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.

    Story
    "A story from the past about the past."

    I read this book back in the mid 80's. I love the story but it does drag at times with segments that seem to repeat in different chapters. Overall, great story of survival before it was cool to write about survival.

    Story
    "Loved this book in my youth. but as an adult?"

    I still liked it but there was a lot of repeating of the same themes and it ended abruptly. I still liked it. brought back great memories. Makes me want to spend time in the mountains.

    "Good yarn."

    Well-researched, well-narrated with multiple voices. I hope that someday, someone writes a sequel that tells us what happened to Joe and Talya.

    "Simply a fantastic adventure story"
    Any additional comments?

    I first read this story in Paper Back in the 70’s and it’s just as exciting and engaging in the car forty years on. Well written, crafted characters, good solid story telling at its best. And the subject matter is so clever and engaging. Still one of the best stories I have ever experienced. Really, it’s that good.

    Louis L'Amour is my favorite author and this book did not disappoint. But as with all of his books, I wish it were longer.

    "Outstanding story"

    Great story of the old ways of indians in a modern world. If you enjoy woodsman, Wilderness, and frontier stories. This book is worth the read!
