Classic Westerns

Even if you don't like Westerns, the classic Western novels might transcend your taste buds. Here is a list of Westerns that I have read, or plan to read, because of their exceptional reviews or reputation. On this list, but not in the library: The Shootist by Swartout and Hondo by Louis L'Amour. The complete version of Log of a Cowboy by Andy Adams is also recommended, but the BPL only has Trail Drive, an incomplete version of the novel that is not recommended.
