Please suggest some of your favorites. I really like Louis L'Amour and Elmore Leonard. The two books I enjoyed a lot were The Daybreakers (The Sacketts), and Gunsights. Where the Long Grass Grows and Radigan were excellent as well. I can't get enough of this stuff! I'm losing sleep cause I can't put these damn books down at night while listening to music, lol.

I'm in the middle of a compilation of short stories called The Strong Shall Live, wish these stories were full novels!

Have any of you listened to the audio books? Are they any good?

Does Stephen King's the Gunslinger count?

Yeah, L'Amour and Leonard, all I could get.  Lately I ran through the complete Appaloosa series -  by Robert B. Parker you may have seen the movie.

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry gets my vote. Fantastic novel, as well as the rest of the books in that series (although I haven't read the others...)
 
Edit: Ha, didn't even notice the bump of five years. Why?

I'm interested in the genre too.  While my tastes run totally apart from Western, my grandfather loves them (L'Amour, etc) and father's day is coming up! :)
 
Bonus points for obscure-AND-good recommendations that he would never find in his small town.
