In one of the most shocking chapters in the Jensen family saga, America's fearless frontier clan is about to take on an enemy as cold and relentless as evil itself - a mad, sadistic surgeon skilled with knives and his gang. They're gunning for the Jensen Sugarloaf ranch to ravage Jensen women and spill an ocean of Jensen blood....

Hawk Haynes ruled from his heart, but stayed alive by using his instincts. Hawk was on his way to start a new life in Texas when he runs into burned out wagons. He finds families slaughtered, the men killed, the women raped, and killed. Hawk Haynes had just introduced himself to Southwest Texas. Hawk had been deeded land just northwest of Rawlins for his services in taking care of Ted Rawlins and his wife until their death.

Cool hand Luke liked it better than the Sacketts, which they seemed to have some pretty far fetched gun battles just far from being true, can you believe that bullet hit a twig and bounced around etc, and Braver Man didn’t seem to have those miraculous events in every chapter..
My opinion of course.

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 Treasure Mountain, Louis L'Amour delivers a robust story of two brothers searching to learn the fate of their missing father, and finding themselves in a struggle just to stay alive.

Definte chapter timing was off, seemed to be off on the timing of chapter endings sometimes for almost 30-45 seconds?

Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife. He didn't go alone. John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy, and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him. Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away, and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop. It was a contest few men could enter, and fewer still could hope to win.

The Sackett boys weren't out to make a reputation, it just happened that way. They had crossed Black Fetchen and lived to tell about it. Now Fetchen was coming for them with the most expensive hired guns in the country. But the Sacketts were no strangers to trouble. They knew what guns were and how to use them, and one thing was sure, when the showdown came, the Sacketts would be ready, and someone was going to die.

Crossbow was Don Bendell's first book ever, but many still say that it was his best, as it was written very much from the heart. It is the autobiographical story of a young very gung ho Green Beret first lieutenant in 1968 and 1969 and his love affair with the Jeh tribe of Montagnards, a proud, family-oriented tribespeople in Vietnam's mountainous Central Highlands region, the action and intrigue of a horrific war, and the plight of the Montagnards who were racially-discriminated against by our allies in Saigon.

Robin Moore became one of the first true embedded journalists by training with and fighting alongside the Green Berets in Vietnam. Though fictionalized, his work is an eye-opening exposé of the horrors of the Vietnam War and the basis for the hit John Wayne movie of the same title. Taut, fast-paced, and interspersed with unforgettable accounts of combat, Moore’s novel features an American major who goes "native" with Montagnard tribesmen, a courageous Vietnamese girl who poses as a rabid anti-American Communist to capture a murderous Viet Cong officer, and the unforgettable acts of courage of soldiers in the field.

Being a Green Beret Commo Man I identified with so very much coming out of Oki in 69 as a 05B/C as I did, Commo Men were hard to come by, and we shuffled thru POR near Kin Village and on to where ever we were needed, CCK, Thailand, Nam, Laos, Cambodia and this book although Fiction, was tight with a lot of truth...Much credit was given to both sides of SF, and about how ferocious in fact the VC were...Definitely not afraid to die for their Country...
I truly enjoyed this Audiobook and very well done and Moore was awesome...
Recommend anyone who is interested in SF and some Green Beret history needs to either read or listen up, it’s definitely five by...
