"One of the year’s best works of fiction."
Chicago Tribune

"Moving… Absorbing… Magnificently imagined."
The Boston Globe

"Brilliant… A masterpiece… Charging Elk [is] one of the most resonant characters of our current literature."
Star Tribune

"Ambitious, moving and altogether nourishing… Welch’s novel moves with sensual grace… A novel with an expansiveness of heart and mind, an intimate analogue of Indian estrangement worthy of any readerly voyage."
Chicago Sun-Times

"Powerful… An engaging, pointed, heartfelt examination of culture clash and the debilitating effects of otherness."
San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle

"Vivid [and] evocative… A story of survival… It’s a familiar story, but Welch takes the conceit one step further, creating a Wild West show of his own."
Los Angeles Times Book Review
