    "Great Story and Another Great Performance"

    Another great book. Jubal finally finds his "mate", but still doesn't completely settle down. Fast action all the way from beginning to end. Very well narrated by John Curless, as always. Don't miss this one.....

    "Reads slower than other Sackett series books"

    Gotta love Louis L'Amour books - such quick easy reads! This one dragged on a bit, but if you are reading the series, you need to read this one anyway. :-)

    "What historical fiction should be"

    My father exposed me to L'Amour when I was a child. Dad's favorites where Westerns like Hondo. I was aware of the Sackett saga, but hadn't really got into them until Audible. If you find Curless difficult give him a chance through a few chapters. The narrator of these stories shouldn't sound like John Wayne. Jonn Curless it spot on. What can you say about L'Amour he was a master story teller and the The Sacketts is his masterpiece. I have listened to over 65 titles of various genere, but this is one of the rare ones I will listen to again.

    "Sackett Series"

    Our family LOVES the Sackett Series. It's to bad that Louis died before he could finish all he intended in the series. The history is fasitating, the chacters are real as you listen to the story line. Each book goes along with the others but does not have to be in order to understand the story. We have listened to several of the stories more than once. In fact we had most all of the Sackett books on tape or CD and are now purchacing them all over again through Audible. Anyone interested in early American history and lore will appricate all of the series. Jubal Sackett is the longest of the books in the series, and our favorite, so far.

    "My favorite Sackett story!"

    I really enjoyed the narrator for this book. His voices were very convincing, and his pronunciation drew me in to a time long ago.

    "Great story and excellent production"

    The story line was interesting and moved along at a good pace. The reader did well with voices and inflection. I will listen to the next in this series for sure.

    "Jubal's Story"
    What did you love best about Jubal Sackett?

    I really like the Sackett saga. I have read all of his books. I am now collecting the Audible ones. I like his courage.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Jubal! I like that he wants to search the country to see what is over the next mountain. As with my Viking ancestors, I connect with this.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    He swallowed the ending of each word....Meetin', excitin, At first I thought that that was how Louis L'Amour wrote it, but I don't have the book in front of me...It got irritating.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His sword fight was tooo short. I would like to have had more conversation with his opponent.

    Who was the most memorable character of Jubal Sackett and why?

    Jubal Sackett is obviously Barnabas Sackett's son!!!
