    A real page turner, could not wait to go to bed to read.

    I've never read a Louis L'Amour book before, but now I'm hooked. I've red 4 of the Sackett novel series now and they are all excellent. Its great when you find an author that you know won't disappoint. These books have it all, action, adventure, romance, historical fiction.

    Heath Jolley Review

    Heath Jolley <BR/>Book review on Sackets Land by Louis L¿amour<BR/><BR/> I came about this book because I was looking for one to read and I asked my dad if he knew of one. So my dad suggested it to me because it was a book that he had read before. So far I am 3 quarters of the way through this book and it is most defiantly one of the best books I have ever read. The book is about a man named Barnabas Sacket who lives in England around 1600. He became a criminal when he hit a gentry man out of defense who was going to kill him, and he was forced to run from Rupert Genester and he men. Barnabas and a friend Jublain have ran away to London and they went around day to day looking for people who might be able to get them to the new world as in America. In America is where Barnabas plans to take a quick voyage across the sea where he will strike it rich and then return to England. As you read the book you will notice that the book reads very easily. L¿amour does a very good job in making the book flow smoothly. And when he writes he doesn¿t seem to hide anything he just puts it all out there which makes the reading much more enjoyable and less confusing. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good adventure book. The book is also historically correct in the fact that even though it has a fiction based story line it still refers to topics of that time. L¿amour refers to the Romans that came through England and even refers to the Globe Theater and Shakespeare. Louis L¿amour is an American classic who has written more than 40 books of this type. Sackets land is the 1st one of this type and is probably one of the better ones.

    the best of lamour

    I've read quite a few lamour novels, but Sackett's Land (which is the first book in the sackett series) and To The Far Blue Mountains (which is the second) are the best of his work I've read yet, not to mention, just two of the best books I've ever read, period. If you love action, this book's full of it. Not to mention it's a period piece. So many of louis lamour's books have been put to film, i am baffled why this one and the second as well have not been made into movies. If they were, they would be even better than Mel Gibson's Patriot. Hey..... mayble Mel should make these into movies?

    Great!

    I was an English major and I regret not learning about L'Amour in college. Now years later I've read over 50 of his books. They're all great and this one is no exception.

    One of Louis's best!

    I have read "Sackett's Land" a few times and, when read together with "To the Far Blue Mountains", make an awesome beginning to the Sackett epic. I have always felt that these two novels should be combined to make one. You must read both to complete the journey of Barnabas Sackett.

    IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN Is it possible that I have lived all of 7

    IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN
    Is it possible that I have lived all of 71 years and missed the Louis L'Amour books? Yes, but I have found them now and I am unable to put them down. Very few books have grabbed my interest like Sackett's Land. It is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. That said, I am equally sure that the next will be better. I can't wait to get started on the next adventure.

    You don't have to be old like me to enjoy the late Louis L'Amour

    This was a second time around for me, having read all of Mr. L'Amour's
    books during a 20 year Navy career that ended in 1989 when I went do
    sea for my last time. I first read one of the Sackett's stories when
    I was 21 years old and ran across one of the books when I was in the Mekong Delta in 1972. I was still reading Mr. L'Amour over 15 years later on a Med deployment with Commander Cruiser Destroyer Group Two aboard the USS Iowa. I never met a Navy Chief who didn't read Louis
    L'Amour. He entertained Navy men all over the world, more than any USO Show or Hollywood star. His books filled our loneliest hours offering
    us rest and respite from long days at sea and thoughts of home. His stories of the "Sackett's" brought to us a little of the history of
    our Nation, that Men like me served and reminded us what sort of
    men we wanted to be. I know Presidents thanked him and rewarded him,
    but I regret he passed before I ever got to say Thank you. Funny a gift of a Nook at Christmas in my 60th year has brought me back to
    this, one of the greatest story tellers who ever lived. Sackett's Land is a quick and very entertaining read; quick largely because it's so
    difficult to put down, this tale that begins the series. If you have
    a child, especially a teenager who doesn't like to read, I encourage you to start them here, where they can be entertained and educated.
    Excellent read...even the second time around.

    First of the Sackett Clan

    Louis L'Amour hits a home-run in this exciting work about an enterprising young Englishman who finds adventure in the New World. Of course, nothing good is won without strife as he battles against a callous sea captain bent on stealing his hard-won goods. This book has it all: battle (land and sea), romance, and the pioneering spirit that made America great.

    My dad and I always enjoy Mr L'Amour books.

    I was introduced to Louis L'Amour books by my dad. We have read every single one of his books at least 5 or more times. My dad is now 83 and he can't find any of the books he had saved since the '50's, so I am buying them for him a few at a time. There is not one single book that we do not love to read several times from him. His books are short and to the point and you know who the bad guy is right off; but the coffee he makes over that campfire sure makes you want to have some.

    the first sackett book

    Englander Barnabas Sackett makes his first foray into America in this book, circa 1600. Barnabas was one of the first humans to have "an American dream," along with the wits, enthusiasm, and zest to bring it to fruition. The book begins when Barnabas insults a gentry man, Robert Genester, and a fight ensues (which is my favorite in the book). Genester vows to kill Barnabas, and the threat hastens Barnabas' voyage to America. The story is chock full of action and adventure. Barnabas must battle Genester again towards the end of the book, and we are introduced to Barnabas' arch-enemy: Nick Bardle, the English pirate. Great book.
