Summary

Filled with action, adventure, mystery, and historical detail, the Sackett saga is an unforgettable achievement by one of America's greatest storytellers. In Galloway, two brothers must struggle to survive in a wild and beautiful land to build themselves a ranch and a future.

Trouble was following Flagan Sackett with a vengeance. Captured and tortured by a band of Apaches, he had escaped into the rugged San Juan country, where he would try to stay alive until his brother Galloway could find him.

But the brothers were about to find worse trouble ahead. Their plan to establish a ranch angered the Dunn clan, who had decided that the vast range would be theirs alone. Now Galloway and Flagan would face an enemy who killed for sport, but as long as other Sacketts lived, they would not fight alone.

Louis once again gives us a superb western novel

If you enjoy western titles, this will not disappoint you. Add this book to your library, if only to have one of Louis' better stories in your possession.

The Old West

This isn't one of the western authors iconic books, but in my opinion it's straight forward simplicity makes it one of his best. Flagan Sackett's escape from the Apache/ Ute makeshift tribal group mirror's several events that actually occurred during the 19th century. His ability to gather food on his own is a fascinating look at man's ability to survive. There are fistfights and gunfights that occur once he regains his strength and other members of the Sackett family have battles with the Dunn's as well. As always the biggest weakness in his books is a lame cookie cutter romance with a silly girl who finally gets her head on straight and marries our hero.
My dad and uncle read westerns so I began reading them as well. This was the sole author of the genre that I continued to read past my mid teens. It's not any sort of great writing; and though the author is credited with more than 100 books if you've read 10 or 12 of them you've read them all. They are formulaic and extremely predictable. His books are easy listens moving swiftly with plenty of action sequences, plus you can follow the stories with less than your full attention. A good listen if you have a nighttime drive ahead of you, or while puttering in the house, the garage or outside on your lawn.

Another great L'Amour!

Of course, Louis L'Amour couldn't write any. that weren't great, in my opinion. I began reading his books when I was 12 or younger, but I was happy to listen to an old favorite. It brought the story to life for me more than reading did.

I really love Jason Culp's narration. He is truly an artist and doesn't just read the book. He makes you feel like you're there with Flagan as he's naked, in pain from bloody, torn feet and attempting to steal an elk kill from wolves.

This is my favorite

This is my favorite of the Sackett series. These brothers don't seem to be a menace but sure can carry their weight when called to. Great tale.

Great Western Genre

Again, I find the everyday struggle of life back then a marvel, even when the main character is doing simple everyday tasks. L'Amour engages the reader in a quiet gentle manner.
