Excellent Historical Fiction
Reviewed in the United States on June 10, 2015
It's nice to get these five books together in one collection for the less than the price you would pay for each title individually in the Amazon Kindle store. What I also appreciate is the Sackett books are in historical, not date written, order as you can chronicle the lives of the Sackett clan through early American history.
Louis L'Amour was not one of the most technical or long-winded writers, he was short, succinct, and to the point and had a way that grabs you into the story immediately. The descriptions of the scenery, events, people, and situations made you feel as if you were right there living it side-by-side with his characters.
With the first five books of the series, you not only have the classic Louis L'Amour situations with the good guy fighting the bad guy, a life-threatening conflict, the good guy wins and gets the girl, you also get more of a historical educational aspect of the life and times of late 1500 – 1600’s England and the New World.
As I type this review, this combination of the five stories is priced at $22.99, compared to $5.99 each if you bought them on a standalone basis in the Kindle format: the $22.99 for all five is a good value vs. approximately $30 on an individual basis - you'll get a lot more than $22.99 of entertainment out of these!
