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.

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.

Louis Lamour Fan

I read this book years ago and have been hoping it would show up on Audible. I've read many of Louis Lamour's books and like the previous reviewer I think this may be his best. It's hard not to think of all the Rambo movies you've seen when reading this book but the main character has less attitude and uses his brains more often than his muscles. Lamour's personal knowledge of survival and tracking techniques as well as history give this book the same feel of authenticity that you'll find in his westerns. If you like adventure I don't think you'll be disappointed.
