Great, well-written, westerns which give insights into the self-reliant people who expanded our country from sea to shining sea. These books are literature which is very accessible to non-academics. I plan to finish reading this entire series on my Kindle.
Louis L'Amour was not one of the most technical or long-winded writers, he was short, succinct, and to the point and had a way that grabs you into the story immediately. The descriptions of the scenery, events, people, and situations made you feel as if you were right there living it side-by-side with his characters.
With this continuation of the Sackett series you not only have the classic Louis L'Amour situations with the good guy fighting the bad guy, a life-threatening conflict, and the good guy persevers, you also get more of a historical educational aspect of the life and times of early America and will learn a thing or two.
As I type this review, this book is $5.99 in the Kindle format - you'll get a lot more than $5.99 of entertainment out of this one.
Jubal is a favorite among the many Sackett characters I've encountered. He shares his father's wanderlust, competence, warrior abilities and retains the family mystic traits, more than his brothers. These are the qualities that let Jubal survive as he goes into the true unknown. It makes for a complex and interesting character.
