    Story
    "Mr. Lucky"

    This dirt poor farmer is walking in the woods, when he discovers some gold coins half buried on his land. Later he gets into a sword fight with a noble and he kicks the noble's butt, a hanging offense. Within five minutes he is best friends with a man he has never meet, but helps him escape the noble. Sackett who until now has lived by himself in a swamp is a natural born leader and men flock to him. He is bigger, faster and smarter then his fellow countrymen and even native American Indians. He is superman and luckyman. When he escapes pirates who are suppose to kill him, but don't, to America, the ship he is looking for with his soon to be girlfriend arrives at the American Coast at the exact spot where he is (twice). The amount of things that just fall into this guys lap happen so often it becomes comical.

    If you listen to this, make sure and turn off your brain.

    "Good story, good reader, good listen!"
    If you could sum up Sackett's Land in three words, what would they be?

    The Sacketts rock


    What other book might you compare Sackett's Land to and why?

    All of them, there awesome.


    Have you listened to any of John Curless’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first listen from him, but now I've listened to most of his and I enjoy them all.


    Who was the most memorable character of Sackett's Land and why?

    Why Barnabas Sackett of course.


    Any additional comments?

    When I've listened to them all, I start over again because I feel like a Sackett so it keeps me alive and I remember my brothers.......weird huh? I named my first born son Nolan, enough said.

    "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!
