Last of the Breed Author:Louis L'Amour In this thriller, a Native American Air Force pilot must rely on his wits and survival skills after escaping from a Russian prison as he begins a long, lonely trek across the Bering Strait to freedom in the U.S.
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.
Loved this book written by L'Amour but is not a western. It is written about a modern day Air Force Pilot but still has the fast moving adventure and thought that goes into all L'Amour books. You can not only follow through the pages of the book but also on a map and find every place Joe Mack travels. Very Very Good
L'Amour transfers his tough-frontiersman to 1950s Siberia as he traces the long walk of an American test plane pilot snatched by Soviet baddies and sent to a Siberian prison camp, from which he promptly escapes and begins a long trek across some of the most hostile geography in the world.
