A Value.....At Twice The Price

Part of a Special Centennial Edition series - which has two novels in one volume, with a retail cost of $4.99 each - the book features Orrin, Tyrel and William Tell Sackett, which is part of a 17-novel series of the epic story of a quintessential American family. The Daybreakers is a classic story on family, friends, betrayal and justice, as Orrin and Tyrel take different paths to bring peace and prosperity to a frontier town. William Tell's journey in Sackett develops much too quickly over the 151 pages, as he tries to construct a permanent settlement - and laws - to gold-rush territory. These editions are an excellent and inexpensive way to become acquainted to the story-telling techniques of Louis L'Amour. The purchase of all five books is comparable to or cheaper than the cost of one new hardbound.

Now this is a good one!

This happens to be the first Louis Lamour that I have read, but from discussing it with other Lamour fans I have found that this book is one of his best. I really enjoyed it and although I am relatively new to his books (only 7 so far) it is probably my favorite. Lamour has opened the Western genre to me and I am now an avid western reader. This is definitely a good one to start with.

with the wind at my back and a day to kill

I read The Daybreakers in one sitting and not since discovering Conrad,Asimov,and Vonnegut in high school had a book so strongly introduced me into a new genre of fiction. The Daybreakers is the best Sackett book I have read to date. With beautiful imagery of the new american west and thoughtful page devotion to its characters and setting. It has great gunfights and a quick-paced story to back them up. I now find myself as big a fan of the warm frontier years as I was of the cold sterile future. I recommend this book to anyone with enough time to give this great story.

A Great Tale of Our American Heritage

This is a superb Western. It tells the story of our country's rise to greatness with the emergence of self-sufficient families who tamed a harsh wilderness. A glorious tale by America's best teller of tales. If you need a fix now Louis is gone, try Shane or Aymond.

An epic tale of family, hardship, and acheiving manhood.

The Daybreakers is truly a western classic. It tells the tale of two brothers who find themselves alone heading west trying to find a better life for themselves and their family. Along the way they encounter battles from Indians, Renegades, Outlaws, Land-Grabbers, and the betrayel of a good friend. An adventure filled tale packed with gunsmoke, Spanish Haciendas, and the perfume of lovely senoritas. You will not be making a mistake with this one, a prime example of how action/adventure should be. Lamour is at his best with The Daybreakers.
