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)
We read the book a few years ago and enjoyed it immensely. But WOW! John Curless brought it to life and we enjoyed it immensely-er! If you have missed this one, check into getting this audio. It is three high fives......
I guess one needs to like Louis L'Amour to really appreciate this book, but even if you've never read him it's worth the money, if you like historical novels. He's sensitive to the clash between the Indians and Europeans; yes, Indians. Regardless of what the politically correct say on this matter, "Native Americans" prefer the name Indian. Just ask one.
Anyway, go ahead and spend the money; I bet you won't be disappointed.
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.
I love this author for mixing fiction with small facts here and there. He uses men and women who learned how to live off the land.
