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.

    "Held captive This is one of the books that I have been held captive by"

    Even though it takes in modern times it has an old feel to it. This is a great book and done extremely well.

    As a police officer, I spend a lot of time driving around. Whereas I can't read many books, I sure enjoy listening to books.

    "Epic survival thriller!"

    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.

    "Wonderful story"

    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.
