L'amour, Louis - Sackett's 19. He knew we were riding into something, he knew there might be the smell of gunpowder, but he liked it, too. You could sense it in the way he moved.

L'amour, Louis - Sackett's 19. You could sense it in the way he moved feelings and ways, for no two are alike, and I was one to make companions of my horses, and they seemed to understand. They knew we were in this together. Time and again, I drew up to listen. A man can't ride careless into wild country.

Lonely On The Mountain. Sackett 19. Louis L’amour. Chapter I. There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. The Sioux hadn’t come upon us yet, but they were about, and every man-jack of us knew it. It could be they hadn’t cut our sign yet, but cut it they would, and when they did, they would come for us. We were seven men, including the Chinese cook, in no shape to fight off a bunch of Sioux warriors if they came upon us.

In Lonely on the Mountain, Louis L’Amour’s solitary wandering Sackett brothers make a stand together-to save one of their own. The rare letters Tell Sackett received always had trouble inside. And the terse note from his cousin Logan is no exception. The Sackett Brothers didn’t know what kind of trouble had Cousin Logan treed up yonder but he needed beef cattle badly. So with Tell Sackett ramrodding, Tyrel, Orrin, and Cap Rountree ride north to the wild country–pushing 1100 head of fat steers across the wide Dakota plains toward the mountains of far western Canada. Past Sioux, past Logan’s treacherous enemies, through trails no cattle had ever crossed, the Sacketts drive on.

Louis Dearborn L'Amour (/ˈluːi ləˈmʊər/; March 22, 1908 – June 10, 1988) was an American novelist and short-story writer. His books consisted primarily of Western novels (though he called his work "frontier stories"); however, he also. His books consisted primarily of Western novels (though he called his work "frontier stories"); however, he also wrote historical fiction (The Walking Drum), science fiction (Haunted Mesa), non-fiction (Frontier), as well as poetry and short-story collections. Many of his stories were made into films.

Lonely on the Mountain was published in 1980, as was The Warrior's Path, with Ride the River published in 1983 and Jubal Sackett in 1985. I think L'Amour expected to return to Logan and Tell, as the ending of this book sets up the start of another town, but L'Amour may have passed away before he could do so. I know the L'Amour family promised to continue publishing his unpublished manuscripts but those haven't appeared on the market (where's a ghost-writer when ya need one?)

Several of the Sackett gang appears in this story - William Tell, and both his brothers, Orrin and Tyrell, ride out to rescue cousin Logan locked up in a British Columbian jail.

The POV changes between characters a few times, but we readers mostly ride with William Tell. The POV changes should've helped break the monotony except all the characters are doing the same thing - riding a lonely trail through the grasslands spreading out at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, each character looking for the others because of stuff that keeps separating them (no spoilers).

Despite all that, three-quarters of the book kept me involved. The book was headed for four-stars but L'Amour rushed right through the ending, failing to deliver the promised showdown.

This book might fall into the final position of The Sackett's chronological order, but it wasn't last book published. Lonely on the Mountain was published in 1980, as was The Warrior's Path, with Ride the River published in 1983 and Jubal Sackett in 1985. I think L'Amour expected to return to Logan and Tell, as the ending of this book sets up the start of another town, but L'Amour may have passed away before he could do so. I know the L'Amour family promised to continue publishing his unpublished manuscripts but those haven't appeared on the market (where's a ghost-writer when ya need one?).

[GRRM could take a lesson here - ol' man, hurry up and finish your series before you die so you don't leave readers hanging like L'Amour did.]

But there's the Talon and Chantry novels to look forward to; I'm hoping the spin-off series (finished by 1981) will minimize the gap that's left by the abrupt ending of this series.

Most of L'Amour's stories are fast paced, exciting plots with extraordinary descriptions of the early days and landscape of Western America. Not so much this one. I understand the Sackett series is considered one of his most beloved but I didn't feel it. I had not read the previous books in the series which might account for very incomplete characters in this one. Quite a few characters were stuck in and out with no clear picture about where they came from or why. They didn't "happen" in this story but seemed to just be there. My biggest problem was one brother leaving behind another brother who clearly was suffering or possibly dead. The Sacketts are constantly explained as always willing to come to the aid of one another but, yet, he was left behind so that cattle could be driven for sale. The ending was rushed, unbelievable, and somewhat unresolved-possibly so that the next stories in the series can carry them along. Cattle drives are, by their nature, long and boring. This story was long and boring with occasional drama in fits and starts. Unsatisfying. I am a huge fan of L'Amour but will skip the Sacketts.

The Sackett series by L'Amour is full of high adventure, great characterizations with sprinkles of romance.....however this edition does not deliver. The first two thirds of the novel is slow and plodding....then the story finally gets moving but the end is rushed and never delivers a punch.
I suspect either L'Amour had a contractual obligation to deliver a book and rushed through it or he took
a short story and added a lot of filler. It may be an indicator that most L'Amour kindle edition books are $5.99 but this one is $3.03.........hey even a master writer like L'Amour can have a bad day.

I have loved the Sacketts since I saw the made-for-TV movie in the 80s. We bought every Sackett book we could at used book stores. Now I have become an eBook reader because it is so much easier on my arthritis, I am gradually replacing all of my beloved paperbacks and hardbacks with eBooks so I will still be able to read them. Any Sackett book will be filled with adventure, excitement, danger, and most certainly, love. One of the Sackett brothers or cousins is always running into an unexpected woman who knocks him for a loop. That just adds spice to the danger.

In Lonely on The Mountain the three Sackett brothers; Tell, Orin, and Tyrel, have to come up with a herd of cattle to deliver before winter set in in the high mountain gold mining country. Their cousin Login gave his word and took the money to buy the cattle, but now he is missing. Before he went missing he wrote a letter to Tell in Abilene, Kansas. Tell, Cap Roundtree, and Tyrel had just arrived in Abilene from a cattle drive and had sold their herd. Everyone was looking forward to clearing off some debts left over from a very dry summer. While eating at the Drover's Cottage the postal clerk came up to Tell and told him he had an important message for him that had come two days earlier. Tyrel offered to read the letter. Logan had promised to provide several hundred head of cattle to some starving miners and their families before winter set in; but, the money was gone the cattle were gone, he was being held captive, and he was facing a hanging. He needed their help. P.S. You can expect Higginses. That was Sackett code for real trouble!

This comes up under the Kindle Edition of Louis L'Amour. I was expecting a Sackett book. I was less than a chapter in, and I could tell this wasn't Louis L'Amour. Who the heck is Barry Ray?!? Does this guy even have an editor? Can't tell the difference between your and you're, do and due, by and buy, scarring and scaring... Where can I get the Kindle version of the real Louis L'Amour book?

And went hunting in search of something to shoot I was a Sackett before I knew what a Sackett was. This is a good read but not being familiar with the land sometimes it gets a little hard to work out where everyone on the mountain is at any given time. I like some of his other books more because of the local not the characters which I love. I never met a bad Sackett although Nolan might be part bad. I can't say that for Logan because he was the first Sackett I met in Ride the Dark Trail.

More very good western reading. This story has all the information to keep you informed and interested. Read this book and I think you are going to appreciate it.
