L'AMOUR IS IN TOP FORM."

LAST OF
THE BREED


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.

LOUIS L'AMOUR
With over 180 million copies of his books in print worldwide, Louis L'Amour is America's favorite storyteller.  His phenomenal bestsellers include Jubal Sackett and The Haunted Mesa.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
