Overview

Mustang Man by Louis L'Amour

In Mustang Man, Louis L’Amour takes Nolan Sackett on a dangerous journey into family betrayal, greed, and murder.

When Nolan Sackett met Penelope Hume in a cantina at Borregos Plaza, the girl immediately captured his attention. That she was heir to a lost cache of gold didn’t make her any less desirable. But Penelope isn’t the only one after her grandfather’s treasure; Sylvie, Ralph, and Andrew Karnes, distant relatives with no legal claim to the gold, are obsessed with claiming the Hume fortune for themselves. Their all-consuming sense of entitlement recklessly drives them to ambush and murder. Even if Sackett and Penelope are fortunate enough to escape this deadly trio and find the canyon where the gold is hidden, Indian legend has it that nothing will live there—no birds or insects. They say it is filled with the bones of men.

The story of the Sackett family from the first colonizers through many generations as they gradually move west to California and north and south from Ohio to Texas makes great reading for those interested in how America was opened up and developed.

A Very enjoyable read. I have read many of Louis L'Amour's books and will be adding this one to my collection

We first encounter Nolan Sackett as an outlaw in previous books of The Sacketts but, when we get to Nolan in this book, he's ashamed of his ways - he wants to be more like his good and noble kinfolk, so much so that his character becomes repetitive, difficult to sort from among the other Sacketts. The story would have been more interesting if Nolan had retained some of his outlaw-ways but that would've shortened the story considerably.

From first page till last this novel gallops over the mountains and plains of northern New Mexico and Texas blazing a trail to deliver one awesome western adventure! Filled with great characters (some as twisted as they come) and real to life landscapes (twisted likewise) that are brought alive by the master of the western genre! Louis L'amour is one of the 10 Bestselling authors of all time! And with books like Mustang Man it is no wonder.
