The classic story collection, now newly repackaged as part of Bantam’s Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures program—with never-before-seen material from Louis and his son, Beau L’Amour.
From the jungles of Borneo to the hidden canyons of the American West, from small-town fight clubs to a Parisian cafe at the end of World War II, these are tales of betrayal and revenge, courage and cowardice, glory and greed, as only Louis L’Amour can tell them.
Here are vintage stories of men and women who dare what others will never attempt, who fight for justice and dreams when the odds are against them. A charismatic boxer with quick hands and a hair-trigger temper itches to fight all comers-but if he’s ever going to get a shot at a championship, he will first have to fight the man who ruined his father. Here too, are tales of high adventure. A reluctant hero, hired to guide a diamond-hunting couple up a river ruled by headhunters and pirates, risks everything in pursuit of a legendary stone and the mysterious warlord who guards it. And in the title story, Off the Mangrove Coast, a young renegade who’d grown to manhood riding freights, prizefighting, and working mines sails the exotic South China Sea with a trio of dangerous men in search of treasure they figure to divide four ways. But when it’s time to dive for the prize, can he trust any of them to guard his back?
