Publisher's Summary

Son of a feared fighting man, Barnabas Sackett inherited his father's fiery temper, sense of justice and warrior skills. Declared an outlaw in his native England, Barnabas set his daring sights on the opportunity of the New World. The ruthless piracy of the open seas and the unknown dangers of the savage American wilderness lay before him. And so did the thrill of discovery and the chance to establish a bold new future if he survived.

Great Start

I heard this audio book a few years ago and decided to buy it to listen again. This is the kick of story for the Saketts series. I listen to these books driving truck and this book is a real mile burner, and one you hate to hear end. However the next in the series (To The Far Blue Mountains) picks up where this book ends. The whole series doesn't do that, but the first few do because it's about a journey from England to America and across America over several generations. Most of the later books are stories of Saketts all over the country in the "Wild West" days of America. So if you're interested in a book that will at least keep you going through the first five books in the series, then this is a powerful start.

I enjoy Louie L'Amour

Louie is GREAT. I have, I believe, every one of his books, in paperback. The choice of the reader of this book, I believe was very good. I have a few of Louie's dramatized audio short stories, that keep your attention the whole book. This reader does very well. His accent is approperate as well. It deserves more than Five Stars. Someone deserves a job; "Well Done".

It's a great backdrop to early settlers in the North American continent

Good characters , an interest storyline and it makes you want to go to the next book, well performed in an accent that I felt matched the characters and the period. I has done also read the book and was convinced by the performance. Very good
