Fifteen Montana cowboys and five hundred longhorns are embarking on a one of a kind Wild West adventure: a cattle drive across a thousand miles of Siberia. The clash of cultures between East and West, American six shooter and Russian saber, begins immediately when a band of Cossacks arrives to escort them to their destination. Cowboys and Cossacks must work together or they’ll never survive the journey, which includes a meeting with the warrior, Genghis Kharlagawl, and his army of bloodthirsty Tartars. The code of the cowboy and the credo of the Cossack offer different measures of manhood, but honor and courage are the same in any language when a common enemy must be faced.

    " Frankly, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this read. This was my first foray into the western genre and while it encompassed many of the traits one would expect from the genre such as cowboys and the herd, it was truly unusual and a bit over the top. I would recommend this book to any person, man or woman, who wants a really fantastic story with compelling, well thought out characters. I couldn't help but feel a bit sad when it all came to an end. Also worth noting are the fantastic illustrations by Brad Holland in this edition. "

    " I love this book and have read it several times over the years. It isn't the typical western. "

    " I was a little disappointed in this book because it received such high ratings and was recommended by the author of Booklust. The story line was good, about a group of Montana cowboys delivering cattle to a group of "free" Cossacks in Russia in 1880. I found the description of the clash between cultures (cowboys, Cossacks), between the free Cossacks and the Tsar's Cossacks, and between the TarTars and everyone very interesting. But the book was a "Western," written for young adults in the 1970s. There were too many "poignant" moments and meaningful words (although, keeping with the cowboy theme, they were short). The two heros were way too stereotyped. The narrator explained everything that occurred, leaving the reader no chance to figure things out for herself. All in all, I may have liked the book better if I'd read it when I was younger, but I was looking for more depth, history, description of the country... "

    " I requested this book via InterLibrary Loan after hearing so many good reviews about it on a librarian listserv (Fiction-L). This story is told through the eyes of a young cowboy who is employed by the Slash Diamond ranch in Wyoming. He and his coworkers were hired to take/drive long horned cattle to a town in Russia (over in/near Siberia). The interaction between the men, the cowboys and the cossacks who join them, is what makes the story. The tale is well told and well worth tracking down via your local library if you enjoy westerns.
