Overview

Wilderness explorer Jubal Sackett was the son of Barnabas Sackett, the first of that name to come to the New World. Jubal feared no man, nor backed away from any challenge. His fierce determination to blaze new trials took him across the vast, savage North American continent where no white man had been before. Living and fighting among the Indian tribes, Jubal Sackett forged a legend as a powerful medicine man they called "Ni'kwana, master of mysteries". And with Itchakomi, the proud Natchez princess, he walked the path of courage that future Sacketts would follow.

The overview is incorrect. It should read: Jubal Sackett's urge to explore drove him westward, and when a Natchez priest asks him to undertake a nearly impossible quest, Sackett ventures into the endless grassy plains the Indians call the Far Seeing Lands. He seeks a Natchez exploration party and its leader, Itchakomi. It is she who will rule her people when their aging chief dies, but first she must vanquish her rival, the arrogant warrior Kapata. Sackett's quest will bring him danger from an implacable enemy ... and show him a life -- and a woman -- worth dying for. This is Louis L'Amour as his best and the reading excellent.

John Curless' spoken rendition of L'Amour's books about the early settlers to America are always well performed and compelling. You learn alot of history in these books!

The best of the best.

I listen to dozens and dozens of audio books. But this is the very best I've ever heard. I could listen to it time and time again. The narrator and the story were so captivating, but it was hard to leave it to get some work done. Five stars plus.
