Summary

In The Lonely Men, Louis L’Amour spins the tale of a man who must elude an Apache trap - only to discover that his greatest enemy might be very close to home.

Tell Sackett had fought his share of Indians and managed to take something of value from his battles: a deep and abiding respect. But that respect is lost when Apache braves kidnap his nephew, forcing Tell to cross the border into the Sierra Madres to bring the boy back. What troubles Tell more, though, is the boy’s mother: Could she possibly be inventing a rescue mission to deliver her husband’s brother into an ambush?

Tell knows that the only things he can depend on are his wits and cold steel. But against such adversaries, even these formidable weapons may not be enough.

Classic

Just another great story written by the best western writer ever. All his stories including this one are full of details true to the early west. A must read for western readers.

Exciting and adventurous from beginning to end

Couldnt stop listening, powerfully written filled with edge of your seat excitement. Great scences and beatiful landscapes descriptions. Follows true LAmour fashion for western Sackett heroism.
