Overview

Sackett by Louis L'Amour

In Sackett, Louis L’Amour introduces readers to a wandering man with a desire to settle down and build a good life.

Hard circumstances have made William Tell Sackett a drifter, but now he hungers for a place he can’t name yet knows he has to find. South of the Tetons he comes upon a ghost of a trail that leads him through a keyhole pass into a lonely, alien, yet beautiful valley—a valley that holds a fortune in gold.

Then he finds an even greater treasure: beautiful Ange Kerry, a courageous and resourceful woman. Yet the harsh ways it takes to preserve his claim and his life could be the one thing that drives Ange away forever.

If you like westerns (or, maybe, if you don't really care for them) you won't want to put these stories down. If you're like me, you will want them all. I really enjoy the Sackett series, but they are all great. L'Amour has lived most of these stories himself, and does a fantastic job of researching his locals and people of the time. I've been to several of the places he writes about and know what he is describing in his books. I've read most of his work years ago, but it is worth a second or third time around. Hope you will give one a try even if you don't care for the western genre just to see if you won't take time to read through his entire collection. Jim Cowan

William Tell Sackett has become one of my all time favorite fictional characters. A man of great strength and integrity, struggling through life yet never compromising the virtues he believes in. Very inspiring.

It started with The Daybreakers. This is # 2 in the Sackett series by Louis L'amour. What makes this one particularly special is it introduces William Tell Sackett that became the fan favorite not only from the wildly popular series but from all the wonderful characters that L'amour ever created. The Sackett's always brought out the greatest depth of humor and common sense in Louis not to mention his core beliefs and the tenants that he lived by.
