Under the Sweetwater Rim by Louis L'Amour



CHAPTER 1. THEY HAD RIDDEN twenty miles since daylight, and at the end of their day had come upon disaster. Two hundred feet below and half a mile away the wagon train lay scattered on the freshening green of the April grass. Death had come quickly and struck hard, leaving the burned wagons, the stripped and naked bodies, unnaturally white beneath the sun. The man in the ill-smelling buckskins brought his mount alongside Major Devereaux. There was fifteen wagons. You can even count 'em from here.

Under The Sweetwater Rim is a great story by Louis L'Amour. The story is set in the late 1860s/early 1870s it has many characters but the main characters are Tenadore Brian,Mary Deveraux,an Rueben Kelsey. Ruben leads a band of outlaws they raid a wagon train to find a 60,000 dollar shipment of gold but it ain't there. Under the Sweetwater Rim" is a good, if not typical read. I honestly don't feel I can really judge L'amour based on this book. This feels like one of many "dime novel" Westerns written to make a buck. It reads like an hour long TV episode, with little significant character development.

Deep in Indian country, Major Mark Devereaux and his men find a grisly scene: a wagon train savagely attacked, with no survivors. One of the wagons originally with the group is missing; in it is a fortune in gold and Devereaux’s daughter, Mary. The slaughter, Devereaux learns, was not the work of Indians but of a murderous outlaw band. Join Our Mailing List! Keep up to date on Louis L'Amour news, new book releases, articles and much more.

Has Louis L'Amour ever written a bad book? If so, I have never read one, and in fact this is one of his best. The setting is deep in Indian country - 200 miles west of Fort Laramie and right from the start the master of the western genre has your concentration as much as a wagon master going through hostile territory. In fact that's how the story starts with a grisly massacre of a wagon train party. The slaughter, however, was not the work of Indians but rather a vicious bunch of owlhoots who have made off with a missing wagon, a fortune in gold and the daughter of Major Devereaux. The wild card is Lt. Tenadore Brian,who is riding with the missing wagon against orders. In the hands of the master story teller those few ingredients are enough to weave a engrossing drama of the Old West that makes the reader keep going as relentlessly as Major Devereaux's career in the cavalry or with the determination of Lt.Brian to get the crooks - and the girl. For fans of L'Amour, and westerns in general, 'Under the Sweetwater Rim' is indeed sweet reading.

Louis L'Amour writes the consummate western story; good guys, bad guys, horses, fightin', shootin' and sometimes a bit of romance. He also weaves well-researched backgrounds, actual geography, towns, trails, Indians, gunfighters, marshals extant at the time into the stories. In short, all of L'Amour's tales, including Under the Sweetwater Rim, are thoroughly engaging, entertaining, educational and enjoyable. I recommend this and his other books.

Louis L"Amour is at the top of the list for westerns. This book captures your attention right from the very first page. There are many new books that have been released since his death. They are still set in the western theme and a must read for us diehard fans! I have read everything he has written, even some over and over! You won't be sorry.

I always enjoy Louis L'Amour books but this was definitely one of his better books. Characters were well-defined and the story line was, as usual, very good. The book started with a wagon train slaughter which included the disappearance of Army gold and the wife and daughter of two Army personnel. Their story and the story of the father looking for his daughter is good, suspenseful and full of information about the area.

I would definitely recommend the book to anyone that enjoys L'Amour books and believe that even folks that don't tend to read much would enjoy this book.

This is another wonderful example of Louis L’Amour’s writing. This man puts other Western authors to shame. I am a fan of Westerns, based on my time, watching Gunsmoke with my maternal Grandfather. Kudos to Mr. L’Amour!

The way L'Amour compels me to keep reading speaks to the accuracy of period times, and his way with character development. I love learning about life in the frontier times. This books spends a bit of time addressing the interplay between abrutal outlaws versus the good guys. A good read.

Louis L'Amour in my humble opinion was the best Western writer ever. Part of that is the way he describes the terrain. Part is the way his characters are developed. His tales carry you into the story. I like other western authors as well but his will always be my favorites. This is a well written story and a great read that only takes a few hours to read.
The book is a classic L'Amour book. I could start any were in any of his books and know he wrote it. I have read every one twice and some over and over again. You just can't beat a Louis book.
