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.

"Narrator John Curless has Barnabas' sincere, ingenuous courage down pat." (AudioFile)
This book was so fun to listen to. L'Amour keeps you on your toes with non-stop adventures of living the frontier life. Barnabas Sackett is a bold and courageous character who brings to life the spirit of independent settlers. I look forward to listening to the next Sackett book.
our history began in Europe and included ocean and several lands and customs here and there. This is a fun tale of a possible beginning with just enough reference to facts to make it difficult to end.
Louis L'Amour is one of my favorite authors. This book is a perfect example of what of his to read, I've read all of his books and it is one of my favorites!
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.
The legacy of a pioneer, even if fiction.
I couldn't say without spoiling
The history of " U.S."
Love to see a movie based on this book.
Story line is great, but the interruptions ruin the fun.
Too many times the reading is interrupted by problems somewhere in the transmission.
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.
