Reviews
"The historical novel at its best...With it, Harrigan [has] emerged as the leading Texan writer of his generation and an American writer of the first rank." --San Francisco Chronicle

"The first great novel of the 21st century....This is storytelling at its finest." --Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"A time and a place, a vanished world in which gallant death and honor still held tangible appeal, while merciless slaughter was more likely the rule, are evoked with great skill." --The New York Times Book Review

"A picturesque historical saga comparable to Lonesome Dove and The Killer Angels...a new masterpiece in the literature of fact." --Christian Science Monitor
