“Grub Line Rider”

Most folks would call Kim Sartain an easygoing, peace-loving man. But the few who crossed the young drifter knew there was nothing he liked better than a good fight. When cattleman Jim Targ challenges Sartain’s right to ride across an unclaimed stretch of meadow, Sartain decides he’ll do better than ride through; he’ll put down stakes there and homestead the land. Soon there’s more at risk than land and pride when Targ hires a gunman to teach Sartain a permanent—and deadly—lesson.

“One Last Gun Notch”

Morgan Clyde had been happy working his small ranch until he was driven off of it by a hired gunman. Clyde found odd jobs here and there but soon found himself being hired to use his gun. Now he’s working for a land hog in Red Basin who wants a young homesteader and his wife driven off. The scenario is too familiar, and Clyde finds he must make a hard decision.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A strong case can be made that L’Amour was the most popular American writer of the twentieth century…His books embody heroic virtues that seem to matter now more than ever.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “L’Amour is the kind of storyteller who makes the wolves come out of the woods to listen.”

    People

  • “[L’Amour’s] characterizations, attention to detail, and well-placed surprises make his writing continue to resonate after half a century.”

    AudioFile

  • “L’Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and more often with a desert heatwave boiling up from a sunbaked paragraph. A master storyteller…for reading under the stars.”

    " I love this book, every time. One of Louis L'Amour's best, and that's saying something. This is 2nd in the Sackett series and follows the early settlement of the Sackett family in pre-colonial America. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 6/24/2010

    " Good continuation from the the first book, Sackett's Land. Offer's some interesting thoughts on exploration of America before Jamestown / Plymouth eras. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emery | 4/27/2010

    " This is the second Sackett book. It was much more predictable and left me with the feeling that Barnabus and his wife were both deeply flawed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirt | 3/10/2010

    " Not the best Louis L'Amour book but not bad. I'll keep going with the series for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/10/2010

    " I love the Sackett family. Of course, I always wanted a family tree to help orient myself. I also enjoyed L'Amour's smart, strong women. His writing was fairly forward-thinking, given the time frame in which he was writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik | 12/6/2009

    " Good book, probably a bit longer than it needed to be. It was a good early American adventure tale. L'Amour is a master at setting the scene and of character development. I look forward to reading the next book it the Sackett series. "

    " This is a really good book, I find myself telling him to hurry, run, lol, not wanting him to get hurt, at this point, he's still in England, running from a crime he didn't do. Very sad ending, but really loved the book. "

    " Great book and good combination of adventures. You always know who wins in these books, but so far he does well at forming plots that keep you on your toes. I hope it keeps up. "

    " The second in the Sackett saga and also the second, and final, volume on Barnabas, the founding member of the American Sacketts. I have no reason to change my opinion as described in my Sackett's Land review. "
