This book was a delightful surprise. I wasn't expecting much from the main character, Echo Sackett, because L'Amour's female characters in other books are often flat and one-dimensional. He blew me away with a strong female character.

I adored the ending of this book, mostly because I expected a different ending (the typical fairy tale ending - girl gets in trouble, dude rides in on a white horse to rescue her). On several occasions, L'Amour sets up a deus ex machina, only to have Echo sidestep it or pull the rug out from under it by making decisions of her own. Echo ain't no fancy city lady waiting for a man to come save her. She's a mountain girl, born and bred in Appalachia (Tennessee), and more than capable of taking care of her dang self.

This book can read as a stand-alone from the rest of the series and I highly recommend it for young adult females.

Here's why I hate it. This is a fantastic book. My all time favorite. But the e-book has DMR which prohibits me from moving it from my PC to my Kindle. I BOUGHT THE DAMNED THING. I OWN IT, but unlike a paperback, I cannot lend it to a friend. I can't even transfer it from my Desk Top PC to my Kindle so I can continue reading in another room.

In the never ending battle to protect income, the publishers have created a real snafu. I will NEVER EVER PURCHASE AN E-BOOK WITH DMR AGAIN. Big fat waste of money. Rather have a paperback which I can get for $0.01 plus shipping (about the same price).

Also, the hoops I had to jump thru to return it were obnoxious. It takes a phone call and a few transfers until you can get someone who speaks English well enough to be undersoood.... even for the most patient of us, this is just too much. Very disappointed in Amazon right now.

L'Amour continues the Sackett series in the early 1800s. Unlike most of his books, this one's main character is a courageous, rifle-toting woman, Echo Sackett. The book, like the others before it, is well done and full of historical and geographic truths.

When I first started to read this book I didn’t like the back woods talk but the I got sucked in and couldn’t put it down. I finished it in 5 days!! I’m not an avid reader but believe I’m becoming one. If your going to start to read this book, enjoy but you might want to start with the first of the Sackett’s saga. They are all very good to me.

Louis L'Amour is the best story teller. There's even some history thrown in. If you love a good story, you can not beat a Louis L'Amour novel. The only problem is there are over 120 of his novels and there are short stories as well. That's a lot of reading.

Who wouldn’t love echo sackett! Small of stature but big in bravery, skill with weapons and knowledge of the backwoods.
Hated to see this story come to a close.

I have always been a Louis L'Amour fan, inherited that trait from my Daddy. My daughter wasn't really into his books until I read this one to her. It is now her favorite. She has since read it 5 or 6 times. I got her this one so she would have her own copy and not keep hijacking mine. :) It is a very good story for girls, showing them they can be strong and independent and beautiful too. I highly recommend it for girls, and boys, of all ages.
