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.

Don't miss other titles in The Sacketts series.

    "Better than reading the book!"

    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......

    "A good read!"

    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.

    "Loved it! From start to finish, non-stop action."

    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.

    "a good history"

    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.

    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.
