The Daybreakers is the first novel Louis L'Amour wrote about the Sackett family. It's the story of two brothers moving west to escape the feuding and poverty of the Tennessee mountains. They join one of the first cattle drives to Kansas, seek their fortunes on the southern plains and finally settle in Mora, New Mexico.

The Daybreakers stands out as one of Louis’ finest novels. It spans a great deal of western history from the early cattle drives to the legal battles and racial tension over land distribution in early New Mexico Territory.

There are 17 Sackett stories, most set in the old west. Louis L’Amour also went back to establish the family’s roots in Elizabethan England. “Sackett’s Land” and “To the Far Blue Mountains” have much of their action set in the British Isles. “The Warrior’s Path” splits it’s local between the Spartan conditions of the early Pilgrim colonies and the tropical chaos of Port Royal, Jamaica, headquarters to the pirates plying the Spanish Main. “Jubal Sackett” travels west to what would become Colorado in the time of the Conquistadors.
