Mantracker based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Mike Ray must have gotten his storytelling ability from his Native American heritage. Based on a true story, he nevertheless told it in a fun and easy way to read for someone like myself who lived in the Vietnam era. I like books and movies that give me more insight into what it was really like in Southeast Asia during that time. Mantracker was not only a good history lesson about what was going on in the areas around Vietnam, but also an interesting story about a child who learned to track from his Native American grandfather and as his life evolved, he ended up using his skills in a very vital way in an undeclared war in Laos. I look forward to 'the rest of the story.'
Based on a true story, Mike, a half Indian boy taken from his mother and raised by his grandfather on an Indian resevation who taught him tracking skills. Later, as a young man, Mike gets into a situation that takes him to Laos during the time of the Vietnam War where it was nessesary to summon up every survival skill he had learned, and more, as he earned his code name Mantracker. While he was in Laos he found true love, got into some life threatening situations and experienced tragedy. This was quite an adventure.
