Publisher Description

“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.

Quotes

  • “Featuring L’Amour’s usual detailed realism and crisp stereotypes…the novel becomes a duel of pursuit and escape amid fantastic frigidity…For sheer adventure L’Amour is in top form…Marrying elements of today’s political suspense novel to survival skills in the Wild West, he’s right on target for a monster crossover bestseller.”

    - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • “Once again demonstrating his versatility, the prolific L’Amour has written a contemporary adventure novel set in the ‘Wild East’ of Siberia.”

    - Library Journal
  • “Readers of L'Amour’s Westerns and his recent medieval saga The Walking Drum will not be disappointed by this contemporary epic. Proving that he is above all a great raconteur, the prolific L’Amour sets his latest in Siberia where a downed American test pilot, Joseph ‘Joe Mack’ Makatozi, has been taken after his capture by the Russians…L’Amour brings the same colorful realism to this sweeping adventure that has made his Westerns so beloved.”
