Publisher's Summary

Louis L’Amour takes William Tell Sackett on a treacherous passage from the Arizona goldfields to the booming town of Los Angeles.

Tell Sackett was no ladies’ man, but he could spot trouble easily enough. And Dorinda Robiseau was the kind of trouble he wanted to avoid at any time - even more so when he had 30 pounds of gold in his saddlebags and a long way to travel. But when she begged him for safe passage to Los Angeles, Sackett reluctantly agreed. Now he’s on a perilous journey through the most brutal desert on the continent, traveling with a companion he doesn’t trust...and headed for a confrontation with a deadly gunman who also bears the name of Sackett.

Oh! The Suspense!

Captivating to the very end. The reader knows how to fluctuate his voice for the different characters in the story, and his delivery is a masterpiece.

Early Western survival and honor, hard lessons

Classic Louis L'Amour imagination and discriptive writing about the trials and tribulations of a tough and determined mountain man and his struggles against nature, the Mojave Desert, and outlaws. I personally appreciated reference to familiar desert challenges, mountain ranges, and numerous towns described as viewed by horseback in the 1800's. Good reading but also very entertaining in audio version.

Third Tale of Tell Sackett

This story sequence occurs after both the book “Sackett” and the short story “Booty for a Badman”, [offered by Audible as a separate title or in “Four by L’Amour”]. All three of these titles are about William Tell Sackett. As with many older Audible titles, the electronic chapters do not align with book chapters, and are not labeled. Also, some “Mojave Crossing” chapters have a long silent period, before the next chapter starts, for some unknown reason. Annoying, but still a good listen.
