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.

    "Jane Austen girl here who liked Louis L'Amour!!"

    Truly written with great strength of characters and plots.Enough romance, intrigue and plot to make this Austen reader check in her English books for a bit, as she checked out all of L'Amour's books!!! Awesome. You GOTTA Love those Sacketts.

    "Sacketts Land"

    With a Louis Lamour story, you are transported in time to share in the story, all the excitment and passion that is displayed from the star His characters and colorful descriptions are at the least spell binding and carry you along all the way to the end,and leave you wanting more.

    "An excellent beginning to a classic family saga"

    This is the first installment in the popular Sackett series. It's not a western, but it's an epic tale. The early Sackett history mirrors that of the Pilgrim fathers from Great Britain to the New World. It's full of history and adventure! I listen to this one repeatedly. A must-listen for all Sackett fans!

    "History Comes Alive!"

    What a wonderful preview of the Sackett family and it's progenitor Barnabas as written by L'Amour. I only wish he had done more later to fill in the Sackett generational gaps leading up to the opening of the American West. This was truly one of the finest "reads" I've had in a long time.

    "A great start to a wonderful series...."

    I have read and re-read these books many times since I was handed one at sea when I had finished the Dune SiFi series. I had no other books to read for the remainder of our Westpac cruise on my first Navy ship out of San Diego...I told my friend that I read SiFi books and not cowboy books...He looked at me and said this is a Louis Lamore not a cowboy book...he was right and I have read these books for years...they are simple fast reads and I enjoy picking one up from time to time...If you have never read one, I suggest you do...They truly are not cowboy books, but fine adventures...

    I never studied while in college. I just soaked it up like a sponge soaks up water. Everyone knew me ... and called me "The Wizard".

    "High on my list of Best 25 Books I Have Ever Read"

    I have nearly 400 Audible Books, and I believe that the first four books of this series are the books that I would Recommend most of all the Audible Books I own.

    Louis L'Amour was known primarily for his "pulp westerns". But he did write a few major novels and a superb series known as the Sacketts. This is the first book of that series. And NEVER, NEVER, NEVER have I listened to an audible book whose narrator so perfectly matched the tone of the book.

    The first four books of the series, The Sackett's, are about men and women from Great Britain who migrate to America, their children and how they fare. So the narrator, with his English accent, PERFECTLY aligns with the spirit and romance of of the intrepid English explorers that immigrate to the new world.

    The action sequences are intense ... the romance is as sweet as can be imagined ... the character development of men and women whose ideals and characters are absolute and greatly to be admired, is sublime. The first four books of this series are, in my opinion Louis L'Amours finest works. And each of them are books that you truly hate to see end. I have read all of L'Amours books, but these first four books of this series were all devoured in a single sitting. Such was my fascination with the narrator.

    The first four books of this series have a solid place in my list of "Best 25 Books I've Ever Read"!

    Just to give you an idea of how romantic an Historical Fiction/Adventure series can be, let me give you an approximate quote. In one of these books, the main character of the story, remembering the women that have passed through his life says "I drink the wine, and put aside the glass ... but the taste lingers".
