Ride the River by Louis L'Amour
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this. A quick read, it had what you would want from a Sackett novel. Action, beautifully detailed descriptions of the countryside, and interesting characters. I liked Echo a lot. I wish we had more about her, but I am not sure how much of a role she plays in the later Sackett novels. L'Amour does, I think, a good job with the challenge of writing from a female point of view. She is not just a 'Sackett in skirts,' so to speak, nor is she a damsel in distress. She is a tough, witty, knowledgeable, solid character. She takes care of herself thank you very much.
