The classic L'Amour novel, unlike anything he's ever done before or since. For those who dismiss L'Amour as being a mere western writer this great book will change forever your opinion of him. It's filled with engaging charactors, facinating detail, and some of the best writing this wordsmith ever commited to paper. My only gripe is this; Back in the sixties when this book was first proposed L'Amour was faced with such resistance by his publisher that he shelved it for more than a decade. Originally it was to be the first book in a trilogy that would continue Kerbauchard's adventures. Unfortunatly L'Amour went on to that ranch in the heavens before he could do it. Still we have this one.

One word to sum up this book. Addictive. Totally, completely, amazingly addictive. I was up till 1:00 am because I HAD TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED NEXT! It just gets better with each reading. The period detail is fantastic. History teachers could certainly pick worse assignments although be warned, you may stand up your prom date because as stated before this book is impossible to put down!
Read it if you love any of the following:
History cool characters Love Swashbuckling Funny dialogue Fiendish villains (The guy at the end gets the prize as nastiest villain of ALL TIME)
Read it, you will never regret it although your prom date might.

I couldn't put this book down! At first it was unfamiliar country, but by the end of the book you know the land as well as Kerbouchard. It moves you through the story as if you were him. All of his adventures were astounding (however unlikely), but that made the story great how everything turns to a new threat within seconds, or a new lover, making you concentrate on keeping up with Kerbouchard, and keeping you from setting it down. I loved this book and like everyone else I want to find the sequel. It's driving me nuts!

As a librarian, I can tell you that this is one of L'Amour's most popular titles. Unfortunately, I get asked frequently if we have the sequel. To all of you who are looking for it, I have bad news: L'Amour said he was working on the sequel, but if he was, it was never completed, and it was never published. Alas, THERE IS NO SEQUEL.

The Walking Drum is the first historical fiction book that I've read. I was very impressed. I had read other books by L'Amour (the westerns), but decided they weren't my thing. When a friend recomended "The Walking Drum" to me, well... I cringed. But I eventually acted on faith. I am now a beliver.
The great adventures of Kerbourchard kept me in suspence all the way through. I would finish a chapter, and be too excited to see whay happened next to sleep!
Mr. L'Amour did an excellent job fleshing out the charecters as well as setting the scenes and moods. I enjoyed his attenton to detail, especially: the correct foods and titles of nobility. Geographical references were also a plus. I was able to trace in my head where Kerbouchard was traveling- enjoying the ride along.
I would recomend this book to anyone interested in culture, history, fiction and fantasy.
Excelent!

I was given this book for my twelveth birthday, and since then I have read it at least once a year. As a history major, I love to find books that reflect the truth of history in a beautiful and realistic way. Kerbouchard is a truly renaissance man who is on a quest to find his father, who may or may not be dead. In this quest, he travels mideval Europe, from the Christian lands of France to the Muslim lands of Spain and East to the steeps of Russia. What amazed me when I read this was that the middle ages were only the dark ages for western Europe; the Muslim lands were bright and alive and unoppressive. Kerbouchard's philosophy in life of learning for learning's sake is one I have adopted in my own travels through life.

This book opened my eyes. I am 24 years old, and I am the product of today's public education system. This book made me aware that the western world sees itself, and it's history, as the most important in the world. I should be imbarrassed to say that I did not know that the moorish people ruled over most of Spain for over 700 years. In fact, I had never heard of the moorish, nor had I had much data about Arabs place in history. This has started me on a research of history. My lack of education is apparent. I must do research on my own, though history books, and inspiration from writers like Louis L'Amour. Thank You Mr. L'Amour for the revolation.

I am 15 and I read alot. I love Tolkien and midevil setting books especially fantasy. I saw this book in a bag of books my neighbors were going to throw away. It's amzing how much a random book can touch your life. This was a superb book and I love to learn while I read. I am simply sorry to hear there is no sequel. The ending begs for a sequel and so do all the readers. Who knows, maybe with so many people wishing, a miracle just may come true.

I've also read _Last of the Breed_ by Mr. L'Amour, but hardly any of his westerns (that may change!). I thought both books were grand, and would easily rank them together, but the crucial question for me is: did he ever intend to write a sequel to _The Walking Drum_, and if he had, where is it?! He had left us on such a cliff-hanger (seemingly, though it may have only been my desire not to have it end) that I was sure there would be more...

L'amour is a master storyteller. Indeed, he is the best I have ever read. He is not, however, Homer, or Shakespeare, nor did he intend to be. He wrote, in this story, the best historical tale that has been told in our time. You will note among these reviews that there are only two kinds among them: those who give the book the highest rating, and those who give it only one or two stars. I could not give a book a stronger reccommendation.
