Publisher's Summary

Son of a feared fighting man, Barnabas Sackett inherited his father's fiery temper, sense of justice and warrior skills. Declared an outlaw in his native England, Barnabas set his daring sights on the opportunity of the New World. The ruthless piracy of the open seas and the unknown dangers of the savage American wilderness lay before him. And so did the thrill of discovery and the chance to establish a bold new future if he survived.

Don't miss other titles in The Sacketts series.

    Story
    "Unique Subject Era"

    Stories set in the late 16th, early 17th century don't present themselves very often in pop culture; especially those set in what was to become America. The plot, as it is in just about all of the author's works, is weak and repetitive. The characters are at best 2 dimensional, most of his characters do not even reach that level; especially the women. Then there is his take on the American Indian; he seems to think that other than fighting wars they are barely competent. Plus his depiction of any nation is pretty much identical to any other. based for the most part on the Apache or Comanche tribes of the mid to late 19th century. This author isn't for anyone who appreciates balance, nuance or characters with depth or complexity. On the other hand the story touches on aspects of history not normally depicted; it moves quickly and has plenty of action.

    "It's a thoroughly enjoyable listen."

    The dialect and pace was engaging. I love this Sackett starter story! Offers a different setting from the western genre he abides within.

    "enjoyed "

    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.

    "Experience L'Amour's West"

    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.

    "The walking drum 2.0"

    reminds me a LOT of "The walking drum", But it's more believable than that was.
