Mustang Man: The Sacketts: A Novelby Louis L'Amour
Synopses & Reviews
Filled with action, adventure, mystery, and historical detail, the Sackett saga is an unforgettable achievement by one of America's greatest storytellers. In Mustang Man, Louis L'Amour tells the tale of a man who lived by his own law-even if it meant being branded an outlaw. 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.
From the Paperback edition.
When the woman he rescues tries to kill him, first with a shotgun and then with poison, Mustang Man finally gets the messages that she is just no good. Reprint.
Nolan Sackett's attempts to elude a posse hunting him for murder are complicated when he stops to rescue two women who appear to be in trouble.
