to describe his stories. Once you start reading, you cant put it down until its finished. Plan to read all of the novels which amount to over 200. He makes you feel your in the story while reading.

  • ALL Louis L'mour books are so freaking good it boggles the mind. This includes all his books not just the westerns. Love the one he wrote on Hopilong Cassidy and the ones about Panama Jones. They can take you away from this world to his.

  • Catlow is a Western novel by Louis L’Amour that is wonderful. Read it for yourself to see that I’m right.
