I have listened and read many of Louis L'Aour's books. In my opinion this is the best of his books. However I must say the ending was written for a sequel that was never written. Be prepared for an amazing ending.

As Louis L'amour is known for his "western" books, this book may seem a little out of place. It's not. It's basically a western set in Siberia Russia. The main character is of native American descent and uses his knowledge of the wilderness to survive in Siberia. Knowing that Siberia is larger than the United States, it is slightly farfetched that the Russian officers are able to track Joe Mack as his transverses the entire Asian continent. Time and time again they find him and I kept saying, "you must be kidding". It's similar to finding one person in all of the Canadian wilderness, or millions of square miles. While Joe is escaping he also manages to acquire a " love interest" that even makes it more farfetched. Although a decent listen, all the tromping through the woods gets tedious at times.

Great story, well read. Evocative imagery set in a Cold War world. Louis L’Amour at his best.
This is a story that keeps you listening way after you should be asleep! I wish Louis Lamour had written a sequel though - my only disappointment with this story,
