After discovering six gold Roman coins buried in the mud of the Devil's Dyke, Barnabas Sackett enthusiastically invests in goods that he will offer for trade in America. But Sackett has a powerful enemy: Rupert Genester, nephew of an earl, wants him dead. A battlefield promise made to Sackett's father threatens Genester's inheritance. So on the eve of his departure for America, Sackett is attacked and thrown into the hold of a pirate ship. Genester's orders are for him to disappear into the waters of the Atlantic. But after managing to escape, Sackett makes his way to the Carolina coast. He sees in the raw, abundant land the promise of a bright future. But before that dream can be realized, he must first return to England and discover the secret of his father's legacy.

Industry Reviews

Louis L'Amour is a prolific pro, a charmer with a lot of heart, modesty and good will. In his present work, he abandons his familiar six-gun territory out in the cactus for Elizabethan England, the high seas and the Florida coast. And he carries off this installment of a 40-volume series about the American frontier with a light sure touch that will have his competitors mapping at their wives. In 1599, virtuous Barnabas Sackett, a young eel-fisherman who lives in an English fen and yearns for a better life, finds some antique gold coins and sells them to a collector. He also offends a vicious nobleman who chases him all over London, through Shakespeare's Globe theater, and finally has him shanghaied to the New World. But a shipload of Sackett's friends follow, on their way to trade with the Indians. Sackett jumps ship in Florida, barters with the tribes, rescues pretty Abigail Tempany, and at fadeout he and Abigail are bound again for the peninsula of our senior citizens - where they will produce volume upon volume of Sacketts to come.
