Review:

''A triumph.'' --New Yorker

''In place of a single point of view and a restriction of time, place, number of scenes and characters, Mr. Harrison delivers, in eighty-seven pages, a complete two-generation family saga . . . The steady, singing, epic voice assures and reassures us that we are hearing -- as the title claims -- legend, not reality. In compression, unexpectedly, lies credibility.'' --New York Times
