The Lonely Men

Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife. He didn't go alone. John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him. Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away-and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop. It was a contest few men could enter-and fewer still could hope to win.



The Sacketts

They are the unforgettable pioneer family created by master storyteller Louis L'Amour to bring to vivid life the spirit and adventure of the American frontier. The Sacketts, men and women who challenged the untamed wilderness with their dreams and their courage. From generation to generation they pushed ever westward with a restless, wandering urge, a kinship with the free, wild places and a fierce independence.

The Sacketts always stood tall and, true to their strong family pride, they would unite to take on any and all challenges, no matter how overwhelming the odds. Each Sackett novel is a complete, exciting history adventure, and read a s a group, Louis L'Amour's The Sacketts form an epic story of the building of our mighty nation, a saga cherished by millions of readers around the world for more than a quarter century.

Tell Sackett rescues children from the Apaches. If you've already read other Sackett stories, what more do I have to say? If you're not familiar with the Sackett stories, let me just say that they are a lot like Lee Child's character Jack Reacher, but with a hillbilly background. Their stories are wonderful to read and are usually a roller coaster ride of Western adventure. You can't red just one.

Louis M'Amour is the best western writer ever. I was rooting for Tell and his crew the whole way. Good stuff. I read it in two hours. WOW!

I love all Louis L'Amour books.....His story telling is great. I get so involved that I can't put the book down till I read the whole thing.

William Tell Sackett won me over in this book. I wasn't expecting much because the previous stories about Tell have been so-so but he won me over when he went off to save a boy he hadn't even met. And, for most of the book, we're given the Hollywood depiction of the Apache - fierce blood-thirsty warriors. L'Amour worked with the tools he had at the time. He counters the stereotype by giving us Kahtenny, the Apache equivalent of a Sackett. I kind of hope to see these two riding together in a future book (I'm not expecting it but L'Amour could surprise me). Then, there's Dorset. We don't see her much, but we don't see her because she's strong enough to go off and do her own thing. I already like her better than Tell's dead wife Ange. So this book picked me back up - the last couple books have felt monotone and repetitive but this book pulled back into the series.
