Summary

After discovering six gold Roman coins buried in the mud of the Devil's Dyke, Barnabas Sackett enthusiastically invests in goods that he will offer for trade in America. But Sackett has a powerful enemy: Rupert Genester, nephew of an earl, wants him dead. A battlefield promise made to Sackett’s father threatens Genester’s inheritance. So on the eve of his departure for America, Sackett is attacked and thrown into the hold of a pirate ship. Genester's orders are for him to disappear into the waters of the Atlantic. But after managing to escape, Sackett makes his way to the Carolina coast. He sees in the raw, abundant land the promise of a bright future. But before that dream can be realized, he must first return to England and discover the secret of his father's legacy.

It's a great backdrop to early settlers in the North American continent

Good characters , an interest storyline and it makes you want to go to the next book, well performed in an accent that I felt matched the characters and the period. I has done also read the book and was convinced by the performance. Very good

Great Start

I heard this audio book a few years ago and decided to buy it to listen again. This is the kick of story for the Saketts series. I listen to these books driving truck and this book is a real mile burner, and one you hate to hear end. However the next in the series (To The Far Blue Mountains) picks up where this book ends. The whole series doesn't do that, but the first few do because it's about a journey from England to America and across America over several generations. Most of the later books are stories of Saketts all over the country in the "Wild West" days of America. So if you're interested in a book that will at least keep you going through the first five books in the series, then this is a powerful start.

I enjoy Louie L'Amour

Louie is GREAT. I have, I believe, every one of his books, in paperback. The choice of the reader of this book, I believe was very good. I have a few of Louie's dramatized audio short stories, that keep your attention the whole book. This reader does very well. His accent is approperate as well. It deserves more than Five Stars. Someone deserves a job; "Well Done".
