Reviews

"John Graves's writing is invaluable. . . . The reader who misses Graves will have missed much." --Larry McMurtry

"As you read, you have the feeling that the whole colorful, brutal tapestry of the Lone Star State is being unrolled for you out of the biography of this one stream." --The Atlantic Monthly

"Graves' originality and flair turn this local scene and regional lore into an hoest and powerfully evocative picture of frontier life anywhere." --The Chicago Sunday Tribune

"One of the most pleasing books I've ever read. I love the way it weaves together remote history, not so remote history, present events, and landscape."--Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs
