Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“Even the earliest of his western yarns show Leonard to be a master storyteller.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Leonard has penned some of the best western fiction ever.” (USA Today)

Kurzbeschreibung

Before he brilliantly traversed the gritty landscapes of underworld Detroit and Miami, Elmore Leonard wrote breathtaking adventures set in America's nineteenth-century western frontier—elevating a popular genre with his now-trademark twisting plots, rich characterizations, and scalpel-sharp dialogue.

No author has ever written more evocatively of the dusty, gutsy heyday of the American West than Elmore Leonard. This complete collection of his thirty-one Western tales will thrill lovers of the genre, his die-hard fans, and everyone in between. From his very first story ever published—"The Trail of the Apache"—through five decades of classic Western tales, The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard demonstrates the superb talent for language and gripping narrative that has made Leonard one of the most acclaimed and influential writers of our time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Der wilde Westen ist cool 22. Oktober 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wunderbar dichte Geschichten über die wilde Zeit des amerikanischen Südwestens. Die Helden sind meist Männer mit einer lapidaren Lebenseinstellung, karg wie die Landschaft, aber auch geradlinig wie die Landschaft. Die Dialoge können gleich in ein Drehbuch übertragen werden, fast so als ob alle Geschichten schon für die Verfilmung geschrieben worden wären. Sehr schön!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Writing For 2-Cents A Word 25. Mai 2005
Von Kay's Husband - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Since mine is the first review of this wonderful collection of short stories from a master writer, the book must be one of the best kept secrets of contemporary publishing.

These stories were written during years of the mid-1950s through the mid-1960s for magazines of that period, prior to Elmore Leonard switching to a modern mode of crime writing for books.

Anyone familiar with HOMBRE, VALDEZ IS COMING, or THE TALL T will not be surprised with his talent for writing westerns. He has said he always liked western movies, and his first fledgling attempts at writing were therefore westerns. Growing up in that era, I clearly recall that westerns were almost at the forefront of both publishing and movie screen. Many of us growing up in those days of Hoppy & Roy & Gene & Lone Ranger comics, post-WWII paperbacks, and the local "bijou" theaters, remain western fans to this very day. On a personal note, I probably have well over one thousand paperback westerns in my library, collected over the years, and yes, Mr. Leonard's are all there.

So when this book came out I bought it immediately. The manner in which the publisher issued the book is above normal: inside the front and back covers are many of the magazine covers in color within which the stories appeared; also, there is a nifty map showing many sites in Arizona Territory helping one locate the area of individual stories.

This was an ambitious undertaking from both author and publisher, and one of love from the author I'm sure. If you have interest in Elmore Leonard, or the American fictional west, or both, you will not want to be without this volume.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard 15. Oktober 2007
Von Mr. Steven C. Stanga - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
True fans of Elmore Leonard, both in his western genre and his gritty crime/underworld genre, will need no recommendation from a total stranger to pounce on this book of his with excitement. What a wonderful addition to any library! His stories are highly readable, extremely realistic, and often result in a surprise ending that you never saw coming. And because they are short stories, they need to grab the reader's attention quickly, and they do just that. These are very enjoyable short stories, including "3:10 to Yuma". You'll be glad to own this collection. Trust me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Five star entertainment! 23. April 2005
Von K. J. Blake - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This CD set includes 11 unabridged stories by Elmore Leonard. Stories are read by Tom Wopat , William Atherton, David Strathairn and Henry Rollins. Included in the 6 disk collection which takes about 6 hours to read- or one trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, or halfway from Fresno to Phoenix ( my two frequent long distance drives) are the following stories:

Blood Money read by Tom Wopat

Only Good Ones read by Henry Rollins

Trail of the Apache read by David Straithairn

Trouble at Rindo's Station read by William Atherton

The Boy Who Smiled read by Tom Wopat

The Tonto Woman read by William Atherton

Hurrah for Captain Early read by Tom Wopat ( this one is also in the When the Women Come out to Dance collection read by Taye Diggs - the two renditions are interesting to contrast as the hero in the story is an African-American who served in the all colored 10th Cavalry division)

The Colonel's Lady read by David Strathairn

Saint With a Six Gun read by Henry Rollins

You Never See Apaches read by William Atherton

Three-Ten to Yuma read by Henry Rollins

For those familiar with Leonard's westerns you will see his favorite landscape- the rugged land of southern Arizona and Apache territory. The scrub grass, dust and blistering heat are a character unto themselves. This collection is aptly handled by a talented crew. I particularily enjoyed the dry delivery of Atherton known best as the obnoxious reporter from the Die Hard movies. David Strathairn has a more measured approach to the complex tales of life on the frontier, Tom Wopat cowboys up for his tales and Henry ROllins is fantastic giving voice to the rough and tumble lawmen of 100 years ago. Recommended for fans of westerns and Leonard alike!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Western Short Story Collection 18. Februar 2012
Von David I. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a collection of Elmore Leonard's thirty Western short stories. These stories were written at the beginning of his career. Several of these classic stories were turned into movies. The most famous story in the collection is "3:10 to Yuma" which was turned into a classic western film starting Glenn Ford and then horribly butchered and mangled into a remake starring Russell Crowe.

There are a number of other excellent stories here. Leonard does not use the normal stereotypes seen in so many western television shows and movies. "Tonto Woman" tells the story of a woman who has been rescued from captivity only to be exiled by society. "Hurrah for Captain Early" gives us a story rarely heard. How black soldiers saved Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders at San Juan hill.

These are all good stories. This was my first Leonard book and I enjoyed re-reading it as much as
I enjoyed reading it the first time.
