What I also appreciate is the Sackett books are in historical, not date written, order as you can chronicle the lives of the Sackett clan through early American history. Louis L'Amour was not one of the most technical or long-winded writers, he was short, succinct, and to the point and had a way that grabs you into the story immediately.
Th It's nice to get these five books together in one collection for the less than the price you would pay for each title individually in the Amazon Kindle store. The descriptions of the scenery, events, people, and situations made you feel as if you were right there living it side-by-side with his characters. I have been reading books by Louis L'Amour books since I was old enough to read.
Growing up just across the border, in Montana, I was able to experience some of the western world he always writes about.

Fantastic These are books that I have read over and never tiring of the stories on these pages. As I read I feel that I am walking along side of them through their travels and adventures. Louis L'Amour is the best at putting a story to into words to read. He is a great writer who knows our history.
Good read I really enjoy all of Mr. Typical L'Amour , good guys, bad guys, and a lot of humanity in the midst. Thoroughly enjoyed following the Sacketts through history.

I read this to catch the last two stories Jubal and Ride the River, having previously read the others. Love the panoramic scope of Louis L'Amour's saga. The character's are rugged, righteous people; what we like to think of of the prototypical "Americans".

The descriptions of the wilderness are magnificent and the stories and characters well drawn. My only issue is that the timelines for some of the journeys seem too short, but it doesn't really distract from the enjoyment. I read most of Louis L'Amour's books years ago. The Sackett books were my favorites. When I found them in historical order on Amazon, I couldn't resist.
The books are as fun to read as they were when I was younger. I'm enjoying filling in the relationships and the connections between the stories. If you've not read these, you should.
Classic storytelling for all ages I first discovered Louis l'Amour as a young reader. His stories paint a picture of the west they I would later come to appreciate even more when I moved there.
The Sackett tales are ones of courage and conviction that run thru the spirit of those who founded our nation. I would encourage young readers and old to pick up one today. One was to have covered the Revolutionary War period, there was to have been a Mountain Man novel about Tell and Orrin's father, a story about Tell's experiences in the Civil War, and several others.
Luckily, the stories were not written as an ongoing "serial" and so each can be enjoyed for it's own sake. In addition, Sackett characters appear momentarily in other L'Amour novels and there are two Tell Sackett short stories available. Louis L'Amour's inspiration for the Sackett characters was a pair of young cowboys that pulled him out of a street fight in Tucumcari, New Mexico when he was fifteen. When Louis asked them why the other boys had seemed so afraid of them the older one explained that they were cousins and between them they had over a dozen brothers.
Years later, exploring the desert west of Yuma, Arizona, Louis came upon a spot called Sackett's Well. Named after a Lt. Delos Sackett, this bleak desert watering hole gave him the name for his fictional family. After his initial success with "The Daybreakers," "Lando," and "Sackett," L'Amour committed himself to an enormous project; to write a series of adventure stories touching on all eras of American history.
Through the eyes of three families, the Sacketts, the Chantrys, and the Talons, he intended to take us on a tour of the past from the s to the s. Sadly, Louis did not live long enough to write more than half of the stories that he intended. Keep up to date on Louis L'Amour news, new book releases, articles and much more.
