Tyrel Sackett was born to trouble, but vowed to justice. After having to kill a man in Tennessee, he hit the trail west with his brother Orrin. Those were the years when decent men and women lived in fear of Indians, rustlers, and killers, but the Sackett brothers worked to make the West a place where people could raise their children in peace. Orrin brought law and order from Santa Fe to Montana, and his brother Tye backed him up every step of the way. Till the day the job was done, Tye Sackett was the fastest gun alive.

    " I enjoyed this book. A tough loner finds a woman and saves her and her son from the Apache's. Too bad his dog had to die. "

    " "Hondo" did not disappoint. I expected a dated, romanticized, somewhat corny yarn, with enough action and Apache factoids to keep it interesting. That's exactly what it is. "

    " Sparse concise narrative within a very good story. This is one of the few novels I've read twice - 1954 & 2008; just enjoyable the second time around. The John Wayne movie isn't bad either. "

    " This is a novel length version of a short story, and is even better. You get to know the main characters. Plus, I've always admired L'Amours' portrayal of Native Americans as real people. They're neither villains nor victims, just people who were very different from Europeans. "

    " Read for my genre class. Strong silent Hondo Lane meets the beautiful and independent Angie Lowe in the Arizona desert. Together with her son Johnny they withstand Apache uprisings and the evils of man. Hondo is part western, part romance, and all action. "

    " If you liked Lonesome Dove, you will enjoy L'Amour's writing too. This is a great story about cowboys, Indians and how they all got along. "
