I have started the Sackett series because I know so many people that have enjoyed L'Amour's extensive writings. Since he has sold over 300 million books there can't be much that I can say in the way of support. This is the second of the series about his journeys to the new world around 1600. They are fun books to read when you just need a break from a series of long, tedious, but worthwhile books. I get a kick out of some reviews however, with their revisionist history, sitting at their computer typing away, but they don't have a tomahawk flying by their head. I don't condone the Huns, or the Vikings, or Uganda, or Kosovo, or North Korea, or Somalia, or the Crusaders or the Anglo-Saxons or some of the sins of this country. However, people being unfair to others happened and continues to happen. You can write a book of fiction about it or you can write a review and make yourself feel better.
