Mr. Lucky

This dirt poor farmer is walking in the woods, when he discovers some gold coins half buried on his land. Later he gets into a sword fight with a noble and he kicks the noble's butt, a hanging offense. Within five minutes he is best friends with a man he has never meet, but helps him escape the noble. Sackett who until now has lived by himself in a swamp is a natural born leader and men flock to him. He is bigger, faster and smarter then his fellow countrymen and even native American Indians. He is superman and luckyman. When he escapes pirates who are suppose to kill him, but don't, to America, the ship he is looking for with his soon to be girlfriend arrives at the American Coast at the exact spot where he is (twice). The amount of things that just fall into this guys lap happen so often it becomes comical.

If you listen to this, make sure and turn off your brain.

Great Historical Adventure

Sackett's Land is a wonderful adventure story. It is very different from most of the othe LL books I have read or listened to. Different BUT NOT bad -- it is a superb story of swashbuckling proportions. It is an audio book I had to listen to straight through!

LL really hit upon an area or subject of perpetual interest to me. It's a great story -- listen to it & enjoy!
