Youth, independence, strength, and hard-won wisdom are hallmarks of many of Louis L'Amour's most famous characters, and Orlando Sackett exhibits them in abundance. This eighth book in the Sackett series contains a famously raw and rowdy description of a "winner-take-all" boxing match that narrator Josh Hamilton handles with clarity and intensity. Be sure to listen for references to colorful historical characters of the times as Hamilton recounts the stories of Lando's search for lost treasure, a long absent father, and his own redemption. He projects a perfect mixture of youthful Tennessee brashness and the knowledge that a true man of the West will always have to move on. This is L'Amour at his best.
