    Louis L'Amour has almost outdone himself in this one! It is capturing, and adds interesting, new perspectives from flashbacks. The main character, Tatton Chantry, is a gallant Irish gentleman with a rogues skill set. The book places him on the shores of wild America, where he is marooned accidentally, and thrust into a whirlpool of conflicting interests involving treasures, maidens and political betrothals, all the while recouning his earlier exploits in flashbacks.having been burned from his ho [...]

    I know L'Amour is known for his westerns, but my favorite books of his are his early American and European tales. This book fit the bill. The Walking Drum and Jubal Sackett are some of my other top Louis picks.

    This book took me by surprise in how enjoyable it was. I guess I'm a typical "judge a book by the cover" gal (although I try not to be) and the picture on my cover showed a man with a ship in the background. I had always thought I preferred LL's woodsy/mountain/southwest terrain located novels, but this book proved me wrong in that I loved the sea-fairing plots of LL's books. I finished this book about a week ago, and if my memory serves me correctly it is a book placed in the late 1500's (an ag [...]

    Date Read: 12-September-2010I read this book – Fair Blows the Wind” by Louis L’Amour - for a book discussion group. I liked the story and the fact that it was not a western novel typically done by L’Amour but one that takes place mostly in Europe before the population of North America. A few things that I learned from this book: (1) The influence that a father can have on a son; especially a father, who tries to provide a good education and example. (2) The kindness of strangers can make [...]

    In this quick-moving adventure, we meet a mysterious Irishman who is seeking his fortune by sailing to "The New World"America. The characters are colorful and inviting.y swordsmen, ruffians, English Lord's and ladies, poets, Kings, and even an Incan princess.The story is safe for kids to read, no bad language or sex scenes, just exciting action.I removed a star because the ending felt a bit rushed, as if Mr. L'Amour was s trying to stay under a certain word-count.Good if you're in the mood for a [...]

    Do not make the mistake of thinking Louis L'Amour is just a Western writer! This book is a great barn burner and swashbuckler which takes place in Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, Spain, France and a titch in the New World. Our protagonist is launched into the world at an early age when he loses everything, including his family. He joins up with several strong and interesting characters who teach him how to be a savvy swordsman and trader, and who help him become a man. This is adventure story [...]

    I don't normally read much historical fiction. Most books are dry and difficult to read, however Louis L'Amour could make reading a newspaper enjoyable. L'Amour's style is very different from most of the authors I have read. His characters are always so philosophical. They are one side minions floating along to make a story. Most of his characters are usually self taught and have an intelligence that few today seem to have.This book is set before SACKETT'S LAND and TO THE FAR BLUE MOUNTAINS. If [...]

    #1 in the Chantry series (#5 in chronological order). A historical adventure by storyteller Louis L'Amour. Set in the late 16th century, we have the coming of age tale of Tatton Chantry. A descendant of Irish nobility killed by the British, he is on the run and unable to use his rightful name. Largely set in Elizabethan Great Britain, the novel features background characters such as Kit Marlowe, Will Shakespeare and Francis Bacon. Lively and an interesting read.#1 Chantry series - His father kil [...]

    Warning, if you choose to read this book you will be well entertained and may grow to love the series. Fair Blows the Wind by Louis L’Amour is one of his best and most favored books. I liked that the book takes place in Europe during the late 16 hundreds, but Tatton Chantry (the main character) travels other places as well. Some of the pronunciation and vocabulary in this book was interesting, because it was used to fit the setting and time period. This book was very enjoyable to read and it w [...]

    This is a book my husband and I read together (he is a huge Louis L'Amour fan), one of what we call our 'dinner books' because we take turns reading to each other during meals.It was his turn to pick a book and this is the one he chose.This had a slow start but when he switched to the back story (which happens at about the time of the Spanish Armada), I was hooked. Tatton Chantry is the name he adopts when he escapes from the English who have murdered his Irish family and burned their home to th [...]

    His father killed by the British and his home burned, young Tatton Chantry left Ireland to make his fortune and regain the land that was rightfully his. Schooled along the way in the use of arms, Chantry arrives in London a wiser and far more dangerous man. He invests in trading ventures, but on a voyage to the New World his party is attacked by Indians and he is marooned in the untamed wilderness of the Carolina coast. It is in this darkest time, when everything seems lost, that Chantry encount [...]

    Maybe 3.5. Good story.

    Enjoyed the character and voyages on the ship, fights, and suspense

    Such a great book! I love Louis L'Amour and this is one of his best books.

    Louis L'Amour can be argued as one of the greatest storytellers of all time and I would gladly pull my log up closer to the campfire and agree. There is always something simple and wholesome about his stories that keeps a person reading, even if they are not a western lover, as I am not!Always with a moral, always with a lesson, if you read his stories for nothing more then the descriptive word and simple storyline you miss out on the deeper meaning within his pages. I have yet to put down a Lou [...]

    I think I’ve come to the inevitable conclusion that I WANT to like Louis L’Amour’s books more than I actually like them. Reading this book only solidified that opinion.It took me a very long time to finish this book because I stopped and started a few times; even putting it down to read another book before coming back to it.It wasn’t bad, but it simply wasn’t anything new either. And the story seemed to just wander aimlessly with random characters popping in and out for no real reason. [...]

    Interesting change of pace for L'Amour. It's swashbuckling and swordplay and treasure and very well done.

    Hmm. I was following the book order at louislamour for the Talon & Chantry series, and this book is listed as 2nd in the series. Yet, the book is staged in the late 1500s, where Borden Chantry is staged 300 years later. When I look elsewhere online, I see that Fair Blows the Wind is actually listed as the first book in the Chantry series, which chronologically fits.The book centers around Tatton Chantry in the New World shipwrecked in the Carolinas. From there, the book recalls his life as a [...]

    A Great Author & An Excellent Story"Fair Blows the Wind," is another novel by author and Story-Teller, Louis L'Amour. This novel was written in a different style than his other novels and it took me a minute to see where thins may lead, so please continue to read this novel even though at first it seems to o have a slow start. This is a book that I will read again later, just to get every subtle detail I may have missed.The book begins with Captain Tatton Chantery in his present situation bu [...]

    I enjoyed the adventure of the book and the wisdom within it.

    This book wasn't following the norm that I have seen for Louis L'Amour. I am accustomed to his stories of the American Wild West. This novel fares mainly in the old world.

    Angie Lisle
    I'm reading the Chantry and Talon novels in the order suggested on L'Amour's website. Borden Chantry was set in the 19th century American West. Fair Blows the Wind jumps back in time to 16th-century Europe with a 28-year old runaway, an Irish Royal working under the assumed name of Tatton Chantry, who's abandoned on the wild American coast. The writing style is similar to the first two books in The Sacketts series, Sackett's Land and To The Far Blue Mountains, with one exception: a good portion [...]

    This was my first Louis L'Amour read and I was surprised at the content, expecting a Western instead of the constant canvasing of the European continent and later early America during he exploratory era of historyfeating the Spanish Armada, begining of trade to India, etc, which the main character, Tatton Chantry participates in. Great if you love almost constant swashbuckling and male bravado, but it seemed a bit contrived in parts, almost as though L'Amour wanted to demonstrate his knowledge o [...]

    I learned there is only one good book by this author--THE LAST OF THE BREED. Totally unLamourlike. This book was recommended by a customer from the Thrift Store who buys books by the boxful--many much more "intelligent" than I want to read. She told me this one was good. She said I could borrow it. I said that would be great--bring it sometime. She brought me 2 boxes full of Louie Lamour books, all leather bound. Maybe all he ever wrote. There is not space in my house for those books. Couldn't l [...]

    Never in a million years did I ever think I would read a Louis L'Amour book. But the cover - who could resist a cover like this?! And the description on the flap just lured me right in. The first few pages or maybe the whole first chapter were pretty rough and I almost gave up, but boy am I glad I didn't: I loved it! It was such a good, old-fashioned romp. A boy burned out of his home, his dad killed, has to run for his life. He learns to live off his wits, makes friends with the most unlikely a [...]

    This book is a definite 4 out of 5 stars. It starts off when captain Tatton Chantry who went to go find water on the shoreline of the coast of Carolina where he was attacked by Indians and left by his crew. Throughout his struggle in the wilderness he finds help amongst spanish fortune seekers who abandoned there ship after it was "sinking." In the wilderness he has dreams about his childhood where his father was killed and his house burned. He wanted to be the best swordsman in the world. Now p [...]

    2.5 starsI had trouble liking Tatton Chantry as he was kind of full of himself. The book also relies too much on flashbacks. As Tatton is alive and fine in the main story, there's no suspense in the book within the flashbacks. The reader knows right away he's going to come out alive and with everything working right. It ruins the story for me. It would have been better as two separte stories: one where we get Tatton's background and the other what became of him when he was marooned in America, n [...]

    I may have read all of L'Amour's acknowledged books, and own most of them. The first one I read was "Last of the Breed" after which I had to see why people liked the author's other works too. I suspect the era of "trashing" the entire Western genre is responsible in part for the neglect one of our country's greatest story-tellers has been accorded. L'Amour had a way with words and with stories that is unmatched in modern literature. Mark Twain and O'Henry are given more credit for less interesti [...]

    Standard Louis Lamour - a great story teller. In his westerns he followed or created three families for which he wrote across a number of books. This is one of those families, whose beginnings is in Irland. This family is the Chantry's. He wrote five books for this fictious family.Any who read this author will know what I mean, plenty of conflict, most of the time the protagonist isn't one looking for trouble, but when it comes does not walk away, but wades in and tries to overcome the circumsta [...]

    In my house growing up one thing we had an abundance of was old Louis L'amour paper back novels. Most of these were 160 some page westerns but one day I picked up this thicker than normal book that had more of a swashbuckling* pirate type character on the cover than the usualy lone gunfighter figure. I started reading and it quickly became one of the most fun reads I've ever had. For anyone looking for a really fun adventure filled with pirates, indians, swordfights and duels I highly recommend [...]
