4.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Sackett Novel, October 21, 2005
This review is from: Passin' Through: A Novel (Paperback)
If you like the Sackett novels, and anyone reading this will be a fan, then you will like this novel for sure. The main character never gives his name in the book, but enough clues are in there (especially at the end) that everyone should recognize the main character as a Sackett. At any rate, this is a good one and should be on everyone's list.

Yours is an interesting review. I have read perhaps sixty L'Amour novels so far, including all of the Sackett books. I guess I have become a little jaded, since so many of LL's characters seem to be cut from the same bolt of cloth, or forged from the same roll of steel. I did not come to the conclusion that Passin' Through is a Sackett, but I can see that it is possible.

I immediately caught the reference to their arch enemies - Mattie is a down-on-her luck Higgins gal - but I don't necessarily see that as an indicator that the main character is a Sackett.....

It has been eight years since you wrote this review, but I wonder if you can comment about what made you conclude he was directly related to those hard to kill, fast shooting boys from Tennessee.

BTW, I enjoyed this book _immensely_, and I agree that it is among his very best works. That part of the country south of the San Juan Mountains near Mesa Verde in Colorado is drop dead gorgeous, and I kept stopping reading to Google pictures of the places he mentions.... Search for "Maggie Rock Ranch" if you want an idea of what this country looks like.
