A Man Called Trent
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2007
Duration: 5 hours 10 minutes
Early in Louis L'Amour's career, he wrote a number of novel-length stories for pulp-western magazines. Long after they were out of print, the characters of these early stories still haunted him, and so by revising and expanding these stories he created his first novels. Here is one of these early creations which have long been such a source of speculation and curiosity among his fans.
A Man Called Trent opens on nester Dick Moffitt lying dead where he was killed by King Bill Hale's riders. His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called "Trent," an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter.
"L'Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and more often with a desert heat wave boiling up from a sun-baked paragraph. A master storyteller....for reading under the stars."—Kirkus Reviews
