|Plot Summary of Night Over the Solomons|
|"Night Over the Solomons is a collection of short stories by Louis L'Amour. L'Amour usually deals with the American 'Wild West' but in this series, he gives the reader a glimpse of more modern cowboys, as it were. This collection focuses on the independent, brave, strong young heroes who fought for democracy during World War II. L'Amour draws from real-life characters to build fictional heroes who are willing to face danger wherever they are needed - from the South Seas to South America. Through these amazing characters, the reader can begin to glimpse the sacrifice and service that the real American heroes laid on the line."
Lucy Johnson, Resident Scholar
