In To the Far Blue Mountains, Louis L’Amour weaves the unforgettable tale of a man who, after returning to his homeland, discovers that finding his way back to America may be impossible.
Barnabas Sackett was leaving England to find his fortune in the New World. But as he settled his affairs, he learned that a Royal warrant had been sworn out against him, and that men were searching for him in every port. At issue were some rare gold coins Sackett sold to finance his trip to the Americas — coins believed to be part of a great treasure lost by King John years before.
Believing that Sackett possesses the rest of the treasure, the Queen will stop at nothing to find him. If caught, not only will his dream of a life in American be lost, he will be tortured and put to death on the gallows.
