Overview

Ride the Dark Trail by Louis L'Amour

RIDE THE DARK TRAIL
 
In Ride the Dark Trail, Louis L’Amour tells the story of Logan Sackett, a cynical drifter who changes his ways to help a widow keep her land.

Logan Sackett is wild and rootless, riding west in search of easy living. Then he meets Emily Talon, a fiery old widow who is even wilder than he is. Tall and lean, Em is determined to defend herself against the jealous locals who are trying to take her home. Logan doesn’t want to get involved—until he finds out that Em was born a Sackett. Em is bucking overwhelming odds, but Logan won’t let her stand alone. For even the rebellious drifter knows that part of being a Sackett is backing up your family when they need you.

The book 'Ride The Dark Trail' by Louis L'Amour was an exciting book. It caught my attention with the first page i read. Lousi L'Amour uses discriptive words to make you feel and visualize whats going on. In the begining of the 'Ride The Dark Trail', Louis tells you how the Sackeet family came about. Louis tells why Logan Sackett comes too this special house, and how he meets this special person. Louis also tells you about Logan Sackett, how he is a wild rootless kind of guy, and so was this special person. Logan had, lets just say a few guns in his collection. These guns were for anyone that tried to take him on. Emily Talon is a tall and lean old widow. Emily protects the special house when the locals try to come and take it from her. The locals are affraid of Emily because there are storys about her telling how she shot a guys knee cap out when he tried to get the house. This house means a lot to the locals because it has a water supply (a river) only walking distance from the house. The locals really need that river to water there crops and to tap it to get water that is close by. Logan Sackett helps Emily Talon keep the locals out, and from taking the house away. The story 'Ride The Dark Trail' is a very interesting book. It caught my attention and made me feel like i was in the book with Emily Talon, Logan Sackett, and the locals. If you want to find out what happens to the wild Logan, crazy Emily, or the special house you should really read the book then. This is one of those books you just cant put down, you just wanna keep reading. I really think Louis L'Amour did a great job writing this book.

At the begining of the book it thought it was going to be hard to understand and follow along with but i caught on real quick. As i read along i got a real good vivid imagination about what was going on. It turned out to be a very good book.

I loved this book, in the same way that I loved Ride the River. Emily Talon née Sackett is one fierce old widowed lady, probably a darlin' Corey in the days of her youth (...she had a 44 strapped around her body and a banjo on her knee...). After Em's husband dies, a bunch of lazy cowhands think they will just come in and take what Em has because her menfolk are gone. Until a long-lost cousin - Logan Sackett, twin brother of Nolan Sackett and possibly the most trigger-happy Sackett of them all - drifts in to teach the villains otherwise. This is one of the more action-packed books of the series, with the action done in L'Amour's typical style. My chief complaint is that Em appears frequently at the beginning of the book, but then the attention shifts to Logan as Em quietly steps into the background where another potentially strong female character hides in Pennywell Farman. That promise isn't developed in this book but, while the end of the Sackett series draws nigh, I know there's a spin-off series, the Talon and Chantry novels, and I'm hoping to see more of Pennywell (maybe Em too) in one of those books.
