By Louis L'Amour
In Ride the River, Louis L’Amour spins the story of a tender lady who has to guard her kin fortune from a murderous thief and train him what it potential to be a Sackett. Sixteen-year-old Echo Sackett had by no means been faraway from her Tennessee home—until she made the lengthy trek to Philadelphia to assemble an inheritance. Echo may perhaps look after herself in addition to any Sackett guy, yet James White, a pointy urban attorney, figured that dishonest the money from the younger woman will be like taking sweet from a toddler. If he couldn’t hoodwink Echo out of the money, he’d simply scouse borrow it from her outright. And if she submit a struggle? there have been lots of injuries which could ensue to a rustic lady on her first journey to the massive urban.
