The readers can download The Lonesome Gods Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


The Lonesome Gods is Louis L'Amour's biggest and most important historical novel to date, a sweeping adventure of the California frontier. Here is the fascinating story of Johannes Verne, a young man left to die by his vengeful grandfather, rescued by outlaws and raised in part by the Indians of the desert. Strengthened by the love of two women—Miss Nesselrode, whose mysterious past fires her ambitions for the future and Meghan, a willful young beauty—Verne grows to become a rugged adventurer, a man strong enough to embrace the awesome power of the Palm Springs desert, and bold enough to stake a claim in the bustling world of opportunity that was early-day Los Angeles.



  • This story holds so much history and intrigue, capturing the essence of the land and the people who inhabit it. It has had a profound impact on my life, and holds a special place in my heart as it was my father's beloved book. He, being a part of the Mohave tribe, even had the opportunity to meet Louis while hunting quail as a child. The tales he has amassed throughout his life are a testament to the lasting influence of The Lonesome Gods. I encourage everyone to venture out and discover their own lonesome Gods, no matter where they may be, for they eagerly await your arrival.
  • Who hasn't experienced that primal fear from ancient times when gazing into the dark? Those introspective moments that make you ponder. Louis L'Amour is hands down my top author, and I could devour his books repeatedly.
  • I absolutely adore this book! The way Louis Lamour paints pictures with his words is downright mind-blowing. Having lived in Southern California myself and having explored many of the places mentioned in this book, it's incredibly nostalgic to read about them.
  • This book has an amazing plot that keeps you engaged from beginning to end. The action scenes are vividly described and filled with intense moments. It's a timeless masterpiece in the genre of western fiction.
  • Louis always keeps me hooked to the speaker just so I can soak in his vibrant portrayals of the land he's discussing. As someone who personally adores the desert, I found myself captivated once again by Louis' exceptional storytelling.
  • There's way too much deep thinking going on and not enough excitement happening in 'The Lonesome Gods'. The plot just seems to move along at a snail's pace, and all those lectures on philosophy really distract from what's actually happening. It's a real snooze-fest, unnecessarily long, and could have easily been condensed into a shorter, more engaging book.
  • This book, 'The Lonesome Gods,' is without a doubt, my absolute favorite of all time. It is incredibly well-written and has captivated me to the point where I have revisited its pages countless times throughout the years.
