Book Review: “With These Hands” by Louis L’Amour

With These Hands by Louis L'Amour

With These Hands: Stories
by Louis L’Amour
Richard Jr.‘s review Jun 08, 2021  ·  edit
it was amazing bookshelves: human-interest, short-stories

A refreshing set of short stories from an author whom I had stereotyped as a writer of Westerns. Now I find that his life included work as a seafarer, WW2 veteran, world traveler, boxer and much more. The man draws on his experiences world-wide to create these glimpses of life, adventure, trials and tribulations and war in short stories that will keep you entranced for many and evening. i fond it best to read and absorb one story at a time, rather than binging on the whole book all at once. My favorite in this compendium is “Voyage to Tobalai” a true to life story of a tranp steamer and her cargo braving the East Indies as the Japanese surge through the area and attempt to pull an ambush on American warships. This is a book to read—set down—cogitate—read—set down—cogitate— in order to feel the fullness of L’Amour’s amazing skills and powers as a writer.
