A shout out to a nearly forgotten genre, the Western! In prep for an upcoming book club I picked up Louis L'Amour's Mustang Man, a simple story about a lone cowboy making his way in the West who gets wrapped up in a chase for gold. This is a fast-moving story with strong characters who live by a simple code. There is even a hint of romance, but nothing too sappy. Fans of Robert B. Parker will enjoy. An enjoyable story when you are looking for something not too complex.
