Product description

Review

"Lamb knew how to write straight-ahead adventure the way Michelangelo knew how to paint."--S. M. Stirling-- (03/06/2009)

"As a young writer and history buff, I loved Harold Lamb, and this reprinting of the seventeen so-called "Crusader stories" from Adventure Magazine reminded me why. . . . His imagination, his gifts of plot and action writing, and his passion for worlds and peoples not white, not western and not like us, make the book a delight to read."--Cecelia Holland, Historical Novels Review--Cecelia Holland "Historical Novels Review "

"Rest assured that every single solitary tale within the covers of Swords From the West is worth reading."--Deuce Richardson, Cimmerian--Deuce Richardson"Cimmerian" (09/30/2009) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
