From the Inside Flap:

"An absolutely first-rate account of the rambunctious life and times of the Reconstruction years in enthralling era of derring-do which finds its perfect chronicler in Mr. Shrake. His novel has all the vigor and excitement of a war Apache in full cry." - George Plimpton "Shrake writes in a hard-driving, ironic style of extreme naturalism, giving a very different view of McGill’s ‘sainthood’ and providing a colorful description of the old West." - Publishers Weekly "The high adventure in Mr. Shrake’s book is interwoven with fascinating material about the lives and customs of the Indians." - New York Review of Books
