Publisher's Summary

His father killed by the British and his home burned, young Tatton Chantry left Ireland to make his fortune and regain the land that was rightfully his. Schooled along the way in the use of arms, Chantry arrives in London a wiser and far more dangerous man. He invests in trading ventures, but on a voyage to the New World his party is attacked by Indians and he is marooned in the untamed wilderness of the Carolina coast. It is in this darkest time, when everything seems lost, that Chantry encounters a remarkable opportunity....

Suddenly all his dreams are within reach: extraordinary wealth, his family land, and the heart of a Peruvian beauty. But first he must survive Indians, pirates, and a rogue swordsman who has vowed to see him dead.

Awesome audio book!!

I read this book years ago so hearing the audio was great. No one can write like Louis Lamour. The narrator was really good and brought the story to life. Enjoyed it so much!!

Amazing adventure with a beautifully crafted end

This story was different than L'Amour's typical style. Then again, I'm used to his western tales. However, it was truly great. I felt like he did his research on the Irish, pirating, and the use of a sword quite well.

The narrator, John Keating, was very good, although I felt many lines of dialogue could have used more fitting emotion per character. It seemed like everyone in the book talked a bit too gleefully. No matter, his Irish accent added a lot to the feel and I enjoyed the story very much.

The end of the story was very gripping and poetically beautiful. Very powerful. Loved it!

Broken story line

Deserted on an island, then back in London, then back to the island. Ok once you understand what’s happening.
