Reviews

A parade of colourful personalities and richly detailed scenes which entertain and, cumulatively, expose the violence of cultural imperialism.
Vivid... a constant delight. Mr. Pagnamenta tells this story with verve and style. His love of tales of derring-do on the prairie matches his subjects.--Judith Flanders
[A] lost--and deeply weird--world...has been lovingly excavated and brought back to life.--Miranda Seymour
Entertaining.... A deeply researched and finely delivered look at what can best be described as a counterintuitive slice of American history.--Scott Martelle
