Awesome book! Thoroughly enjoyed the ENTIRE story! Louis L'Amour is amazing in his story telling technique! I have not been let down yet! This would be an excellent story for a teenage girl.
It is about a girl of 16 that travels to a city she is unfamiliar with to retrieve an inheritance of a considerable sum. She encounters several hoodlum types that try to steal the inheritance while she heads back for home. Little do these hoodlums know that she is Echo Sackett; an incredibly intelligent woman, tough as nails, and accurate with a firearm! She gives them a "run for the money", so to speak.
It is an enjoyable read! Too many people are deprived of Louis L'Amour's incredible skill as a writer! I am addicted!
I would also highly recommend "Lonesome Gods" by Louis L'Amour. A definite MUST READ!
I loved this book! I am, admittedly, a Louis L'Amour fan and really like his books. This one was a "Sackett" series book, with a female heroine, filled with action and adventure. Predictable, as all of his books are...but I love them!
No matter that Echo Sackett was young, and a woman,and had never been far away from the valley.She was still a Sackett-sharp and smart and a better hunter than most men she knew.A sure hand w/a horse,a dead shot w/a rifle and fast w/her wits.But can she prove
herself to those who doubt her.
