This is the first half of the story of Barnabus, the patriarch of the Sackett clan, and his migration to North America in 1600. His saga begins when he discovers a purse of gold coins in the mud of Devil's Dyke in Finland. On the run from English authorities, he meets and marries Abigail Tempany, the daughter of a sea captain. Nick Bardle, the master of a merchant vessel, the Jolly Jack, is half pirate, ready to take any advantage of any activity promising a profit. He shanghais Barnabus, intending to lose him overboard somewhere en route to the Indies. Barnabus proves too good a seaman to waste, and his murder is delayed too long. He and others escape and travel inland.

Some "think" Louis L'amour was just a great western writer. Sackett's Land is the first book in a series that spans almost 300 years. Barnabas Sackett started from England in the 1600's. Really, this is a historical novel. What makes this book so good is that it has the right mix of adventure, romance and historical significance. We thought this series was so good we added this audio book (in particular) and other Sackett Series books to our library. (click on "videos" tab to SEE VIDEO REVIEW)

“I would not wait for some vague tomorrow, nor for something to happen. One could wait a lifetime, and find nothing at the end of waiting. I would begin here, I would make something happen.”
