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.

    "America exploration from early settlers minds."

    L'Amour pulls me into the far blue mountains along with Barney Sackett and his growing family. Knowing the end of this history doesn't spoil the adventure. Join the history lesson experience.

    Story
    "Historic and fictional"
    If you could sum up To the Far Blue Mountains in three words, what would they be?

    enlightening to early America and the people who lived here and those who settled it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of To the Far Blue Mountains?

    The accounts of the American Indians


    Have you listened to any of Jonn Curless’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you could take any character from To the Far Blue Mountains out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    That is a tough question, for so many of the characters in the book have great stories to tell of their hardships and successes. The son's and their stories of growing up in the wilderness and the contestant pearls they new as life.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this audio book to the extent that I listen to it in one day.

    "Rich in tradition, strong characters"

    ** spoiler alert ** Another great L'Amour book. The Sackett series is one that stands above the rest. Rich in tradition, strong characters, history and plot. I have always loved the writing of L'Amour, and have finally made it a goal to complete the entire Sackett series.
    I have read this book long ago, but was happy to read it again. Slow to start, but impressive once it gets going. My only regret is how much time is covered in the last third of the book. He goes from not being married, to having one child, then all of a sudden it is explained he now has 5, and next thing you know, they are all grown and his time has come to an end.
    Bittersweet. However, there is always the next to look forward to!
