In his extraordinary career Louis L'Amour captured the spirit of America as few writers ever have. A storyteller whose universal themes of bravery, pride, adventure, and self-reliance have echoed across generations, L'Amour set a standard that has yet to be matched. May There Be a Road brings together ten unforgettable stories previously uncollected and now offered for the first time in one extraordinary volume.

Ranging from the coasts of Brazil to the border of Tibet to the very heartland of America, May There Be a Road captures the magnificent scope and sense of epic adventure that flows throughout L'Amour's classic fiction. In these vivid settings Louis L'Amour takes us into those sudden moments when lives and futures are altered forever, when men and women face a deadly enemy, meet a kindred spirit, or confront their own mortality.

A hard-drinking, hard-living freighter captain with a plane and a penchant for flying discovers a cause worth fighting — and dying — for as a beautiful Brazilian woman helps him uncover a plot that could change the course of World War II. A lonely frontiersman unexpectedly finds himself the protector of two orphans in a desperate fight not just for land — or even survival — but for justice itself.

In the title story, "May There Be a Road," L'Amour weaves a powerful tale of a young Tibetan khan who leads a small band of horsemen on a daring escape with his betrothed across a treacherous mountain landscape of granite and ice. On their trail is a ruthless Chinese colonel and the might of the Red Army. At stake is the survival of a people and an ancient way of life.

From a boxer who accepts a gambler's payoff and then must fight to redeem himself, to a detective who is willing to believe a woman's unproven story about her brother's death in order to find one man's painful truth in the seamy underbelly of a small town, these stories are vintage Louis L'Amour.

A welcome addition to the libraries of his many avid fans or a spectacular introduction to the work of America's greatest storyteller, May There Be a Road exhibits the unbridled passion, the unsurpassed range, and the sheer genius of a true master working at the peak of his creative power.
