Reviews
"No book since John Barth's The Sot-Weed Factor has so thoroughly transported readers back in time to our nation's origins. Prepare yourself to confront the political and moral compromises that got us where we are today. You won't find a better guide."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Argall may bring us closer to the truth of America's first interracial romance than a thousand biographies written on the subject." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Readers are likely to come away from this story...appreciating the mordant resonance with writers from Defoe to Conrad." --The Washington Post
