"The cast of characters is fascinating, each one helping to move the tale forward...well-written with historically accurate information regarding California's early settlement, the Gold Rush, and the Bear Rebellion that led to adding the California territory to the United States...difficult to put down; Addiego is a talented writer who has composed an exceptional story that will linger in my thoughts for some time. I look forward to reading his next book."
--Historical Novels Review "Addiego wields perfect control of the story, using simple and elegant descriptive prose and charming sentence bridges to flow between one chapter and the next."
--Sacramento Book Review "Addiego shows skill in developing varied yet realistic voices for his characters. As you would imagine in the newly settled west in the mid 19th century, there are people from a variety of environments and socio-economic backgrounds. The author presents these differences well and the narrative is the better for it...There is much to like about Tears of the Mountain and some great technical skill displayed in its execution...a satisfying read on many levels...There is something for most readers in this novel. It is a job well done."--New York Journal of Books
