In "Sackett," Louis L Amour introduces readers to a wandering man with a desire to settle down and build a good life.
Hard circumstances have made William Tell Sackett a drifter, but now he hungers for a place he can t name yet knows he has to find. South of the Tetons he comes upon a ghost of a trail that leads him through a keyhole pass into a lonely, alien, yet beautiful valley a valley that holds a fortune in gold.
Then he finds an even greater treasure: beautiful Ange Kerry, a courageous and resourceful woman. Yet the harsh ways it takes to preserve his claim and his life could be the one thing that drives Ange away forever.
