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!

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.
