His one weakness is prideful anger, which led him into the fatal duel, and into the knock-down drag-out fistfight that is the climax of the book. The use of coincidence to drive certain story elements does come close to breaking suspension of disbelief.
Recommended to Western fans, and those looking for a good manly adventure story. Once again L. L'Amour has shown what a true "Story Teller" he is.
Sackett Chronologly - My Order
I've been in some of the country he tells about. Of course this was in the 60's, 70's and 80's. But the terrain hasn't changed all that much. Especially the mountains. It's still just as beautiful. The tale talks for itself. Pure action and the showdown. I love it. This was Book 3 and I've already purchased Book 4. That's how much I've enjoyed this tale and I'm sure you will to.
I read this book when I was a kid. It was one of the first books I really read for fun, not school. My grandfather was a big Louis L'Amour fan.
He passed the books along to me to read after he was finished. I remember loving this book and couldn't get enough L'Amour books under my belt after reading it. I liked it, again. However, it wasn't quite as good as I remembered.

Oh to be that young again! For those wanting to read this book, go for it! It's a fun read, especially if you like L'Amour. If you don't and this is your first attempt at the genre, it might be a little rough.
L'Amour was churning these books out for a long time so they became very "cookie-cutter" but they are still fun to read. Just don't be expecting a real complex read.

This is classic L'Amour. A well educated hero who continues the L'Amour theme of characters driven to push west in early America. A treasure is to be found, a woman to be helped, and a stronger than normal villain who is unaware that our hero is equally up to the task. Yes, the pattern continues, but L'Amour spins a damned good story anyway and has you eager to turn the pages to see how our hero navigates his way through dangerous territory to eventual triumph.

As always, Louis reveals a knowledge of people, history, philosophy and human nature. While continuing to write Sackett stories set in the old west, Louis L'Amour also went back to establish the family's roots in Elizabethan England.

One was to have covered the Revolutionary War period, there was to have been a Mountain Man novel about Tell and Orrin's father, a story about Tell's experiences in the Civil War, and several others. Luckily, the stories were not written as an ongoing "serial" and so each can be enjoyed for it's own sake. In addition, Sackett characters appear momentarily in other L'Amour novels and there are two Tell Sackett short stories available.
Louis L'Amour's inspiration for the Sackett characters was a pair of young cowboys that pulled him out of a street fight in Tucumcari, New Mexico when he was fifteen. There was a problem loading comments right now. Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest.
