Hombre, published in 1961, and Valdez is Coming, published in 1970, were both adapted to film. Although Valdez is Coming received mostly mediocre movie reviews, Hombre with Paul Newman was a hit. Both are excellent novels.

Several other Elmore Leonard westerns are also offered for $3.79. I havenít yet read them, at least that I can remember, but you canít really go wrong with a Leonard novel.

These same books are $3.99 at B&N and Kobo. At BoB they are $4.35.
Hombre was a great movie.
One of my favorite Elmore Leonard books was Mr Majestyk. I liked the movie too.
