Praise for Unpunished Murder:

This book shines a light on a shameful sea change moment in U.S. history... Difficult and necessary. -- Kirkus Reviews

This is a unique look at not only the massacre in question, but also at the history and workings of the Supreme Court of the United States... This work shows a more complete history of the Reconstruction era and the way the highest levels of government were affected by a country trying to heal and make amends. -- School Library Connection

This look at the early days of the industry highlights the thrill and awe of a watching public as well as the fact that the sky was no longer any sort of boundary. -- Booklist

Armchair thrillseekers will settle in and read this one straight through. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
