Summary

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.

One of the best out of the Sackett series!

This book is one of the best out of the Sackett series. Some of them like Jubal Sackett came across as pretty far fetched but this one was just inspired.

David Strathairn, one of the best narrators.

Of course, it helps to have a great story to share, and Louis seldom comes up short.

You'll love this one.

I promise.

Exciting Sackett tale dramatized and told

character voices made great edition to bring to life the best of the western tale. Helps set the stage staying focused on the actions and motives of Tell and his brothers throughout.
