Overview

In The Sackett Brand, Louis L’Amour spins the story of a courageous man who must face overwhelming odds to track down a killer.

Tell Sackett and his bride, Ange, came to Arizona to build a home and start a family. But on Black Mesa something goes terribly wrong. Tell is ambushed and badly injured. When he finally manages to drag himself back to where he left Ange, she is gone. Desperate, cold, hungry, and with no way to defend himself, Tell is stalked like a wounded animal. Hiding from his attackers, his rage and frustration mounting, he tries to figure out who the men are, why they are trying to kill him, and what has happened to his wife. Discovering the truth will be risky. And when he finally does, it will be their turn to run.

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...

This book defanetly deserves four out of five stars. It's nothing but action, action, and let's see.......ACTION!!! Tell Sackett is my favorite character now. Ha. This was the first Louis Lamour book I've ever read, and I havent read anything besides Louis Lamour books since!! This Sackett family is how we should all refect. Awesome Book!

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.
