Summary (From the publisher):

From the coasts of Brazil to the borders of Tibet to the very heartland of America, May There Be a Road gathers ten previously uncollected stories that capture the magnificent scope and sense of epic adventure that epitomize Louis L’Amour's classic fiction.

In these vivid settings L’Amour takes us into the pivotal moments when lives are altered forever, when men and women face a deadly enemy, find a kindred spirit, or confront their own mortality.

Among the unforgettable characters we meet here are a hard–living, hard–drinking freighter captain whose penchant for flying may change the course of World War II... A lonely frontiersman who unexpectedly finds himself the protector of two orphans... A boxer who accepts a gambler’s payoff and then must fight to redeem himself... A detective willing to believe an unproven story in order to discover a painful truth hidden in a small town. And in the title story L’Amour weaves the powerful tale of a young Tibetan khan who leads a band of horsemen on a daring escape across treacherous mountain terrain. At stake is the survival of a people and an ancient way of life.

Evoking the American spirit of bravery, pride, adventure, and self–reliance as few writers have, this extraordinary volume proves once again that L’Amour has set a standard yet to be matched.
