9780061242922: The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard

Before he brilliantly traversed the gritty landscapes of underworld Detroit and Miami, Elmore Leonard wrote breathtaking adventures set in America's nineteenth-century western frontier—elevating a popular genre with his now-trademark twisting plots, rich characterizations, and scalpel-sharp dialogue.

No author has ever written more evocatively of the dusty, gutsy heyday of the American West than Elmore Leonard. This complete collection of his thirty-one Western tales will thrill lovers of the genre, his die-hard fans, and everyone in between. From his very first story ever published—"The Trail of the Apache"—through five decades of classic Western tales, The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard demonstrates the superb talent for language and gripping narrative that has made Leonard one of the most acclaimed and influential writers of our time.

About the Author:

Elmore Leonard wrote more than forty books during his long career, including the bestsellers Raylan, Tishomingo Blues, Be Cool, Get Shorty, and Rum Punch, as well as the acclaimed collection When the Women Come Out to Dance, which was a New York Times Notable Book. Many of his books have been made into movies, including Get Shorty and Out of Sight. The short story "Fire in the Hole," and three books, including Raylan, were the basis for the FX hit show Justified. Leonard received the Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA and the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. He died in 2013.

From AudioFile:

Those who enjoy Leonard's terse two-fisted style will savor his early work with Westerns. Cleverly cast with skilled actors and produced with sensitivity and style, this collection fits in any audiobook aficionado's collection. David Straitharn paints vivid and passionate word pictures, pushing the emotional envelope; Henry Rollins brings his burly reading style to the fore; William Atherton delivers a whiff of aural mesquite and rawhide while Tom Wopat lends a tough warmth to the proceedings. Each reader tackles his tale with professional zeal, and the marriage of voice to text makes this a consistently good listen. Leonard fans will be intrigued by signs of his future hipness.
