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 Ride the Dark Trail L'Amour tells the story of Logan Sackett, a cynical drifter who changes his ways to help a widow keep her land from falling into the wrong hands.

Logan Sackett was wild and rootless, riding west in search of easy living. Then he met Emily Talon, a fiery old widow who was even wilder than he was. Tall and lean, Em was determined to defend herself against the locals who were trying to steal her land.

Logan didn't want to get involved, until he found out that Em had been born a Sackett. Em was bucking overwhelming odds, but Logan wouldn't let her stand alone. For even the rebellious drifter knew that part of being a Sackett was backing up your family when they needed you.

Another part of the Sackett family tree heard from.

A story to move any reader. A drifting man not particular about which side of the law he's landed on this time, a lady of the frontier who's reached her silver years and not allowed to enjoy them, and a greedy, conniver who doesn't miss a trick to eliminate the elder woman to take the ranch she's defending. Finding that the drifter and the lady are relatives from the same hills of Tennessee, the lines drawn in the sand and the family pulls together the way we all wished our own would. One of my favorite Sackett books, this audio rendition brings it into a new sphere of enjoyment. The narrator gave a right on performance!

poor editing

Excellent story and terrific narration. The recording was obviously edited for time and the beginning of several sections were cut off. This didn't detract from the story but it was a little annoying.

Best Narrator

There has been some pretty good narration of Louis L'amour books and some not so good ones. IMO this was the best!

The Sacketts are a great series.

Louis L'Amour and the Sacketts are like old friends to me. I have read the books many times and have now started listening to them. The language is clean and the descriptions of violence are not too graphic. If you enjoy Western or frontier stories the Sacketts are almost can't miss.
