Last of the Breed (Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures): A Novel (Mass Market)
"The hugely prolific Louis L'Amour is widely known for his stories of the American West. In his novel, Last of the Breed, L'Amour takes his classic themes -- mortality, bravery, honor, survival -- to the other side of the world.
Air Force Major Joe Mack crash lands an experimental aircraft in the heart of Soviet Union. Captured by the Soviets, the highly-capable Mack quickly escapes. Though he is alone in a vast, foreign wilderness, a lifetime of survival training has prepared him for almost everything.
Except for the man sent to track him.
What follows is a brilliant cat-and-mouse game that pits American ingenuity against an implacable enemy that seems to know his every move. Mack's efforts to escape make for a great escapist thriller. One of L'Amour's most memorable tales."

“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.
