Publisher's Summary

In The Sackett Brand, Louis L'Amour spins the story of a courageous man who must face overwhelming odds to track down a killer.

Tell Sackett and his bride Ange came to Arizona to build a home and start a family. But on Black Mesa, something goes terribly wrong. Tell is ambushed and badly injured. When he finally manages to drag himself back to where he left Ange, she is gone. Desperate, cold, hungry, and with nothing to defend himself, Tell is stalked like a wounded animal. Hiding from his attackers, his rage and frustration mount as he tries to figure out who the men are, why they are trying to kill him, and what has happened to his wife. Discovering the truth will be risky. And when he finally does, it will be their turn to run.

By far my favorite

This is by far my favorite Sackett story! It's mostly because my family is the same way, you wrong one of us, you've got these rest of us to deal with as well.

Sad but good

For someone who is listening to the Sackett books from beginning to end you get attached to some of the people in the books. To see one of them killed is hard but the way Mr L'Amour brings the clan together makes this book one of my favorites!

Tale of woe and pain trying times for Tell Sackett

Heartwrenching sorrow and vengeful action to find the killer of his beloved wife is where Tell becomes open with his raw emotions. Here he tells the story of heartache and pain often given to many a settler coming west and having to deal with white men of evil intent.

Good solid story

I'm a fan of L'Amour especially the Sackett series and have read all of his books. I'm enjoying listening to the audio production versions. The reader does a great job. The only thing is there are several long pauses making one think something is wrong with the recording, just give it a minute or two and the story will resume.

One of the best!

This is one of my favorite Sackett stories by Louis Lamour! I have read the book and listened to the story a number of times. I especially enjoy David Strathairn's narration. If you haven't read the Sackett novels, do so! Start at the very beginning. Lamour truly brought his characters to life.
