Publisher's Summary

In The Lonely Men, Louis L’Amour spins the tale of a man who must elude an Apache trap - only to discover that his greatest enemy might be very close to home.

Tell Sackett had fought his share of Indians and managed to take something of value from his battles: a deep and abiding respect. But that respect is lost when Apache braves kidnap his nephew, forcing Tell to cross the border into the Sierra Madres to bring the boy back. What troubles Tell more, though, is the boy’s mother: Could she possibly be inventing a rescue mission to deliver her husband’s brother into an ambush?

Tell knows that the only things he can depend on are his wits and cold steel. But against such adversaries, even these formidable weapons may not be enough.

Exciting addition to Sackett series

Loved the story of Tell Sackett. Exciting addition to Sackett series. Did not like long pauses between chapters and sometimes for dramatic effect I suppose

For the love of western literature.

The history of factual American western literature came to an end the day that Louis L'Amour passed away. Someone once said that if Louis wrote about a stream, it was there and the water was good to drink. This book is no exception to that. statement.

Another gripping L'Mour tale that is hard to put down once you start it. Great characters in hard situations.
