Westerns @ BPL - Louis L'Amour

Celebrate Rodeo Week in Brooks with the Brooks Public Library. This week we’re introducing you to the Westerns genre and showing you titles and authors that you may be missing out on.

What is a ‘Western’? The western genre comprises of stories set in the latter half of the 1800’s in the American Old West, hence the name. Some Westerns are set as early as the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. Westerns often portray how difficult life was for frontier families. Reoccurring stock characters include solitary cowboys, U.S. cavalry soldiers, and indigenous peoples of North America.

Today’s western selection is perfect for readers who are new to the western genre. In his time, Louis L’Amour was considered one of the world’s most popular authors, and was most famous for his western stories – or as he liked to call them, ‘Frontier Stories’. Born in 1908, many of his 105 stories were turned into feature films and continued to be published today.

If you’re considering reading a western, you may one to try one of Louis L’Amour’s many books. To help get you started, here’s a list of his works available from the Brooks Public Library.

You can read more about the life of Louis L’Amour on his official website.
