L'amour, Louis - Sackett's 02. I swung over the side and dropped in beside him. We pushed off. While we went ashore, Blue was to remain with the boat, hiding deep in the shadows. How far have we to go?". Jeremy asked nglish mile," I said. Suddenly, there was a heavy boom from seaward. Turning, aghast, we stared back toward the harbor entrance. Slowly but surely, a great ship was coming down the harbor. and she flew the flag of England

Barnabas Sackett returns to England, from America, on a trading trip. Book of the Sacketts is even better than the 1st (which was mainly an introduction into the characters and how they all came to be) because it is filled with lots of action, incredible character development and a real insight into how difficult it was to make better lives for ones family when the world was still being discovered.

I totally enjoyed this book. Totally! So much so, I'm continuing the Series. I'm getting Sacketts Book 3. I've dreamed of what America was like in the very beginning, 400 or 500 years ago, even further back. Now I believe I do. Even though every person back then would have a very different experience, I like reading about Sacketts'. The only difficulty involve, is forgetting everything else around me when I'm read these books. Sackett's adventure are so inthralling I lose all track of time and before I know it several more hours has passed. I will said this too, either you will love the story or you will have no interest. I love them.

This is the continuing saga about Barnabas Sackett's return to England from America to settle affairs for his father. But he learns there is a royal warrant out on him and every shipping port is being searched. Queen Bess believes Sackett has more treasures found besides the six gold coins he previously found. He needs to find a way back to America before being captured. Most of L'Amour's novels are based on historical facts. He's one of the greatest storytellers who devoted much time to historical research to enhance his novels. A classic western author. Highly recommend.

This is an exciting, exhilarating book. At times the main character Barnabas Sackett shares his thoughts with you, the reader, which makes it even more interesting. The fight scenes are described magnificently. You can actually imagine that you see what you are reading about in your own thoughts. This is also a story about family and friends staying true to one another. This family loves one another. One way they show their love is by allowing each person to have their own distinct personalities. By loving and enjoying the differences in one another.

I have enjoyed the whole Sackett series, but the first two were an awesome start. I loved this book every time I've read it, and will no doubt read it again sometime. Heartwarming and heartbreaking, a wonderful history of some of the very first people to make a life in this great country. They would cry to see it now, I think. That's why I donate to protect our wilderness areas that seem to dwindle by the year. Read this book and share it with everyone you know, any age.

Sackett's Land and To the Far Blue Mountains make a complete story of the life and times of the Sackett progenitor. The combination is entirely satisfactory. L'Amour had the ability to tell the story well, and he developed that ability with years of work and research. It is probably fortunate for Sackett enthusiasts that he wrote the first books in the series later in his writing career. We benefit from his seasoned skills.

As in his westerns, in this book L'Amour focuses on what he finds interesting and what he thinks the reader will like to know. For the most part, he doesn't go into the technical detail that some authors pursue, but he paints a clear picture. The reader has a feeling of being there, or the strong sense that they could be there, right along with our hero.

The Sackett family saga is the story of an American family. Like all of L'Amour's work, it is wholesome and educational. He consistently hits on themes that his readers recognize, the importance of education and critical thinking, respect for our fellow creatures and the world in which we live,loyalty to family and friends, and taking positive action to shape one's own life. All that and a fun story too, for the cost of five bucks.

I have read every Louis L'Amour novel, novelette and article written. There is no other writer who in my opinion has a better grasp writing about his subjects than Mr. L'Amour. It is truly a shame that he was never able to complete the many follow up books he had planned to write; especially the series on the Sackett families. He wanted to expand on several of the family members but I think the one I most wanted was him to continue with Jubal Sackett. When he wrote about his western subjects, Mr. L'Amour not only weaved in events that were happening during the same time line as his books, he also wrote with a grasp of the areas he wrote about. He had visited many of the areas he wrote about as well and had spoken over the years to people who had lived during the latter half of the 1800's and many times had first or second hand knowledge of the people and places as well.

I wish someone could pick up where he left off.....
This was the continuation of Sackett's Land. It is the tale of Barnabas Sackett and his coming and settling in America. This is the beginning of the famous Sackett series. It was well written and laid the ground work for the rest of the series. I was a little annoyed that this didn't happen in "Sackett's Land" and therefore I had to read "To the Far Blue Mountains" to complete Barnabas' story. So glad I did. I really enjoyed the entire story. And yes, it was worth buying both books. If you are a Louis L'Amour fan you will enjoy this book. Just a suggestion, purchase them both so you can continue this story.
