Random Thoughts:

You get a hankering for nice things if there’s much to you. It seems to me that first a man tries to get shelter and food to eat, but soon as he has that he tries to find beauty, something warm the heart and the mind, something to ease the thoughts and make pleasurable the sitting in the evening.

– Louis L’Amour from the book, Galloway

Random Thoughts:

One of the best descriptions of the West appears in Louis L’Amour’s, The Sky-Liners:

Flagan Sackett states:

“This was an uncomplicated country, as a new country usually is.  Folks had feelings and ideas that were pretty basic, pretty down to earth, and they had no time to worry about themselves or their motives. It was a big, wide empty country and a man couldn’t hide easy.  There were few people, and those few soon came to know about each other.  Folks who have something to hide usually head for big cities, crowded places where they can lose themselves among the many.  In open western country a man stood out too much.

If he was a dangerous man, everybody knew it sooner or later; and if he was a liar or a coward that soon was known and he couldn’t do much of anything.  If he was honest and nervy, it didn’t take long for him to have friends and a reputation for square-dealing; he could step into some big deals with no more capital than his reputation. Everybody banked on the man himself.

Once away from a town, a man rode with a gun at hand.  There were Indians about, some of them always ready to take a scalp, and even the Indians accounted friendly might not be if they found a white man alone and young buck was building a reputation to sing about when he went a courting or stood tall in the tribal council.”
