There’s something about a western that just gets the blood pumping.  Maybe it’s the wide-open spaces, or the rugged individualism.  Whatever the reason, there’s no denying that westerns are one of the most popular genres of all time.  And when it comes to westerns, there are few things more iconic than the western novel.  From classic tales of outlaws and lawmen to modern stories of love and loss, western books have captured the imaginations of readers for generations.
