Louis L'Amour Country

Oh
to
be in
Louis L’Amour
country: big sky – crisp
air – checked shirt – back on saddle –
sipping black brew from
metal cup.
Dogies
low-
ing.


– Len "Office Cowboy" Blumfeld

How'd this one come about? Through an excursion to romance country (Saoirse Redgrave's Write that Romance! blog) and coming upon a Louis L'Amour book cover there. Instant sprouting of the cowboy stereotype material seed stored in my mind into a fib...

Very cool!

Thanks for stopping by -- L'Amour's covers do harken back to that unique time and location of the legendary "Ol' West." Of course, they should since that seems to be what he's known for writing... ;-)

Eventually I'll read some of them... :-)

Neat site!
