Louis Dearborn L'Amour (rhymes with tour; March 22, 1908 – June 10, 1988) was an American writer. He wrote Western novels (though he called his work "frontier stories"), historical fiction (The Walking Drum), science fiction (Haunted Mesa), non-fiction (Frontier), as well as poetry and short-story collections. Many of his stories were made into films. L'Amour's books remain popular. At the time of his death almost all of his 105 existing works (89 novels, 14 short-story collections, and two full-length works of nonfiction) were still in print, and he was "one of the world's most popular writers".
