From Library Journal:

The Civil War has been viewed from almost every possible perspective, but Adams breaks new ground: a first-person narrative, in dialect, by Robert E. Lee's horse. Traveller's equine memoirs are told to a cat in the stable of the retired general. There is a twist to this central event in American history: Traveller is unaware that Lee lost. Although Adams's five previous novels were well received, the mythic clarity and enchantment of Watership Down or Shardik are missing here. Still, interest in the previous novels should create demand. BOMC alternate. Edwin B. Burgess, U.S. Army TRALINET Ctr., Fort Monroe, Va.

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of Watership Down devises an ironic, revisionist view of the Civil War as seen by Robert E. Lee's horse, Traveller. "Fans of Adams's earlier novels will rejoice in his undiminished gift for conveying both the physical life and the interior essence of an animal . . . . But the author's depiction of human action is less convincing, with repetitious, meandering delineations of encampments, advances and attacks," said PW.
