Hubs really likes Louis L'Amour, because he stays very in period with his language and characterisation. But, he's read pretty much all of them at this point.

He's going to be starting chemo pretty soon and, while I don't mind carting his entire LL collection to the hospital and back again as many times as necessary, it would be nice if he could have a few new ones that are similar, for days when he's feeling better. Is there anyone out there that writes in a manner similar to LL? He doesn't like Zane Grey, which is the only other name I know in Westerns.

Any help is greatly appreciated. There's not much else I can do for him at this point, it's a journey he has to make himself. But I can make sure he has the supplies to make it through the badlands. (So to speak...)
