In Lonely on the Mountain, Louis L’Amour’s solitary wandering Sackett brothers make a stand together—to save one of their own.

Logan faces starvation or a hanging if Tell can’t drive a herd of cattle from Kansas to British Columbia before winter. To get to Logan, he must brave prairie fires, buffalo stampedes, and Sioux war parties. But worse trouble waits, for a mysterious enemy shadows Sackett’s every move across the Dakotas and the Canadian Rockies. Tell Sackett has never abandoned another Sackett in need. He will bring aid to Logan—or die trying.

In Mustang Man, Louis L’Amour takes Nolan Sackett on a dangerous journey into family betrayal, greed, and murder.
When Nolan Sackett met Penelope Hume in a cantina at Borregos Plaza, the girl immediately captured his attention. That she was heir to a lost cache of gold didn’t make her any less desirable. But Penelope isn’t the only one after her grandfather’s treasure; Sylvie, Ralph, and Andrew Karnes, distant relatives with no legal claim to the gold, are obsessed with claiming the Hume fortune for themselves. Their all-consuming sense of entitlement recklessly drives them to ambush and murder. Even if Sackett and Penelope are fortunate enough to escape this deadly trio and find the canyon where the gold is hidden, Indian legend has it that nothing will live there—no birds or insects. They say it is filled with the bones of men.

He could outride and outshoot five men, but he was a fool for a lady in distress. The posse was hot on his trail for murder when he took time out to rescue Sylvie from a gang of desperadoes. It wasn't till she'd bushwhacked him with a shotgun and tried to poison him that he realized she was up to no good. And no sooner he had he shot his way out of her clutches than he met Penelope. After he'd heard her sad story, he should have cut and run, but somehow a Sackett never seem s to learn the easy way.

Lost gold on the Santa Fe trail.
Nolan Sackett was running ahead of a posse when he stopped to help a wagon stuck on the plains.But why was it stranded in the middle of nowhere with a beautiful-and murderous-young woman? Nolan was trying to find out when he ran into Penelope Hume, another attractive lady. She was the key to a cache of gold hidden in the mountains. But to get the rightful heiress there first, Nolan would have to help her beat out jealous relations, paid assassins, and a killer without a conscience...all maddened by gold fever.
He was born in the swamps of the Eastern States, but he came of age on the frontier. Now, Jean LaFarge finds himself swept up in an epic battle in the wilds of Alaska, where a tyranical Russian has seized control of the fur trade-and the land. But Jean has never backed down from a fight, even one as bold and dangerous as this-a battle that will shape the future of America.
The story of Jean LaBarge and his northwestward trek in quest of gold and adventure is the basis of this novel. Leaving his home in the Great Swamp near the Susquehanna, LaBarge joins the ranks of fur-trappers and goes to San Francisco where he involves himself with operators, of noble Russian birth. Intrigue gets underway very quickly when he aligns himself with Count Rotcheff and his lovely royal wife to deliver wheat to the city of Sitka in Alaska, an ostensibly forbidden game. Count Zinnovy, aware that Rotcheff has been an instigator, retaliates by wounding him, thus preventing his return to St. Petersburg. At the behest of Count Rotcheff, LaBarge accompanies the beautiful Helena Rotcheff, a niece of the Czar, over icy waters and safely home. He falls in love with her, of course, but she, still married, is inaccessible. As a reward for this trip he is given an audience with the Czar to discuss the possibility of annexing Alaska to the United States. When he returns to Sitka, he is arraigned by his arch-enemy, Baron Zinnovy, but unsuccessfully so. At the crucial moment when LaBarge is to be adjudged guilty by the Russian court, a pronunciamento is delivered that Alaska is a territory of the United States and the Czar has issued a decree all prisoners and potential prisoners in Sitka were to be released as a celebration of this transaction! LaBarge is free and free also to marry Helena (since her husband has died in the interim). All ends well, but by this time the reader is rather exhausted and somewhat bored with the whole procedure.

In Treasure Mountain, Louis L’Amour delivers a robust story of two brothers searching to learn the fate of their missing father—and finding themselves in a struggle just to stay alive.
Orrin and Tell Sackett had come to exotic New Orleans looking for answers to their father’s disappearance twenty years before. To uncover the truth, the brothers enlisted the aid of a trailwise Gypsy and a mysterious voodoo priest as they sought to re-create their father’s last trek. But Louisiana is a dangerous land, and with one misstep the brothers could disappear in the bayous before they even set foot on the trail—a trail that led to whatever legacy their father had left behind . . . and a secret worth killing for.
