Summary

Filled with exciting tales of the frontier, the chronicle of the Sackett family is perhaps the crowning achievement of one of our greatest storytellers. In The Warrior's Path, L'Amour tells the story of Yance and Kin Sackett, two brothers who are the last hope of a young woman who faces a fate worse than death.

When Yance Sackett's sister-in-law is kidnapped, Yance and his brother Kin race north from Carolina to find her. They arrive at a superstitious town rife with rumors, and learn that someone very powerful was behind Diana's disappearance.

To bring the culprit to justice, one brother must sail to the exotic West Indies. There, among pirates, cutthroats, and ruthless "businessmen", he will apply the skills he learned as a frontiersman to an unfamiliar world, a world where one false move means instant death.

Another Good One

This is another good Lamour book. The narrator is the same from book one and two. He does a good job with the different characters. I was afraid that I would be tired of the story line after the first two books, but that was not the case. This book was just as good and kept my attention.

If you like the first three Sackett books you might also like books by G.A. Henty ("In the Reign of Terror" is a good one to start with or "The Cat of Bubastes".). Lots of history and adventure that's good for all ages.

A Good Western or A Good Eastern?

Amazing! A Western that goes Eastern and does it well. Another l'Amour twister that goes sailing off to the not too far East and returns with all the treasures sought got. John
Curless gives another flawless performance. Typical? Yes, for both author and narrator. Don't miss this one.......three high fives

Real life believable drama history , life and often death.

Story was full of reality about the names of places, rivers and weapons and Indian tribes. Such a good writer. No sexual encounters or profanity needed for a message that never lets you off the hook. Just great and memorable.

Timeless books, great for families

My grandfather had a collection of the Louis L'Amour books and I remember his talking about them, telling me the stories. Later my father started reading the books and after my grandfather died my dad got his collection. Recently after my father passed I found the entire repository of western novels, I only wish I had listened to them sooner so I could share in the stories the way my son and I do with the Zanth, monster hunters, and wild cards. These are great stories with timeless values and wonderful lessons. I recommend sharing with the kids sooner rather than later.
