Very plodding. A bit of a bore. Not up to his usual excellent story telling. His cowboy stories were best.

Louis L'amour: Last of the breed, c -1986
This story rocks! A native american, Fighter/Test pilot, crashes in Communist lands. He is hunted down while working out his escape back to the U.S. After his capture, he escapes and goes back to the old ways of his people.
Thus turning the fight around and the communist military gets a lesson in life.
The action ends with the story ending.

Loved it! L'Amour is such a fabulous story teller! The story is of an American pilot escaping captivity in cold war Russia. He decides to walk to the east coast & cross the Bering Strait. How he survives the brutal Siberian winter without capture makes the book impossible to put down.
