These books may drive you crazy.   
What they contain is mysterious and fascinating, frustrating and more often than not, tragically incomplete. It is a look behind the curtain into a world of what might have been. It is a look under the hood at how the machinery of a writing career that lasted over half a century functioned.  
It is also a look at how the sausage was made, the ugly process of creating the raw material for the things we enjoy the most. This is the story of the debris, the chaff, the waste heat that a writer produces. The things that never make it to the editor’s desk. The stack of pages never graced by a final “The End.”
Louis L'Amour's 
Lost Treasures 
Volume 1 & Volume 2 
Within these pages is some of the most interesting material from what is a considerable archive. Many of these are stories that Dad discussed with us around the dinner table, others were completely unknown and inspired a good deal of research.  
Louis' FIRST Novel 
The sea gave Louis access to the world. He visited England, Japan, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Arabia, Egypt and Panama … in a time when few people traveled. Yet his world was quite a cosmopolitan place full of different races, religions, histories and governments.  
The world is a place from which no traveler returns.

The Odds and Ends 
of Louis' Mind

Here are shorter pieces, the false starts, the concepts and ideas that never found a voice.
