This was apparently the first book he published, after having wandered the world as a sailor, soldier and boxer from the age of fifteen. It was in Smoke From This Altar that L'Amour first gave public voice to his now-celebrated spirit of wanderlust.

A fine, as new copy in near fine jacket. Quarter-bound in beige cloth on beige boards; lettered in copper on the spine; beige endpapers; headband. This is is a good book to have close to you so you can read one of his poems whenever you want. L'Amour's poems aren't great, but most of them are pretty good, and a few are even very good. The dust jacket is mostly crisp and clean with the exception of two beginning edge tears along with some light ground-in dirt to the edges. Like the short stories in his classic, million-copy-selling Yondering, and his best-selling memoir Education of a Wandering Man, the poems in this book are inspired by his experiences and memories of his journeys across oceans and continents.
