Louis L'Amour at his best. Unrealistic only in that the hero defies the overwhelming odds at every turn, keeping you transfixed from first to last, and wishing the author had lived to produce a sequel.
L'Amour sets out of the old west and takes a modern American Indian to Siberia and challenges him to survive. Major Joe Mack more than survives. Reverting to the deep knowledge of his people, he lives with honor and an understanding of himself and the nature of others.
This is one of the best stories ever. Louis Lamour has written so many great books but this one is tops. Loved hearing it again!
An amazingly detail account of a one man army up against two forces. one who would have in caught and chained down the other the forces of a bitter cold winter who would see him frozen to the ground. The only thing on his side were his childhood skills of the long forgotten natives.
This book is simply amazing. Just give it a listen and I'm sure you'll agree. Louis has a way of describing people, landscapes and how they relate and challenge each other. You won't be disappointed
Love David Strathairn's performance in reading this, one of the greatest, if not THE GREATEST, of L'Amour's novels. Superb all the way around!!!!
This is, by far, my absolute favorite book. And the act of choosing David Strathairn to narrate was perfect. This would be such a good movie if they wanted to make it.
