Publisher's Summary

Here is the kind of authentically detailed epic novel that is Louis L'Amour's hallmark. It is the compelling story of U.S. Air Force Major Joe Mack, a man born out of time. When his experimental aircraft is forced down in Russia and he escapes a Soviet prison camp, he must call upon the ancient skills of his Indian forebears to survive the vast Siberian wilderness. Only one route lies open to Mack: the path of his ancestors, overland to the Bering Strait and across the sea to America. But in pursuit is a legendary tracker, the Yakut native Alekhin, who knows every square foot of the icy frontier - and who knows that to trap his quarry he must think like a Sioux.

Needed a better editor... interesting plot

Honestly my first Louis L'Amour book and it is his only non-western. Part of it felt a little cheesy and redundant, nothing that a good editor with a red pen couldn't fix in a few hours.The plot was interesting and kept me listening right up to the non-ending end. Probably won't go on my listen to again list... but that said it was an interesting survival story and would make a good movie.

Last of the Breed

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.
