Another installment in the sweeping saga of the Sacketts' settling the New World told by THE master storyteller, Louis L'Amour. This unabridged cassette version is extremely well read. The story is fascinating, exciting, and --in L'Amour's inimitable way-- researched to be as historically and geographical accurate as a fictional story can be. Don't miss this one.
Overview: Barney Sacket was on the run from the law. The only trail open to him ran West. With a few fierce friends and a loyal woman by his side, Barney carved a place for himself in the raw American wilderness - battling unyielding elements and savage Indians every inch of the way. Then the day came when Barney found himself unexpectedly and desperately alone.
Review: One of Louis L'Amour's "Sackett Family" books. The Sacketts are still in the mountain man era - not quite to the cowboy era. This is one of the best Sackett books and I've read them all.
To the Far Blue Mountains is book #2 in the Sackett series by Louis Lamore. It is a story of survival, friendship and scrappy independance. Taking place in the time of Raleigh and "the New World", Lamour weaves his story from the fens in England to the New World, yeomen, royalty, pirates, colonists and of course indians all come alive and struggle to survive.
liked the book but saw that the books were not in the chronological order as on the covers, so i needed to get the other books. other than that-can't wait to read them all. really nice for when i'm on the road! i'm a great fan now of his work! (husbands review)
