Publisher's Summary

A Sackett will do anything to find justice. Tell Sackett was miles away from anyone he knew, and he had no reason to think there were enemies nearby. But then Tell is shot without warning, and when he finally comes to, he discovers that all traces of his life have vanished. His wagon has disappeared and his beloved wife, Ange, is missing. Sackett vows to stop at nothing to find out what became of her. But when the truth emerges, it is more terrifying than he ever imagined, and it will take all of his strength to find out once and for all why the forces behind the mystery won't stop until every Sackett is dead.

The Sacketts are the unforgettable pioneer family created by master storyteller Louis L'Amour to bring to vivid life the spirit and adventure of the American frontier. They are the men and women who challenged the untamed wilderness with their dreams and courage. From generation to generation they pushed ever westward with a restless, wandering urge, a kinship with the free, wild places and a fierce independence. The Sacketts always stood tall and, true to their family pride, they would unite to take on any and all challenges, no matter how overwhelming the odds. Each Sackett novel is a complete, exciting historical adventure and, as a group, they form an epic story of the building of our mighty nation.

A good book - but sad

This is a sad story. Ange, who Tell Sackett found in the mountains in Sackett, finally is going to get a home. She and Tell are married and starting out to settle their land. Tell goes off to scout a way through these mountains and comes back to find everything gone. Later he finds the remains of his wagon . . . then the remains of his wife. The redeeming factor in this book is that all the Sacketts come to help. This is the only book where there are so many of them gathered in one place. It is a story told as only Louis L'Amour could tell and David Strathairn is a good reader.
