Publisher's Summary

His father killed by the British and his home burned, young Tatton Chantry left Ireland to make his fortune and regain the land that was rightfully his. Schooled along the way in the use of arms, Chantry arrives in London a wiser and far more dangerous man. He invests in trading ventures, but on a voyage to the New World his party is attacked by Indians and he is marooned in the untamed wilderness of the Carolina coast. It is in this darkest time, when everything seems lost, that Chantry encounters a remarkable opportunity....

Suddenly all his dreams are within reach: extraordinary wealth, his family land, and the heart of a Peruvian beauty. But first he must survive Indians, pirates, and a rogue swordsman who has vowed to see him dead.

L'amour at his best.

one of his best books and better characters. As always, he has earned his reputation.

Keating is Master

He made the characters recognizable in so many tongues. I will look for him again.

Great swashbuckling fun!

Pirates, treasure, intrigue, secret societies, swordfights, kings, a queen and classic Louis L'Amour story telling. Combine that with great narration and we have one of the best audio books I have heard.

Enjoyable

Fun and entertaining read. Not his best book but still worthwhile. 4 stars because the narration was not my favorite but grew on me.

Good story and performance…for the most part.

This story meanders quite a bit, but still held my attention.

The performance was also good. My only gripe was that the narrator rarely changed voices with different characters’ dialogue. Because of this, when there was extensive dialogue back-and-forth, sometimes it was difficult to follow who said what.

Early L'amour, Not up to Par

This was a rather disjointed story, that was difficult to follow. Starting at one place, it is all right to have flashback, but his couple of flashbacks were so long, that the present story was lost. Not one of L'amour's best.

Good but hard to follow

Was a good story but had to go back several times to see what I missed. It jumps back and fourth in time and is hard to follow.

Not as good as I am use to from L'Amour

I am use to much better stories from Louis. Also, the reader's style was hard for me to enjoy

Fair Blows the Wind kinda blows

Please don’t misunderstand, I love LL’s books. However, this book, story wise, is all over the place. I found it very confusing the way it jumped from past to present, coupled with old memories that interwove with current events, and slingshotting from one part of the globe to another while introducing characters that seemed to be slipped in as a matter of convenience. The long and short is that it’s all over the place.

Although, very well read.
