    "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."

    "Guns of the Timberlands is yet another one of Louis Lamour's captivating books. In Lamour's books, often set in the west, the good guy always wins and he always rides away into the sunset with the girl. A nice light read by a good author."

    "The Walking Drum by Louis L’Amour has a familiar feel to it for fans of the author but with a slight twist. This book goes farther back in time to tell the story of a journey throughout Europe and Asia as the main character fights battle after battle. "
