Barnabas Sackett was on the run. The only trail open to him ran West. With a few fierce fighting friends and his courageous wife Abigail by his side, Barnabas began to carve a place for himself and his glowing family out of the harsh Eastern American landscape. Facing an unyielding terrain, forbidding elements and savage Indians Barnabas stood tall, staking a bold Sackett claim on the future.
From the Inside Flap
Filled with exciting tales of the frontier, the chronicle of the Sackett family is perhaps the crowning achievement of one of our greatest storytellers. In To the Far Blue Mountains, Louis L'Amour weaves an unforgettable tale of a man who journeys to his homeland -- but discovers that finding his way back to America may be impossible....
Barnabas Sackett was leaving England forever to find his fortune in the New World. But as he settled his affairs, he learned that a warrant from Queen Elizabeth had been sworn against him -- and that men were searching for him in every port. At issue were some rare gold coins Sackett had found and sold -- coins believed to be part of a great treasure lost by King John years before. Believing that Sackett possesses the rest of the treasure, the Queen will stop at nothing to find him. And if he's caught, Sackett will face torture -- and even the gallows....

As in his westerns, in this book L'Amour focuses on what he finds interesting and what he thinks the reader will like to know. For the most part, he doesn't go into the technical detail that some authors pursue, but he paints a clear picture. The reader has a feeling of being there, or the strong sense that they could be there, right along with our hero.
The Sackett family saga is the story of an American family. Like all of L'Amour's work, it is wholesome and educational. He consistently hits on themes that his readers recognize, the importance of education and critical thinking, respect for our fellow creatures and the world in which we live,loyalty to family and friends, and taking positive action to shape one's own life. All that and a fun story too, for the cost of five bucks.
I wish someone could pick up where he left off.....
