Reviews

Gripping and authoritative, this is a masterwork of scholarship and literary grace. Faragher's dark portrait of L.A. pulls no punches and asks us to consider what grim DNA yet lurks in the City of Angels.--William Deverell, University of Southern California, author of To Bind Up the Nation's Wounds
Through chilling anecdote and skilled storytelling, John Mack Faragher explores the experience of frontier violence for L.A.'s Mexican, Anglo, Indian, Black, and Chinese residents. This may just be the true origin story for L.A. noir.--Amy Greenberg, Penn State University, author of A Wicked War
Eternity Street will be an enduring landmark. Faragher's stories are not happy ones, but they are ones we need to remember if we hope to embrace the West's full history and cope with the legacy that continues to bedevil us.--Elliott West, University of Arkansas, author of The Last Indian War
