You have to have a purpose in life to get anything accomplished Everybody in our part of the country knew of Black Fetchen, so folks just naturally stood aside when he rode into town with his kinfolk With that great opening line, The Skyliners is off and running A few lines later James Black Fetchen his name was, because the name suited He was a dark, handsome man with a bold, hard shouldered way about him, as quick with his fists as with a gun Of course within three pages Black Fetchen is on the scene in downtown Tazewell with brothers Flagan and G Everybody in our part of the country knew of

was, because the name suited He was a dark, handsome man with a bold, hard shouldered way about him, as quick with his fists as with a gun Of course within three pages Black Fetchen is on the scene in downtown Tazewell with brothers Flagan and Galloway Sackett The Galloways get Fetchen and his followers to shuck their artillery peacefully, at first, but soon the bullets are flying The Skyliners is off and running The story starts in Tennessee as the brothers agree to escort a young girl to Colorado in exchange for some horses The trail is full of adventure, gun fights, cougar fights and knife fights Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp show up as Flagan Sackett gets in the middle of a murder investigation in Dodge The book ends in southern Colorado and L Amour pulls the cinch tight on the plot Throughout The Skyliners runs a gentle, brotherly humor Flagan narrates this tale and he brings a wise, semi cynical worldview even as the big clash approaches Galloway, I said I m getting sort of peevish Seems to me we ve let those boys have at us about long enough A time comes when a man just can t side step a fight no longer We ve waited for them to bring it to us, and they d done no such thing, so I figure it s up to you and me to take it to them You give me time for another cup of coffee, Galloway said, and I ll come along with you Good reading.I liked both stories Once again reading about the terrain, nature, and animals are as interesting as the tales Well worth my time. 4.75 stars So the hero has been shot three times, including all the way through his leg and the bullet came out the other side to break apart on the rock behind him, but there s no two ways about this, he knows he has to make it across the gulch regardless, so there he goes, sucking up the blinding pain to run, yes, run out into the open, guns ablazing, taking down a bad guy with every shot, not wasting a single bullet from his six shooter, finally collapsing and passing out in the arms of his beloved,

so picked up this 5 Western classic from a Flying J truck stock in Wyoming Read most of it while waiting out the rain in a Denny s in Montana, trying unsuccessfully to hitchhike out of Billings Flagen and Galloway are different from an other characters L Amour has written thus far Tennessee mountain boys with a mischievious bone in them, they come back from helping William Tell Sackett just in time to create some trouble for themselves Flagan and his brother agree to escort an Irish girl name Judith across the states to be with her father But they create an enemy for themselves in Black Fetchen, who chases after Judith with a dark purpose in mind.L Amour has proved himself to be an Flagen and Galloway are different from an other characters L Amour has written thus far Tennessee mountain boys

Western writer, and I was impressed, once again, of how he can turn a tail and include so much history in his story The Sacketts run into Wyatt Earp during their trek, and the Reynolds treasure plays a part in the tale Flagen was a most impressive character, full of mischief, but still able to sit back and do some contemplating regarding his life and how the chips fell He s the kind of rider a number of men would want to model themselves after, taking note of the wilderness and quite aware of what life has dealt him.Looking forward to the next book in the Sackett line Enjoy I love Louis L Amour Once I even tried to follow some of the Sackett s trails Driving through the mountains, I could see where they rode and why they liked the wide open spaces Louis L Amour writes about history, geography, and conservation, and makes it interesting and fun. The pace was breathtaking I like books where you learn somethingand these did not disappoint. Great I love Louis L Amour, and I ve been reading him for years No one writes of the Old West like this man, and no one tells better stories I always feel like I m right there in the story along with the characters in the book With Louis there s no fluff, no wordy and over long passages of description He gets right to the action You won t find a better writer of western fiction anywhere, not will you read a better novel than the two in this book. ^Read E-pub ⇳ The Sky-Liners / Galloway ⇞ Sackett men narrate troubles heading west to settle, filled with action, adventure, mystery, and historical detail The Sky Liners Flagan and Galloway try to save Judithfrom marrying James Black Fetchen Fletchen gang kill her grandpa Laban Costello and hold pa hostage for Colorado horse breeding ranch Galloway Flagan flees, naked, from Apaches, wolf, to settle north of Shalako with brother Galloway and Nick Shadow despite nasty Dunn family gang
