Publisher's Summary

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 The Warrior's Path, L'Amour tells the story of Yance and Kin Sackett, two brothers who are the last hope of a young woman who faces a fate worse than death.

When Yance Sackett's sister-in-law is kidnapped, Yance and his brother Kin race north from Carolina to find her. They arrive at a superstitious town rife with rumors, and learn that someone very powerful was behind Diana's disappearance.

To bring the culprit to justice, one brother must sail to the exotic West Indies. There, among pirates, cutthroats, and ruthless "businessmen", he will apply the skills he learned as a frontiersman to an unfamiliar world, a world where one false move means instant death.

Another Good One

This is another good Lamour book. The narrator is the same from book one and two. He does a good job with the different characters. I was afraid that I would be tired of the story line after the first two books, but that was not the case. This book was just as good and kept my attention.

If you like the first three Sackett books you might also like books by G.A. Henty ("In the Reign of Terror" is a good one to start with or "The Cat of Bubastes".). Lots of history and adventure that's good for all ages.

A Good Western or A Good Eastern?

Amazing! A Western that goes Eastern and does it well. Another l'Amour twister that goes sailing off to the not too far East and returns with all the treasures sought got. John
Curless gives another flawless performance. Typical? Yes, for both author and narrator. Don't miss this one.......three high fives

Good book for sure, GREAT performer/reader!!

I really enjoy the historical parts of his stories. I often look up what he refers to just to verify what is read.

I get a bit irked at the constant repetition of Kin’s rendition of facts. Quite often he repeats what he just said, but a little different. Then again a few lines down. Then again paragraph away. Why Mr. L’Amour does this seems to fill up the story.

Other than that, I enjoy a story that has excitement and tension, and interesting characters. Plus learning some history along the way.

Well worth it, and John Curless is by far the best of all the performer/readers of the L’Amour books.

L'Amour

There will never be a more geographically and historically accurate author than Louis L'Amour. Someone once wrote of him (L'Amour) that if he wrote about a spring, that spring was there and the water was good to drink.
