The book was good and well rounded. It had many different plots through out the book and was never boring in my opinion. Also the book is only 200 pages or so and doesn't take long to read for the readers who dont like to read those long drawn out books. The plot or plots I should say were very interesting. Tye kills a man to save his brother at his wedding and then must flee his home and head west to find a home for his mother. His brother Orrin heads out with him they incounter many obstacals. They then come into a small ranch town and Orrin falls in love with a blonded woman named Laura Pritts whose father is trying to over take the land of a Spanish Don whose granddaughter Tye falls in love with. Through out the book there is problems with this but finally it all works out and the Pritts must leave town. I very strongly recommend this book to anybody out there and especially to those who like to read of the western days and cowboys. It is just a good and enjoyable way to pass the time Louis L'amour is one of the best western writers of all time so if you want to read about the west sometime try the 'Daybreakers'.

this is the book TV choose to bring to life and one chapter in it is easy to tell why. If I had to give one western to someone that dose not read them this would be the book.I belive this is La'Mours best work.

First Sackett  novel I have read. I read Down the Long Hills by Louis L’Amour which prompted me to read some more of his work. This book by far is my favorite. You see the world from Tye Sacketts eyes. Its him and his brother trying to round up wild cattle and making a living in Mora. Cant say more because I will spoil it. But amazing story. Cant wait to read another Sackett story.
