Date finished: December 19, 2015

A novelization by L’Amour from a screenplay based on his own short story. For a novelization it is very well written, but my interest waned a bit when I learned it was a novelization. I will need to watch the movie again, but I was picturing Brian Keith in the role more than John Wayne. Keith, especially in the Westerner, has more of a weariness and a sense of surviving some defeats that Wayne has trouble conveying.
