Mr. L'Amour does what he does best--providing nonstop action and exhilarating, streamlined narration. Barnabus Sackett, an Englishman of the fen country, has a deep-seated urge to settle in the New World. He must battle pirates, brave Indians, and back-stabbing Englishmen to attain his goal. You can't help but be inspired by Barnabas' enthusiasm and zest for life. This novel is both epic and (I was surprised) even poignant at certain points. It is educational and hard to put down. (Note: this book chronologically follows "Sackett's Land," and is part of the Sackett series, a fictional family who bravely settle the American frontier, and whose story spans from c.1600 to the late 1800s.)

Nope

This probably a good book for using nice writing skills, but other than that it was the most boring book I have ever read!

    Great book about the struggles of early settlers.

    This book was even better than the first sacket novel which was also about the adventures of Barnabus. it shows the adventures and trials many early pioneers had to face in order to come to a land they knew nearly nothing about and try and make a place for their family.

    One of Louis's best. but they are all GREAT!

    If you like Louis L'amour as I do, you have probably read most, if not all, of his stories. There is not a better prepared writer of westerns than he. He has lived most of the characters he writes about, and does a fine job of researching his history of the time. This is a great read, and even though it is fiction, there is a lot of history included to keep you mindful of the times. Although at a very different front is "Haunted Mesa", which I also think is one of his great reads. I just can't say enough good thing about this author... I love his books!

    Great Western

    Typical Louis L'Amour! Nothing but great westerns came from his typewriter and this is no different. To The Far Blue Mountains gives you a GREAT story, but also gives you plenty of accurate history!

    Another page turner.

    Here again, Louis L'Amour, has written another great story that I found very hard to put down. Thanks Mr. L'Amour for being the worlds greatest "Story Teller."
