Overview

Sackett by Louis L'Amour

William Tell Sackett had followed a different path from his younger brothers, but his name, like theirs, was spoken with respect, and just a little fear. Where Orrin had brought law and order from New Mexico to the plains of Montana, backed up by the gunfighting talents of his brother Tye, Tell Sackett's destiny drew him to Texas after he had to kill a man. There, in the high, lonesome country, he came upon a vein of pure gold. All he'd wanted was enough to buy a ranch, but he soon learned that gold had ways of its own with men.

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.
