Praise

“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
