Reviews

Praise for the Legends of the Lost Causes series:

"This is a fun and exciting story, written with the utmost respect for the Osage culture." --Wah-Zah-Zhi Cultural Center

"[A] rollicking adventure filled with mystery and magic that crackles like a brush fire." --Emma Trevayne, author of The House of Months and Years

"Thrilling, dark, and full of heart, this is a Western like none I've ever read. I loved it." --Stefan Bachmann, author of The Peculiar and The Whatnot

"The Old West lingo-laden dialogue is pitch-perfect--not to mention contagious. It's rare to see a Western in middle grade fiction--especially one that, like this one, eliminates some of the genre's more harmful stereotypes of Native populations . . . [this] will surely gain more than a few young fans." --School Library Journal

"Vividly drawn characters, evocative writing, thrilling suspense." --The Buffalo News
