The dialect and pace was engaging. I love this Sackett starter story! Offers a different setting from the western genre he abides within.
this book took me back to a simple time in the world. I enjoyed the story. it's been a long time since I've heard a good, clean, wholesome story. this was it. I plan on reading the rest of the series. definitely recommend. L'Amour placed a fictional character in a real world and told a good story in the process.
Excellent! Over the years I have read nearly all of L'Amour's books and have listened to the recorded ones. What fun to bring the West alive as I travel to that"far and distant land" on my vacation.
I love these novels, there is alot of books he wrote on the sacketts,, I have read almost all them,, my favorite is to the far blue mtns I wish they would make a movie on it,, everyone should read these.
Audible initiates the creative imagery whereas television dulls the senses.
L'Amour was a switch from Jim Buther or Kant or Mark Twain. The Sackett's rank with The Frontiersman or The Call of the Wild, by Jack London. It was as much fun as reading Robert Service Poetry...When you just got to hanker down on the outhouse commode and need a good book and a Sears Catalog...this is the book.
A narrative historical fiction similar to the writings of Leon Uris, Zane Grey or Jack London.
He talks the talk and feeling into the text.
It made me think how well we have it compared to our ancestors.
Even though I am a Cultural Anthropologist, writers of the quality of Louis L'Amour can be as intellectually stimulating as Hemingway or Tolstoy and a lot more fun then Poe or Chekov.
