Publisher's Summary

Filled with exciting tales of the frontier, the chronicle of the Sackett family is perhaps the crowning achievement of one of our greatest storytellers. In To the Far Blue Mountains, Louis L'Amour weaves an unforgettable tale of a man who journeys to his homeland, but discovers that finding his way back to America may be impossible.

Barnabas Sackett was leaving England forever to find his fortune in the New World. But as he settled his affairs, he learned that a warrant from Queen Elizabeth had been sworn against him, and that men were searching for him in every port. At issue were some rare gold coins Sackett had found and sold, coins believed to be part of a great treasure lost by King John years before. Believing that Sackett possesses the rest of the treasure, the Queen will stop at nothing to find him. And if he's caught, Sackett will face torture, and even the gallows.

    Story
    "This book has it all."
    If you could sum up To the Far Blue Mountains in three words, what would they be?

    This book has it all: tales of pirates, the old America, before it became what the hero of the story Barnabas warned would come- present day America, a true romance, as well as frontier life among the indians, this book is-in my opinion, L'Amour 's best. It's epic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The legacy of a pioneer, even if fiction.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I couldn't say without spoiling


    If you could rename To the Far Blue Mountains, what would you call it?

    The history of " U.S."


    Any additional comments?

    Love to see a movie based on this book.

    "real literature"

    I absolutely loved this story. A good tale without all the modern garbage that seems so hard to get rid of.

    "Mesmerized"

    I feel like I'm there with them. Each time The book ends, I feel as though I have just lost a friend.

    "Great story!"

    I saw The Sacketts, TV shows many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed them.
    Then about 30 years ago I read Jubel Sackett, I absolutely loved it. Now I listen to books instead of reading and I started at the beginning with Sacketts Land and really enjoyed it, and I'm getting excited to get back to Jubal Sackett, and beyond!
    If you enjoy stories of the outdoors these are the ones you should listen to.

    "magic once again from beginning to end"

    Louis L'Amour captures my imagination like few authors can. This book was no exception.. Although I've read many of his books, this was the first time for this one . I'm so glad I purchased it as it pulled some of his other books together for me.
