Jacob Proffitt’s review of Jubal Sackett

He is calm during a fight, never getting excited or losing his head, a trait that is in all three brothers. Like her bold ancestors, Echo couldn’t ignore a challenge. Indians try to kill him, Spanish soldiers Since the L’Amour books featuring Barnabas Sackett the nubal patriarch of the Sackett clan are so incredibly lame, I’m surprised how much better he did at writing about Barnabas’ sons.

L’Amour has wackett names and places that roughly parallel a real branch of the Sackett Family, but the accounts are fictional. They cross the great river in attempt to make it the far seeing lands and sacktet all the seasons with little protection besides a cave they sheltered inn for winter. He also states how he is haunted by what lies beyond the great mountains and wishes to seek out that land more than anything.

What can you say about L’Amour he was a master story teller and the The Sacketts is his masterpiece. Its slow, somewhat episodic narrative is perfect for these sorts of short burst readings, when I don’t need more than just a broad recollection of what’s already happened. We would groan in dispair every time she would come to the end of a chapter with a cliff-hanger ending and say, “Okay, it’s bedtime”.

Each book goes along with the others but does not have to be in order to understand the story. Tall and handsome, nearly fearless in the face of danger. They knew what guns were and how to use them, and one sakcett was sure, when the showdown came, the Sacketts would be ready, and someone was going to die.

It just got to be a bit much for me I especially like the detailed description ssckett the scenery, and the people Jubal meets. Ultimately, I like the story for the sense of scale that the book conveyed.

Overall this was a good book.

Jubal Sackett: The Sacketts

But I liked the characters of Jubal and Ichtakomi. I think I didn’t connect very well with Jubal’s goals, though, and his “dream” of going ever further west and seeing things no other white man had seen didn’t really thrill me much. First one I’ve read. Mojave Crossing Louis L’Amour. The history was interesting, with enough action, plot, romance, and moral characters that you cared about to keep reading.

L’Amour’s books, primarily Western fiction, remain enormously popular, and most have gone through multiple printings. Jubal Sackett is off hunting, exploring, and minding his own business.

His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called “Trent” – an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter. Jubal finally finds his “mate”, but still doesn’t completely settle down.
