Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is the third book in L'Amour's monumental "Sackett" series, set in 1620 in Colonial America. A wounded Indian brings news that Yance Sackett's sister-in-law and a young woman reputed to be a witch have been kidnapped by the bloodthirsty Pequot Indians. When Yance and his brother Kin set out to search the treacherous Warrior's Path, an old war trail that led from the vicinity of Chattanooga to Boston, they soon discover that ruthless white slavers are behind the kidnapping, using and exploiting the tensions between the settlers and the Indians. With the help of the Ashanti warrior, Yance and Kin rescue the women and then set out for Jamaica to put an end to the slave ring, fighting slavers as well as pirates along the way. This story, like all of L'Amour's work, is great fun, and John Curless's voice is wonderful as he distinguishes all of the frontier characters. An action-packed adventure; highly recommended for all libraries.DBarbara Perkins, Irving P.L., TX

More About the Author

"I think of myself in the oral tradition--as a troubadour, a village tale-teller, the man in the shadows of a campfire. That's the way I'd like to be remembered--as a storyteller. A good storyteller."

It is doubtful that any author could be as at home in the world re-created in his novels as Louis Dearborn L'Amour. Not only could he physically fill the boots of the rugged characters he wrote about, but he literally "walked the land my characters walk." His personal experiences as well as his lifelong devotion to historical research combined to give Mr. L'Amour the unique knowledge and understanding of people, events, and the challenge of the American frontier that became the hallmarks of his popularity.

Of French-Irish descent, Mr. L'Amour could trace his own in North America back to the early 1600s and follow their steady progression westward, "always on the frontier." As a boy growing up in Jamestown, North Dakota, he absorbed all he could about his family's frontier heritage, including the story of his great-grandfather who was scalped by Sioux warriors.

Spurred by an eager curiosity and desire to broaden his horizons, Mr. L'Amour left home at the age of fifteen and enjoyed a wide variety of jobs, including seaman, lumberjack, elephant handler, skinner of dead cattle, and miner, and was an officer in the transportation corps during World War II. During his "yondering" days he also circled the world on a freighter, sailed a dhow on the Red Sea, was shipwrecked in the West Indies and stranded in the Mojave Desert. He won fifty-one of fifty-nine fights as a professional boxer and worked as a journalist and lecturer. He was a voracious reader and collector of rare books. His personal library contained 17,000 volumes.

Mr. L'Amour "wanted to write almost from the time I could talk." After developing a widespread following for his many frontiers and adventure stories written for fiction magazines, Mr. L'Amour published his first full length novel, Hondo, in the United States in 1953. Every one of his more than 120 books is in print; there are more than 300 million copies of his books in print worldwide, making him one of the bestselling authors in modern literary history. His books have been translated into twenty languages, and more than forty-five of his novels and stories have been made into feature films and television movies.

The recipient of many great honor and awards, in 1983 Mr. L'Amour became the first novelist to ever to be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by the United States Congress in honor of his life's work. In 1984 he was also awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Reagan.

Louis L'Amour died on June 10, 1988. His wife, Kathy, and their two children, Beau and Angelique, carry the L'Amour publishing tradition forward with new books written by the author during his lifetime to be published by Bantam.

As a child of the true American West, I grew up with Louis L'Amour. I have always loved his westerns and especially the Sackett books. All of them are great. Although I grew up a cowboy in the original sense of the word, my favorite Sackett novels are the first four. Maybe because it is a part of the world I never knew, who knows. No one who has any kind of adventurous spirit could dislike this book. It has everything, the wild Appalachian Mountains to the open seas and tropical ports full of pirates and swordsmen. Barnabas may be my favorite Sackett and Kin Ring is definitely a fitting son. This book is a must read even if you could never get into Louis' western novels. There is something for everyone here.

First of all..if you have kids, encourge them to read the Sackett novels. They are full of history, mystery, and adventure. Along the way they just might pick up some long forgoten values missing in today's youth.This is the 3rd book in the Sackett Series, Kin Ring, Son of Barnabas Sackett, sets out on a journey to put a cramp in the slave trade. A young white girl is kidnapped, and Kin Ring gets her back, only to find her kidnapped again by slave traders while he searches for another who has been long missing. On land or on the sea, Louis L'Amour knows how to tell a story. If you have never read LL, you are in for a surprise! I was! Lay aside all your misconceptions and dive into a LL novel. You won't be sorry!

I enjoyed this chapter of the saga. There was action and depth to the characters though not as compelling as the original Barnabus Sackett story. Nice read that carries on the tradition.

I have read most all of the L'Amour books at least once through the years. I am re-reading the Sackett series in order now and just finished this one. Well written, enlightening historical fiction that makes you feel as if you were right there with the characters.

I read Louis' novels because i was attracted to Westerns but I do like the earlier colonial tales. They connect to the later novels but are in themselves good stories.

I normally read Military Science Fiction but made a New Year's resolution to read a Louis L'Amour book. This was my fourth one. Much like the style of Michener novels but L'Amour tends to be more descriptive of the senses, emotions, and actionfrom the first person character perspective. The historical references are accurate and are a treat and a wealth of informative in themselves.
Some parts are predictable. But, there are always suspenseful turns.
Great reading for all ages.

...for anyone fascinated by the stories of days gone by and drawn in by the luring style of one of the great writers of all time. Louis L'Amour has a unique and captivating style that nearly makes sacrificing essential tasks for entering a world of action, adventure and beauty a real temptation.
