Bantam Books proudly publishes the newest Louis L’Amour hardcover:

May There Be a Road

From the Publisher

How do you bring a million dollars in gold down a mountain? First you have to find it, and that's mighty hard when you're tracking a trail that's twenty years old. But the Sackett brothers were determined to find the treasure and to discover if their father, who blazed the trail long ago, was still alive. They just hoped that they were smarter than those New Orleans folks who wanted the gold -- and were willing to kill for it. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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.

Format: Paperback
In Treasure Mountain, Orrin and Tell Sackett set off to find their father, who has been missing for twenty years. Their mother is near the end of her life and wants to know if he'll be waiting for her at the end of the road.
During their search, the brothers split up and both run into the Baston family--who are just about as nasty as the Higginses--who seem to have information about their father, but who aren't about to let it be known. Andre is the seemingly more dangerous due to his bulk, but sister Fanny is the more insidious, using her charming ways to lure both Orrin and Tell into trouble.
Eventually Tell finds the daybook left behind by his father that tells that side of the story. This lends a level of suspense to Treasure Mountain that isn't usually present in other Sackett novels. We, as well as Tell, want to know what happened and the knowledge is revealed piece by piece. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Tell has to face the final showdown on his own, which shows both him and us what he is truly made of.
Treasure Mountain is likely the best Sackett novel I have read since Sackett's Land. William Tell Sackett is definitely my favorite Sackett and I look forward to reading more in this later part of the series featuring the brothers.
(Trivia: Flagan and Galloway Sackett from the previous novel in the series, Galloway, also make a short appearance here.)

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ginger Bradshaw on November 12, 2002
Format: Paperback
Treasure Mountain by Louis L'Amour is easily the best western I have ever read. It is a very adventurous story and has much suspense to it. Treasure Mountain is a story about two brothers who set out to search for the reamains of their father. He went on a journey twenty years earlier and never returned. These boys felt it their responsibility to find out what happened to their father.
On their journey to uncover the mystery they have many encounters with different people which causes some problems. In this book it shows the love of a family and how a family works together. It'ds hard to put this book down because you don't want to be left hanging.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries and suspense. If you want that excitement while reading I would recommend that you read Treasure Mountain by Louis L'Amour. I'm not a big western fan but I absolutely loved this book.

I have the complete collection of the hard bound books of L'Amour, and I've enjoyed reading several times over the years. Now I'm beginning to collect them on my Kindle. His writings are such that they continue to draw you back, and they are much easier to carry on my Kindle. I do wish that Amazon offered the collection in a bundle that is affordable.

This narrative tells a long story about Tell and Orrin Sackett hunting their father, or his grave, in the southern Rockies. The story tends to dwell for long durations on the hunt. Several situations (gun battles, new characters, old friends found) keeps the story moving but at a slower pace than other L`Amour writings. I enjoyed reading it, and I would recommend your reading it also. I guess I am just more impatient than I should have been.

Never picked up one of his books I wanted to put down until I finished it. The socket books shoul begin in the very beginning for a clear picture.
