What is this book about?
Conagher is one of Louis L’Amour’s best. The setting is southwestern Colorado in the late 1800’s at a time when our country is growing. Westward lies plenty of land and if a man or woman is willing to work hard and take risks the sky is the limit.
The main characters are Evie Teale and Con Conagher. Evie is a widow, who along with her stepson and stepdaughter, run an isolated stage stop. Con is a drifting cowhand who finds himself working for a small cattle ranch battling a larger outfit for control of both land and water. Circumstances throw the two together and they soon realize they have a lot in common.
