Louis L'Amour is now one of the most iconic western writers of all time, but once upon a time he was Jim Mayo, a regular writer for the pulps. And some of the stories he wrote in those days stuck with him enough that he revised and expanded them into novels.

"The Trail to Peach Meadow Cañon" first appeared in Giant Western in October, 1949. The text was expanded and substantially changed when it subsequently was published as an original paperback titled Son of a Wanted Man in 1984.

"The Trail to Crazy Man" was first published in West in July of 1948, and was later expanded into a paperback original published by Ace Books in 1954 as Crossfire Trail, and was later made into a film starring Tom Selleck. But there was a special magic to the original stories, and after research and restoration, the stories appear here in their original version.
