In Jubal Sackett, the second generation of Louis L'Amour's great American family pursues a destiny in the wilderness of a sprawling new land. Jubal Sackett's urge to explore drove him westward, and when a Natchez priest asks him to undertake a nearly impossible quest, Sackett ventures into the endless grassy plains the Indians call the Far Seeing Lands. He seeks a Natchez exploration party and its leader, Itchakomi. It is she who will rule her people when their aging chief dies, but first she must vanquish her rival, the arrogant warrior Kapata. Sackett's quest will bring him danger from an implacable enemy ... and show him a life--and a woman--worth dying for. From the Paperback edition

Hondo Lane was a man who'd come to terms with the hard land in which he lived.

She was a fighter with as much grit and determination as any man. She, too, had carved out a place in this hard and beautiful land, and she wasn't about to leave it without making a stand-for her beliefs, for her son, and for the future

When Flagon and Gallaway Sackett went to the town of Tazewell, Tennessee to pay a debt their father had incurred, they were not looking for trouble. Black Fetchen and his clan had other ideas, but they let the Sacketts get the drop on them. Humiliated, Fetchen swore to get even. He thought he saw a chance to do that when the two men agreed to escort sixteen year old Judith Costello, who had a crush on Fetchen, to her father's ranch in Colorado. With Fetchen and his crowd in hot pursuit, the trio braved the dangers of the prairie. By the time they reached the elder Costello's ranch, Judith had forgotten Fetchen, but he had not forgotten her or the Sacketts. With three good cowhands they met along the trail, the Sackett brothers faced the Fetchens in a protracted gun battle. The three Fetchens who survived beat a hasty retreat back to Tennessee, while Flagon decided Judith just might be the girl for him. Time period: 1875-1879
