Though most of the epic Sackett series takes place during the 1870s, Louis L’Amour took great pains to flesh out this iconic family’s origins and pre–Civil War history. Now the five novels chronicling the arrival of Barnabas Sackett on American soil, his sons’ trials in the sprawling new wilderness, and their descendants’ adventures in the West are collected in one indispe ...more

There’s no doubt in my mind that this Author is the best of the best among Western Writers!! He is a great writer who knows our history.

It's nice to get these five books together in one collection for the less than the price you would pay for each title individually in the Amazon Kindle store. What I also appreciate is the Sackett books are in historical, not date written, order as you can chronicle the lives of the Sackett clan through early American history.

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. Th

I have been reading books by Louis L'Amour books since I was old enough to read. Growing up just across the border, in Montana, I was able to experience some of the western world he always writes about.

These are books that I have read over and never tiring of the stories on these pages. As I read I feel that I am walking along side of them through their travels and adventures. Louis L'Amour is the best at putting a story to into words to read.

Replacement for books lost to hurricane Ike

Over fifty years I had read and collected every paperback edition of L'Amour books when they were available starting in the nineteenth sixty.I spent many a night huddled in a shelterhaft or vehicle reading one of his book's.

A novel well worth reading.

A novel well worth your time to read. A epic story that is the basis of this country's people, heritage, and integrity. If you enjoy reading fiction based on history then please read Louis L'Amour "The Sacketts Volume One.

I had said for a number of years that they should do a Compendium of the Sackett Novels glad to see that it's finely been presented 😊😊😊

Gripping, great reading!

Great read. Learned more American history than in high school and college even though in novel form. L'Amour is a master of historical fiction.

I read this to catch the last two stories Jubal and Ride the River, having previously read the others. Love the panoramic scope of Louis L'Amour's saga. The character's are rugged, righteous people; what we like to think of of the prototypical "Americans". The descriptions of the wilderness are magnificent and the stories and characters well drawn. My only issue is that the timelines for some of the journeys seem too short, but it doesn't really distract from the enjoyment. ...more

The best books that I have ever read. With out a doubt.

I have every book he has ever written. I have been to places that he uses in his stories. It becomes a whole new experience when you have read about the place that you are at. I mourned his passing as I would have a family member. He will be missed by many avid readers of the wild west. I'm grateful that I was here for some of the best reading of the real cowboys bible that you will ever know. God Bless. I shall see him in heaven.

I read most of Louis L'Amour's books years ago. The Sackett books were my favorites. When I found them in historical order on Amazon, I couldn't resist. The books are as fun to read as they were when I was younger. I'm enjoying filling in the relationships and the connections between the stories.

If you've not read these, you should. and rereading them is a lot of fun as well.

It's a ok book to me.
1. Stand off
2. Romance
3. Fist Fight
The book is called the Sackett's vol 1 which is by Louis L'Amour. It about about a western who fight for Justice out in the old west of course back then it just be called the west. On the way of chasing a criminal down he gets help from women and a Native American who helps him the the criminal down and give him justice.

The Sacketts have always been good reading, with a touch of history. Louis L' Amour for me is about the best Western writer of all time.

Excellent! A very good western. Always wanted to get all these Sackett Westerns together. The family is amazing and the writer brings them to life.

Classic storytelling for all ages

I first discovered Louis l'Amour as a young reader. His stories paint a picture of the west they I would later come to appreciate even more when I moved there. The Sackett tales are ones of courage and conviction that run thru the spirit of those who founded our nation. I would encourage young readers and old to pick up one today.

I do like Louis L'Amour and this is a good series. The characters are well developed. The history is there but spotty. We know there were Europeans before Columbus. We know much of the information he cites as probably factual but lacking history, historical history fills the void. I like this. I will continue with the series from here. ...more

As a genealogy buff, I enjoyed the first volumes of this series because I imagined it as part of my family, Scots-irish who came over to the Carolinas and moved westward. Of course, as far as I know, our family was far more boring!

These books are so much fun to read!! Perfect for a road trip/vacation. This set of books were just as much fun to read now as they were as a teenager.
