Read full description of the books:
Two parts Rambo, one part Firefox – all Louis L’Amour.
First published in 1986, this is one of L’Amour’s later books (he died in 1988) and tells the story of Major Joe Mack, who was shot down over the Soviet Union and was held briefly and interrogated but then escaped into the Siberian wilderness and kept going!
Simply told, with few frills but from a talented storytelling, veteran writer, this was fun to read.
L’Amour spins a very empathetic story about a US Air Force pilot shot down over Siberia, but who is a Sioux and was raised to his heritage and learns to survive and even thrive while the Soviets try to catch his trail. L’Amour sets up a book length showdown between Mack and his Soviet counterpart Yakut native Alekhin who also lives as their ancestors did.
Like most of L'Amour's books, this is also a vehicle for him to explore themes of naturalism, fortitude, and personal courage. Readers will also notice in L'Amour's depiction of Mack a ubiquitous and thematic respect for the Native American.
