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.

Great story

Great story, well read. Evocative imagery set in a Cold War world. Louis L’Amour at his best.

Compelling story

This is a story that keeps you listening way after you should be asleep! I wish Louis Lamour had written a sequel though - my only disappointment with this story,

A western "indian" story set in Siberia

As Louis L'amour is known for his "western" books, this book may seem a little out of place. It's not. It's basically a western set in Siberia Russia. The main character is of native American descent and uses his knowledge of the wilderness to survive in Siberia. Knowing that Siberia is larger than the United States, it is slightly farfetched that the Russian officers are able to track Joe Mack as his transverses the entire Asian continent. Time and time again they find him and I kept saying, "you must be kidding". It's similar to finding one person in all of the Canadian wilderness, or millions of square miles. While Joe is escaping he also manages to acquire a " love interest" that even makes it more farfetched. Although a decent listen, all the tromping through the woods gets tedious at times.

Excellent, Great entertainment, well written.

Would you consider the audio edition of Last of the Breed to be better than the print version?

I had not realised how good this audio book was until I discovered the next few I tried to listen. Not this one, I was hood from beginning to end and the readers voice was clear. Excellent, Great entertainment, well written. One of the best.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Action adventure

Any additional comments?

My husband would love this book too.
