Trouble was following Flagan Sackett with a vengeance. Captured and tortured by a band of Apaches, he had escaped into the rugged San Juan country, where he would try to stay alive until his brother Galloway could find him.
But the brothers were about to find worse trouble ahead. Their plan to establish a ranch angered the Dunn clan, who had decided that the vast range would be theirs alone. Now Galloway and Flagan would face an enemy who killed for sport, but as long as other Sacketts lived, they would not fight alone.

If you enjoy western titles, this will not disappoint you. Add this book to your library, if only to have one of Louis' better stories in your possession.
Again, I find the everyday struggle of life back then a marvel, even when the main character is doing simple everyday tasks. L'Amour engages the reader in a quiet gentle manner.
Pure Sackett gumption!
The Sky-liners, hunt one Sackett and you hunt them all! Meet Galloway here, and love the desert. Survival ih the desert is a task never to be mastered, and never guaranteed; but, you'll get no better training on survival than L'Amour on the subject. For those who love the desert as I do, it is refreshing to see taught survival skill put to work, and a few extra tricks to boot, and don't forget to study your back trail, especially in the mountains.
Nolan Sackett because I enjoyed the Paladin series on TV, and he's the man.
Not enough can be said about Sackett family values. In a world that's become dog eat dog, and looking out for number one. There's a sense of comfort in the Sackett world where knowing your 'family' has your back extends to cousins you've never met, and a gunslinger cousin that still has your back, even when you're on opposite sides of the fence.
Can one be on book 15 and still say "New, to the Sacketts"? Probably not, the Sackett family values don't stray too far from the values taught by Barnabas Sackett in book 'one' of this series: 'Sackett's Land', so if you fell on this one and you're new to "L'amour" as I still am, there's the place to start. The L'Amour site gives the books and stories in the proper reading order, which is not the order written, this makes for very easy finding.
Every book, except one so far is performed by men appropriately selected for their voices. I enjoyed 'The Sky-liners" and "Galloway" very much as Jason Culp does a passable job of performing a less than husky voiced woman! ;-) "The Sackett's" series are so far the only L'Amour books I've read. This is a great place to become a "L'Amour" fan. Travel through American History the fun way, and read to become a true American Pioneer yerself!
Audible would do well to have an option to see books, in order by series within Authors, the Author's site is a must for maximum reading (ahem: listening) pleasure.
