Barnabas Sackett is a man of independent mind and strong spirit, a farmer and hunter who is willing to be a fighter and adventurer in his search to find and make his place in a new land." "He had success with poetry, articles on boxing and writing and editing sections of the WPA Guide Book to Oklahoma, but the dozens of short stories he was churning out met with little acceptance. Finally, L'Amour placed a story, Death Westbound, in a magazine that was very much the Playboy of its day. "10 Story Book" featured what was supposed to be quality writing (Jack Woodford, author of several books on writing, is published in the same edition as L'Amour) alongside scantily attired, or completely naked young women. Several years later, L'Amour placed his first story for pay, Anything for a Pal, published in True Gang Life. Two lean disappointing years passed after that, and then, in 1938, his stories began appearing in pulp magazines fairly regularly. Along with other adventure and crime stories, L'Amour created the character of mercenary sea captain Jim Mayo. Starting with East of Gorontalo, the series ran through nine episodes from 1940 until 1943. Surprisingly, given his later career, L'Amour wrote only one story in the western genre prior to World War II, 1940's The Town No Guns Could Tame.". Fine in Fine dust jacket .
