He had my rifle, my knife. The muzzle of the rifle was at my throat. He looked at me for a long time and then he said, ‘You are young to die. Lie there while you count to one hundred.

The soldier placed the flat, skin-wrapped package on the table before Colonel Zamatev and stepped back, standing rigidly at attention. Before diverting his attention to the package, Zamatev studied the soldier. Hunger, cold, and the exhaustion of long trails had sapped the man’s strength and drained him of feeling. He had my rifle, my knife.

One of the few "non-Western" novels from Louis L'Amour, but well worth the read. Set in Cold War Soviet Union (so may not be so relatable to our millennials and youth), this story is all out L'Amour. His descriptions of the outdoor expanse of Siberia and the people who live are tremendous. His protagonist is the man we (L'Amour fans) all wish we could be...you're with him every step of the way.

Maybe a bit meandering in small measure and a touch lengthy in the subplots; the introductory tie-in and thought provoking ending make it all worth while.

This book was mostly written in the first person telling it, but at times it went to a few others in order to tell the story. I consider this a great read. It is a novel so long but was hard to stop reading. It was so good. It takes place in Russia. The main charter is an American Indian with the US Air Force. He has been forced down and held by the Russians. This was before the cold war ended. He has escaped and it is about his journey, struggles, fight, and people he meets along the way. All the time he is being hunted by the Russians. This book would make any American proud, especially the American Indian.

My grandfather was a master bombardier/navigator for the Air Force. During the Cold War, his mission was to be ready to drop nuclear ordinance on targets in the eastern USSR. The bombers did not have range for a round trip, so the orders were to ditch the plane and escape on foot through China.

In this book, we follow an air force pilot on just such a trek. It's a long journey, and it is a tale about the journey. It is an adventure story with a conclusion I found unsatisfying, but I'm glad to have followed Joe Mack on his travels. If you want to travel far from civilization to distant lands, to witness a more primitive way of living, this is a good read.

This is one of several Louis L'Amour books that are set outside the conventional Western setting, and each of those are among his best works for some reason. This one in particular is truly awesome. It is set in the late Cold War era, and follows a USAF test pilot that gets covertly snatched by Soviet intelligence. He quickly escapes, setting up an epic chase across Siberia, because what the Soviets did not realize fully was that due to his American Indian heritage, Major Joe Mack is an unusually capable outdoors-man and warrior. This is absolutely L'Amour at his finest, and I truly regret that he did not live to write a sequel to this, as it ends on something of cliff hangar. When I am pointing a new person to L'Amour, this is always one of the first books I mention.

This Louis L'Amour book ranks right up there with his How the West was Won. Difference is how L'Amour used history for the West was Won and current events for the exciting action-adventure page-turning novel of Last of the Breed. An Air Force Major who is also Sioux Indian is shot down by the dreaded Soviets during the Cold War, captured, tortured, and then escapes to make his way across Siberia to eastern Russia, fighting the Soviet Army during a couple of Siberian winters using bow & arrows and Sioux wilderness lore and knowledge to avoid capture. Loved it; could not put it down; have finished it; and, still it resonates within that unknown area of the brain where great books go to be relived.

I agree with many of the commentators that this book was too repetitious and that it has an abrupt ending. With ~400 pages with which to work, L'Amour could have told the entire story--including Mack coming back to "finish the job" he started. As it stands, I wish Louis could have lived long enough to have written the follow-up to this one--as a few very important questions remain answered. I have grown to really enjoy L'Amour's writing and have read about 40 of his books. I guess that I have a soft spot for "good guy wins in the end and gets the girl" stories.

This is only the second book I have ever read by Louis L'Amour, and now I wonder why. He is really a very enjoyable author to read. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I only have two criticisms. First, there were a lot of characters with Russian names that I had a hard time keeping up with. I had to frequently go back in the book to remember exactly who they were. This was probably just my lack of concentration. Second, I was not satisfied with the ending. It is what it is, but I wish that L'Amour had spent just a little more time and developed the ending a little. All I all, however, I definitely recommend this book.
Major Joseph Makatozi "Joe Mack" is a U.S. Air Force flier shot down and captured by the Russians, who want aircraft information from him. But the Russians don't realize that Joe Mack is one tough hombre.

He is a decathlon star, skilled in martial arts, an expert marksman - and he is a man who grew up in wild country in the U.S. and is used to living with and off the land.

Joe Mack escapes from a Siberian prison and the rest of the story is about his escape cross country through the hardest of weather conditions, trying to get to the Bering Strait and from there to Alaska.

There is some repetition in this book and it drags in some areas but it doesn't matter. This is a Louis L'Amour masterpiece and Joe Mack is one awesome hero.

Thrills, chills (of more than one kind), romance - all without foul language, sex scenes, and over-the-top violence. There is SOME violence in the story but it is necessary to the story and not gratuitous.

This is the second time I've read "Last of the Breed" and I rarely reread books. But this book is part of my permanent library and I will probably read it again one of these days.
