  • "Young Echo Sackett, who is a sure hand with a horse, a dead shot with a rifle, and fast with her wits, travels to the mountains of Tennessee, where she encounters ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to cheat her of her inheritance."@en
  • "Echo Sackett is one of the few women mentioned of the family. She is young, but she is a better shot than her brothers. Echo is also a strong female character who still aspires to be ladylike and not masculized. But she still knows to "expect Higginses" when she finds she is due an inheritance and travels alone to retrieve it. Fortunately, being a woman is an advantage in a world of men who will underestimate her abilities. I admire L'Amour for writing such a strong, young female character. Girls may become interested in reading westerns after their introduction to Echo Sackett."@en
