I just re-read Callaghen, by Louis L'Amour. It is in some ways a typical L'Amour tale, with the individual courage and cunning of the hero pitted against the forces of evil. One of the things that I love about L'Amour is that he uses the setting of the story as one of the characters, so descriptive and so important to the furthering of the tale. The thing that caught my attention this time through is that Callaghen had served in faraway lands, but this time I was more aware of the places he had been because they have been a part of our history so much in recent years, especially Afghanistan! That added to my enjoyment of this visit with Callaghen.
