Tyrel Sackett was born to trouble, but vowed to justice. After having to kill a man in Tennessee, he hit the trail west with his brother Orrin. Those were the years when decent men and women lived in fear of Indians, rustlers, and killers, but the Sackett brothers worked to make the West a place where people could raise their children in peace. Orrin brought law and order from Santa Fe to Montana, and his brother Tye backed him up every step of the way. Till the day the job was done, Tye Sackett was the fastest gun alive.

The book was good and well rounded. It had many different plots through out the book and was never boring in my opinion. Also the book is only 200 pages or so and doesn't take long to read for the readers who dont like to read those long drawn out books. The plot or plots I should say were very interesting. Tye kills a man to save his brother at his wedding and then must flee his home and head west to find a home for his mother. His brother Orrin heads out with him they incounter many obstacals. They then come into a small ranch town and Orrin falls in love with a blonded woman named Laura Pritts whose father is trying to over take the land of a Spanish Don whose granddaughter Tye falls in love with. Through out the book there is problems with this but finally it all works out and the Pritts must leave town. I very strongly recommend this book to anybody out there and especially to those who like to read of the western days and cowboys. It is just a good and enjoyable way to pass the time Louis L'amour is one of the best western writers of all time so if you want to read about the west sometime try the 'Daybreakers'.

this is the book TV choose to bring to life and one chapter in it is easy to tell why. If I had to give one western to someone that dose not read them this would be the book.I belive this is La'Mours best work.

This is my favorite Sackett Story so far. The Daybreakers tells the story of Orrin and Tyrel Sackett who have to leave their home in Tennessee in a hurry, one step ahead of the sheriff, and head west. It is 1867 and their plan is too try and establish a ranch and then sent for their Mother and the rest of the clan.The two brothers travel across the west and have many adventures that include fighting Indians, rustlers and other assorted bad guys. They work hard to get ahead and also to improve themselves. Along the way they meet many interesting characters and some beautiful women, both of the good and bad types. Making the right life choices, and fighting for justice, this book lays the groundwork for the western Sackett stories to follow. This book makes me eager to read on and find out what happens to this family next. I found Tyrel particularly an enjoyable character, and although L¿Amour relies on many of the same plot tricks to develop his stories, this was a fun read.

First Sackett  novel I have read. I read Down the Long Hills by Louis L’Amour which prompted me to read some more of his work. This book by far is my favorite. You see the world from Tye Sacketts eyes. Its him and his brother trying to round up wild cattle and making a living in Mora. Cant say more because I will spoil it. But amazing story. Cant wait to read another Sackett story.
