Fifteen Montana cowboys and 500 longhorns are embarking on a one-of-a-kind Wild West adventure: a cattle drive across 1,000 miles of Siberia. The clash of cultures between East and West, American six shooter and Russian saber, begins immediately when a band of Cossacks arrives to escort them to their destination. Cowboys and Cossacks must work together or they’ll never survive the journey, which includes a meeting with the warrior Genghis Kharlagawl and his army of bloodthirsty Tartars. The code of the cowboy and the credo of the Cossack offer different measures of manhood - but honor and courage are the same in any language when a common enemy must be faced.

Wonderful surprise to see this come out in audio format. Buccaneer press re-released this a few years back, in a library edition, and was happy to replace my lost paperback edition. The audio edition was a great way to reread it.
Courage, danger, humor, growth. A coming of age story, for a younger member of the cattle drive.
There's a reason they made several of Huffaker's books into movies ... they have the ethic, and spirit you expect in a classic western.
