From the Inside Flap

Tyrel Sackett was born to trouble, but vowed to justice. After having to kill a man in Tennessee, he hit the trail west with his brother Orrin. Those were the years when decent men and women lived in fear of Indians, rustlers, and killers, but the Sackett brothers worked to make the West a place where people could raise their children in peace. Orrin brought law and order from Santa Fe to Montana, and his brother Tye backed him up every step of the way. Till the day the job was done, Tye Sackett was the fastest gun alive.

"From the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

A magnificent saga of American fiction, the Sacketts series is one of the greatest treasures by legendary storyteller Louis L'Amour. In The Daybreakers, L'Amour spins the tale of two brothers who couldn't be more different -- yet remain bound by their restlessness of spirit.

"RIDE WITH THE LAW, NEVER AGAINST IT".

You had to push to start a fight with Orrin Sackett, but not with his brother, Tyrel. Tye had been born to trouble, and the night he stepped between his brother and a bullet changed the course of both their lives forever. Now their trail pointed west, to Santa Fe, a frontier town on the edge of violence -- but justice had to come before putting down roots in a lawless land. Orrin took on the job of marshal, while Tye commanded fear and respect even without a badge. But when a loose end from their past turned up, one brother was forced to revert to his old ways -- if the other's dreams were to be realized.... --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

I give this novel five stars, but with a sigh and a caveat. You can't compare L'Amour to anyone but authors in the Western genre, and he is head and shoulders above most of them. I have read many books in my day; some of them uplift me, some of them have changed me, some of them have made me a better person. Louis L'Amour's books will do none of these things...BUT! You will seldom find a more entertaining read. Open a L'Amour western and the action just thunders off the pages. You can almost smell the gunsmoke. His action scenes are well -written, and, in spite of what another reviewer said,

his characters are better drawn than those by most other western writers. Yes, they are fictional, and the things they do are largely fictional. L'Amour writes of a Wild West that should have been, full of bad guys but also full of plain-speaking, mountain-bred, six-shooter totin' Good Guys who are more than capable of taking care of themselves. The satisfying thing in these novels is that you just know the bad guys are going to run right up against Our Hero and boy, are they gonna pay for their misdeeds...! You can't wait for that to happen, and L'Amour delivers the goods in each and every book. This Sackett novel is probably the best of the series and is a great example of L'Amour's writing. Read this, enjoy it at the level at which it should be enjoyed, and get ready to ride the wild west with the Sackett boys!!

I read The Daybreakers in one sitting and not since discovering Conrad,Asimov,and Vonnegut in high school had a book so strongly introduced me into a new genre of fiction. The Daybreakers is the best Sackett book I have read to date. With beautiful imagery of the new american west and thoughtful page devotion to its characters and setting. It has great gunfights and a quick-paced story to back them up. I now find myself as big a fan of the warm frontier years as I was of the cold sterile future. I recommend this book to anyone with enough time to give this great story.

The Daybreakers is truly a western classic. It tells the tale of two brothers who find themselves alone heading west trying to find a better life for themselves and their family. Along the way they encounter battles from Indians, Renegades, Outlaws, Land-Grabbers, and the betrayel of a good friend. An adventure filled tale packed with gunsmoke, Spanish Haciendas, and the perfume of lovely senoritas. You will not be making a mistake with this one, a prime example of how action/adventure should be. Lamour is at his best with The Daybreakers.

One of my favorite childhood authors was Robert Louis Stevenson. The excitement/tension in his books is palpable. I get that same feeling w/Louis L'Amour.
It's a simple story simply told. I survived a 12 hr. marathon Xmas shopping trip by reading this book between stores. Great characters & great action... Consistent themes include education,family & honor. The Sacketts are a family for the ages. This uis a great place to start the Sackett Saga!

Well, I'm six (6) books into the Sacketts Series and am still totally enjoying them. I'm homing on to the 7th book now. One of the fun parts for me anyway is enjoying the parallels to actual history. The struggle of the races, the strong dislike to the Spanish and Mexican people felt in the southwest at the time. And how the various problems with the American Indians of the time was felt.
It's so easy to judge by today standards, but today's world has nothing to do with the 1,600 to 1.900,s. Especially the 1,600 to 1,800's. Life then was Tough! You want to eat? You had better got the rifle out, because no one else or no place else was going to feed you. And don't let no indian see or for that matter hear you. Or you wouldn't be getting back to skin, gut, clean, salt or smoke that meat. Oh and remember, keep thoughts animals out of your fresh vegetables garden unless you don't want any left

"The Daybreakers" is a book about Jubal Sackett's children, all boys, five of them, and their move to the southwest from Tennessee. Jubal is (assumed) dead, leaving his once-beautiful young Natchez Sun Princess bride and his five sons in East Tennessee, where life for them is a bare existence. The Sackett boys were in a feud with the Higgins' family for two decades, killing nineteen of them in self-defense. It was the last Higgins, Long Higgins, that Tyrel was forced to kill after Long attempted to murder Orrin, at his wedding ceremony. Long got the bride instead of the groom but then turned his gun to kill Tyrel. Tyrel then left Tennessee with his mother's blessing, rather than be kept in jail until a judge would arrive to determine the shooting was in self-defense, which it truly was. While this story is uplifting in many ways if you love the tough Sackett boys/men, it also has a sad undercurrent, that you will only understand by reading the book for yourself.

I very highly recommend you read the entire series as well as all of Louis L'Amour's books! His books are well written and for the entertainment of both men and women!
