Sackett brothers Tell and Orrin head to New Orleans to follow the last trail of their missing father. Clues lead them back to New Mexico, and possibly an answer to a twenty-year mystery. Standard but enjoyable. ( )

Synopsis:


Tell Sackett along with one of his brothers, is trying to find out what happened to their father. Their mother is reaching the end of her life and she wants to know what happened to her husband those many years ago. Tell begins tracking down the last known job his father took and in the process finds out that his father might have been killed for a hidden fortune in gold.

Tell stirs up some issues that people would prefer to stay hidden. While Tell isn't on the trail of the gold, others are and they don't want Tell or his brothers to get any of that gold.

Tell finds out what happened to his father and finds his burial place. At the same time, the gold hunters close in and begin hunting the Sacketts, as Tyrel and Orrin have joined up with Tell. Tell plays hide and seek on a mountain with some of the killers and wins. The other 2 brothers take care of the rest of the badguys off-stage and everything is hunky-dory.

Tell meets a Trelawney girl and plans on settling down in the area so his Ma can live the last of her days in peace.

My Thoughts:

First things first. L'Amour in no way was concerned with story continuity when writing these Sackett books. There is a very loose continuity, but unlike a series today, he deliberately writes in the moment. As he says in his little blurb, he's a myth teller, not a historian. It's only taken me 15 books to really realize this. Wish it had sunk in a little sooner, would have made me stop trying to tie all the books together.

I've noticed that L'Amour likes to have his characters fight it out on the tops and sides of mountains. Raining or at night or something. It does make for a good exciting fight scene.

I like having a dash of western genre in my reading cycle so when I'm done this Sackett series (only 2 more books to go) I'll be checking out either Zane Grey or Max Brand. Probably whichever one my library has a bigger collection of will decide which I go for.

★★★☆½ ( )

Tell Sackett is back in this book with Orrin Sackett, whose taste in women has definitely not improved. This book has an interesting quest to find out what happened to their father. Yes, gold does creep in, but it wasn't the main focus in my mind. And there is another of L'Amour's spunky female characters that I like.

The true love in this book is the land itself. From the canyons around the Red River and the Tucumcari Mountain, to the San Juan mountains, you can feel the love of the land and the freedom it represents.

Were there some less than plausible moments? Yes. But fiction is rarely about "normal" life as it would be boring for the most part. The point is that I really liked the book.

Who else would like it? People who enjoy Westerns or others who have followed the Sackett series. ( )

I was ready to not like this book, since I don't usually read Westerns. However, I found that I enjoyed it quite a bit, after the first chapter. The book starts in third-person, from Orrin Sackett's point of view, but most of the book is first-person, narrated by older brother Tell Sackett. Beginning in New Orleans, the Sackett brothers track down what happened to their father on a treasure hunt 20 years earlier. ( )

Extensive stock footage from 1949's Lust for Gold is used to flesh out the Columbia potboiler Secret of Treasure Mountain. The producers went so far as to hire one of the actors of the earlier film, William Prince, in order to match the old footage with the new. The plot is set in motion some 200 years ago, when a Spanish soldier buries a fortune in gold somewhere in Apache country. Angered at this invasion of their sacred land, the Indians place a curse upon the gold -- and, by extension, upon all those who will come into contact with the precious mineral in the future. The story proper begins in The Present, as a group of adventurers, many of them on the shady side (none shadier than villain Raymond Burr), embark upon a search for the gold. Sure enough, these modern-day prospectors fall victim to the curse one by one, usually as a result of their own greed or lust -- yes, lust, since shapely Valerie French and Susan Cummings are among the gold-seekers.
