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.

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.

Long time favourite

I’m a long time fan of Louis L’Amour, revisiting his world time and time again. The story of a family growing up in the beginnings of western civilization of the Americas. L’Amour has a power with words, a poetry not often matched. I knew what happens, I knew the ending, and listening to this, I sobbed at the last scene, the last lines. I have no words.
