about

“For sheer adventure L’Amour is in top form.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
Here is the kind of authentically detailed epic novel that has become 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.

About The Author

Born in Jamestown, North Dakota on March 22, 1908, Louis L'Amour's adventurous life could have been the subject of one of his novels. Striking out on his own in 1923, at age 15, L'Amour began a peripatetic existence, taking whatever jobs were available, from skinning dead cattle to being a sailor. L'Amour knew early in life that he wan...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel Across Siberia with Mack I was given this book by one of my Bookcrossing friends. Its been sitting around for ages waiting to reach the top of my 'To Be Read' stack. Shame on me for waiting so long. I was expecting a cowboy story, as thats what I thought Mr. L'Amour was known for writing. I couldn't have been more wrong. Actually it is an Indian story. Joe Mack is a US Air Force Major and he test pilots new airplanes. He is forced down in the ocean off Russia and captured. Now he has to escape before the torture can begin. The story then follows Mack across Siberia. This was a well written novel with great character development. For a book first published in 1988, it hasn't lost its intrigue or its ability to captivate. Yes, the Soviet Union has changed much in a political sense, but the sweeping vista of Siberia will yet be dramatic and vast. As I could hardly put this book down, I will be adding Louis L'Amour to my future reading lists.
