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.
