Education of a Wandering Man

Education of a Wandering Man was published just after the death of the famous western writer, Louis L’Amour. In essence, the book is his autobiography. L’Amour is best known for his more than one hundred works of fiction. If you are a L’Amour fan, you find the seeds for the ideas of his stories in his life experiences. Leaving home after dropping out of school in the eighth grade, L’Amour literally traveled the world. Additionally, he was a voracious reader consuming classic works of literature in such voluminous numbers that a Ph.D. in world literature would be impressed.

The reading of Education of a Wandering Man is a real treat for a general audience and especially for those who enjoy the Western genre. I have admitted that sometimes I buy a book simply because of the title.
