L’Amour’s father was a very hardworking man who was involved the trading of farm machines, practiced veterinary and held office positions.

Analysis

Louis L’Amour Failed to command respect in some quotas because of his western genre, but still succeeded in writing between various genres and selling millions of copies. His writing styles appeals mostly to adventurers’ people, who love thrilling moments (“Adventure in the Great American Tradition”). His novels like Hondo, how the west was won and gloves for a Tiger are all adventure booksand real thrillers

L’Amour’s writing was mainly influenced by his experience in the war field during the Second World War. His writings are important today because readers can compare his work with the modern literary works. One thing I love about his works is that he was able to capture the imagination of his readers and make them experience what his book characters went through.
