I had never read L' Amour books, but this one was recommended by a fellow Tracker- and for good reason! It's a wonderful story about a Native American pilot who is captured by Russians. He escapes prison and disappears into the Siberian wilderness. Not only is a great adventure story, but there is outstanding survival, tracking, escape and evasion and other relevant skills used throughout the story. It also has some great philosophy of living with the Earth. So not only fun entertainment, but a chance to pit your experience against this author's efforts in playing "the game".
