Louis L'Amour isn't a great writer by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a good one. Sometimes, he writes better westerns than "Utah Blaine," such as "Shalako" and "Hondo. Comparably, "Utah Blaine" is above-average, but conventional. L'Amour knew how to weave an exciting yarn, and he was thoroughly conversant with the elements of a good western. Best of all, he didn't weigh his prose done with excessive verbiage.

His westerns are old school, and his heroes were cut from the same fabric as John Wayne.

Well-known writers of Western fiction include Zane Grey from the early 20th century and Louis L'Amour from the mid-20th century.

Louis L'Amour isn't a great writer by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a good one. Sometimes, he writes better westerns than "Utah Blaine," such as "Shalako" and "Hondo." Comparably, "Utah Blaine" is above-average, but conventional. L'Amour knew how to weave an exciting yarn, and he was thoroughly conversant with the elements of a good western. Best of all, he didn't weigh his prose done with excessive verbiage. Rarely will you ever have to consult a dictionary for any words because you haven't heard them. He wrote with the lean, mean skill of Hemingway, with emphasize on propelling the story forward, even if his writing qualified as strictly pulp. "Utah Blaine" concerns treacherous vigilantes that murder legitimate cattle ranchers and seek to undermine the social structure of the territory. He tells a tale here that is nothing new, but you won't find yourself putting "Utah Blaine" down. The dialogue is cut and dried and some of it is catchy. The action is swift and certain. For example, one character is quote shot just above the belt buckle, while another has the tag on his tobacco pouch dangling from his shirt pocket perforated. Utah Blaine is an interesting character, but the villainous Rink Witter was the gleam of my eye. Rink behaves like a ruthless gangster, particularly when he kills one of the chief characters at a railway depot. He doesn't shoot him once or twice but several times. Rink reminded me of Bob Steele from the Howard Hawks detective movie "The Big Sleep." The villains in "Utah Blaine" don't suffer from being ordinary. They are all bad with varying degrees of evil running up and down the scale. Utah's sidekick Ortmann was a charismatic character and the fight between them was delineated with skill. Another character named Rip Coker seemed like a good guy version of Rink without Rink's psychotic attitude. L'Amour is easy to read, and you know that he knew what he was writing about when he described western settings, Indian practices, and history. His westerns are old school, and his heroes were cut from the same fabric as John Wayne. For example, L'Amour has a couple of lusty villains, and their craving for the heroine goes against the code of the west, and they pay with their lives for their sexual deviancy. Altogether, I enjoyed "Utah Blaine."

This was a fun story. And as the story says, it about this country growing pains. And many pains it had. Not just the country's as a whole, but as people just like us. Just trying to live our life's in peace and in friends. We never know when or how our life will effect someone else, but good men, good women touch some many others and this story is just such a story. Enjoy

Utah Blaine saves an old ranch owner from being lynched. The lynchers were just killing the old man to steal his land and cattle.
So the old rancher makes Utah a deal. If he will take over as ranch foreman while the old man go's elsewhere to wait out the results, then Utah can get enough land to start his own ranch. Blaine will have full authority written and signed by the rancher to handle it any way he thinks best.
So Utah agrees. And thus he walks into a hornet's nest where almost everyone in the surrounding area wanted to see the old rancher dead so they could get some of the best land in the county and or to steal the cattle.
It's an old fashioned shootemup. I found it lots of fun. Perhaps not as sophisticated as some of Mr. L'Amour's later work but well worth "riding the river" with him to hear this yarn.

This had an intriguing start, but as the story wore on there were so many vying factions to keep in mind. On top of
that, the number of shootout scenes was more than the average LL novel. I cannot say that I really enjoyed the
story as much as others by the same writer. I felt relieved when I reached the last page. That is not my usual
reaction to the end of L'amour novel.

I rate this high because Louis L'Amour is the only writer I have found that writes a good story with practical information included along the way. He does not give too much infomation when attraction between the man and woman comes about and you don't need to wash your mind with soap after reading. When I personally read a novel it is to relax, be entained for a little while and do not want to feel debased or embaressed while reading. I have tried several different authors lately but it seems the more graphic they can get in the personal places the better they believe people will like them. It is not true for a lot of readers. In fact that is a complaint I am hearing a lot among my generation.

What a story teller! L'Amour's books are great reading for every age group and gender. Utah Blaine is an extremely well done story. The action doesn't stop, the description of the scenery is spectacular, the characters are compelling, just great anything. Love it! Recommend it.

Well written western. L'Amour has a formula and he sticks to it, but it is still a fun read. Enjoy
Good read even after two dozen times.
Louis has an easy way of describing the environs that influence his characters.
