Overview

A Sackett will do anything to find justice. Tell Sackett was miles away from anyone he knew and he had no reason to think there were enemies nearby. But then Tell is shot without warning-and when he finally comes to, he discovers that all traces of his life have vanished. His wagon has disappeared and bis beloved wife, Ange, is missing. Sackett vows to stop at nothing to find out what became of her. But when the truth emerges, it is more terrifying than he ever imagined-and it will take all of his strength to find out once and for all why the forces behind the mystery won't stop until every Sackett is dead.

The Sacketts 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. They are the men and women who challenged the untamed wilderness with their dreams and 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 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 historical adventure and, as a group, they form an epic story of the building of our mighty nation.

I have read nearly every book (98%) Mr.L'Amour has written. Two are my favorites, The Sackett Brand and Ride the River. These are his best. Ride the River is about another Sackett on their on in trouble... but this Sackett is a 16 yr. old girl in a dress with an Arkansas Toothpick! If you know a Sackett western you know what that is...

I thought this book gets more interelting as it goes on. You can't put it down. This book is about coming to help family even if you don't know each other! If you like western books this is the family to read about!

I have enjoyed all the Sackett stories by Louis L'Amour and Sackett Brand didn't disappoint me. Louis L'Amour is an excellent writer and story teller. If you enjoy westerns or stories about the early pioneers then try Louis L'Amour.

Tell Sackett wakes up to a living nightmare. His past is wiped out and he fears something terrible has happened to his new wife. However the villains have picked on the wrong man - Tell Sackett is rawhide tough and has an equally strong, wide ranging family of hardy frontiersmen. When you cross one Sackett you cross 'em all.

I know this much, I'm tired of reading about William Tell Sackett. I had a difficult time starting this book because I don't care for Tell or his gal, Ange, and the blurb mentions that this book is about them starting their life in Arizona. But then... L'Amour did something I didn't expect with Ange. I'm not saying what, but it definitely pulled me back into the story. And, unlike the previous stories in the series, the bad guy -and his motivation for the crime- isn't so obvious in this book. You know which outfit is to blame, but there's forty men involved so you have to stick with the story to the end to find out the whos and whys. That's a nice change of pace. I've mentioned in previous reviews that I think L'Amour was instrumental in starting the changes in the way Hollywood portrays Native Americans. In this book, L'Amour points out "what the Army had done to the Apaches" (this particular reference is on page 147 of the mass-market paperback but L'Amour mentions the subject a couple of times before then). L'Amour worked with the tools that he had at his disposal. This story introduces a whole slew of new Sacketts, as the family pulls together to save one of their own. I know I get Flagan and Galloway Sackett in the next book and I'm looking forward to a break from Tell.
