Description:

Fifteen Montana cowboys sail into Vladivostok with a herd of five hundred longhorns, ready to
cross a thousand miles of Siberian wilderness. When a band of Cossacks, Russia’s elite
horsemen and warriors, shows up to escort these rough and ready Americans to their destination,
the clash of cultures begins. The feud between American six shooter and Russian saber is
embodied in two men: Shad, the leader of the Montana cowboys, and Rostov, the Cossack
commander. Nature and man are enemies that will force them to work together—and a ruthless
Tartar army that stands between them and their destination. The code of the cowboy West and the
credo of the Cossack East seem to be two different measures of a man—but honor and courage
are the same in any language when a common enemy must be faced. Lonesome Dove meets Dr.
Zhivago in this rousing tale of West meets East in the days of the Russian Tsars and the Wild
West.

Rated it: it was amazing
Frankly, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this read. This was my first foray into the western
genre and while it encompassed many of the traits one would expect from the genre such as
cowboys and the herd, it was truly unusual and a bit over the top. I would recommend this book to
any person, man or woman, who wants a really fantastic story with compelling, well thought out
characters. I couldn't help but feel a bit sad when it all came to an end. Also worth noting are the
fantastic illustr
