I read constantly, but had never read a Louie L'Amour book (or any Western novel) until I was given Keylock Man by my father-in-law.

I can relate to Matt and Kris knowing they were a match from their first meeting. My wife and I were the same. I would encourage any young man to start reading Mr. L'Amour's books. One person found this helpful. I read constantly, but had never read a Louie L'Amour book (or any Western novel) until I was given Keylock Man by my father-in-law. Tore was a gun-runner for the Finnish Underground in WW II, among other amazing things, so when he gave me this book as a gift, I figured I better at least scan it that night before going to sleep.

He had strength also, patience beyond that of most men, and some knowledge of the wild lands into which he rode. If the men who pursued knew nothing of him, he at least knew their kind, and was stronger because of this.

The posse was aiming to string Matt Keelock up from the highest tree. But Keelock was a real he-coon . shooting up their canteens like they was clay pigeons. If they'd had any sense, they'd have turned back before they even started, 'cause when Keelock ran out of funny business, there wouldn't be nobody left to laugh except the vultures.

The MAN CALLED Key-Lock was a man alone, and before him lay wilderness. Each rope was noosed for hanging, and each man was intent on the purpose of the chase. The solitary rider did not fear his aloneness, for he had the companionship of the mind.

The Key-Lock Man. by. Louis L'Amour. A hanging party rules the badlands and a lone rider races for his life

The Key-Lock Man. A hanging party rules the badlands and a lone rider races for his life. Falsely accused of back-shooting a man as he stood sipping whiskey in a saloon, Matt Keelock takes on a posse of angry men with no more backup than his smoking Colt and a sure-footed horse. It's one against many-but there's a hundred twists to every trail as the posse suddenly finds the hunters have turned into the hunted. With over 200 million copies of his books in print worldwide, L'Amour must be counted as one of the most influential writers of westerns in this century. He died from lung cancer on June 10, 1988.

The "Key-Lock Man" Western by master story teller, Louis Dearborn L'Amour, is one of my favorites from his extensive writings. I can relate to Matt and Kris knowing they were a match from their first meeting. My wife and I were the same. I would encourage any young man to start reading Mr. L'Amour's books

I read constantly, but had never read a Louie L'Amour book (or any Western novel) until I was given Keylock Man by my father-in-law. Tore was a gun-runner for the Finnish Underground in WW II, among other amazing things, so when he gave me this book as a gift, I figured I better at least scan it that night before going to sleep.
Big mistake! The book grabbed me from the first sentence, and I could not go to sleep until I had read it all the way through. It was rivetting.
Now, you have to understand that my first college degree was in English, so I have read ALL of the "classics" and most of the almost classics. And, like most of my fellow students, I generally detested them because most were just plain boring. L'Amour books have a better plot, interesting characters, and are just plain written better. They move you right along so you can't put them down.
Keylock Man is my favorite L'Amour book. Keelock is an honorable, honest man who is must rely on his own toughness, wits, cunning, and skills to stay ahead of a posse who is, for the most part, comprised of good men who do not themselves realize that their task is unjust. He does not want to hurt them, he simply wants to be left alone. Although unjustly persecuted, he shows remarkable restraint, and the posse members begin to waiver as they begin to realize that the Keylock Man is not acting like they think he will. In some ways, the interactions of the posse over the time of the chase remind me of the classic movie "12 Good Men," as the facts they discover force them to confront their own preconceptions.
Now, some people, including me until I had read this book, think that Westerns in general are trash novels, or L'Amour books are not good literature because they are enjoyable to read. But that's what the self-appointed critics said of Mozart, Edgar Allen Poe, Herman Melville (remember Moby Dick) when they were alive, and all three died penniless. Now they are seen as some of the greatest masters of their craft.
So the question is, do you want to miss out because you're trying to be as big a snob as some self-appointed expert, or do you want to experience a rivetting, entertaining, enjoyable reading experience?
Just be warned--if you're brave enough to buy this book, you'll soon be buying all of L'Amour's books. But you won't regret it.

My journey with Louis L'Amour began with a 25 cent book purchase in a recycle store not so many years ago. That one book changed my life. I had never before experienced a writer who could create such unforgettable imagery in a single phrase, or a simple paragraph. For me, Louis L'Amour consistently rates more 5 stars than any other writer I've ever read in my many years...and here he does it again.

Another very good novel by the best. I do not think there is a boarding. Look by Louis L Amour. I rec amend this to anyone who likes a good western.
  • Defolosk
Another five stars for Louis L Amour I think I have read all his westerns more than once and I never get tired of reading them.
  • I am hcv men
I loved this book when I was a kid because the female lead character was so strong. Kris is European and came to America because her boyfriend, who spoke slightingly of her, was challenged to a duel by her father, and killed him. Kris then killed the boyfriend and escaped to America. Matt Keelock meets her in the American West and ends up marrying her and helping her escape a man who is trying to kill them both. Lots of action, a little romance and a Western backdrop. A classic L'Amour tale.

Seriously?!? This is a Louie L'amour work! Of course it is an entertaining and educational effort, and very well presented treatise. Been reading him since the 50s, and I intend to continue with great enjoyment!
good read
