This 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....

If you can get past the explicit and transnational settler colonial overtones this is an excellent book. Well narrated, phenomenally written (what else would you expect from L'Amour?); I was enthralled from chapter 1. I can't over state this, L'Amour is a master story teller!

That being said...jeeze! Settler much? Seriously, L'Amour must use the words "savage" and "red indian" more than Richard H. Pratt πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ its actually kind of astounding.

All in all I found this a romantic, if slightly humorous, romp through the Siberian wilderness.
