Overview

One of the great sagas of our time, the chronicle of the Sackett family is perhaps the crowning achievement of one of our greatest storytellers. In Lando, Louis L'Amour has created an unforgettable portrait of a unique hero.

A man never to count out....

For six long years Orlando Sackett survived the horrors of a brutal Mexican prison. He survived by using his skills as a boxer and by making three vows.

The first was to exact revenge on the hired killers who framed him. The second was to return to his father. And the third was to find Gin Locklear.

But the world has changed a lot since Lando left it. His father is missing. The woman he loves is married. And the killers want him dead. Hardened physically and emotionally, Lando must begin an epic journey to resolve his past, even if it costs him his life.

THE SACKETT SERIES IS SOO GREAT.I HAVE READ THIS ONE AND ALL THE ONES BEFORE THIS AND THEY ARE ALL GREAT.BUY THEM ALL.

The blurb on the back of this book is the most awful blurb I've ever read. I spent half the story wondering if the publisher put a blurb for another book on the cover. But then, halfway in, everything the blurb says starts to unfold but not in the context that the blurb suggests. And I think I would've preferred the story that the blurb suggests. This has been my least favorite story about the Sackett family; everything interesting happens before the start of this book and the attempt to work in the backstory is convoluted. Then, just as the story gets interesting - right before Lando is thrown into Mexican prison - the narrative breaks, those six years of prison skipped, so the end of the book feels like the start of a new story. I was glad to finish this one and hope I don't see a repeat in the rest of the series.

I HAVE YET TO FIND AN AUTHOR THAT I LIKE BETTER THAN LOUIS L'AMOUR AND HAVE READ MANY OF HIS BOOKS MORE THAN ONCE. LANDO WAS EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD, EVEN THE SECOND TIME.

The story of the Sackett family from the first colonizers through many generations as they gradually move west to California and north and south from Ohio to Texas makes great reading for those interested in how America was opened up and developed.

I am purchasing all the Sackett books for my Nook. Having owned & read them before I am doing it again. They are still as good as they have always been.

Lando is just one of the great Sackett series novels. Read them all from the beginning to get a feel of our history and those that "Lived it"
