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)
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.
I am a huge LouisL'Amour fan, and this is one of the few books of his that I have never read. I enjoyed every moment listening! Great book pick it up you won't be disappointed.
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.
