    " Wide-ranging historical novel. Characters include former slave-holders, former slaves, Virginia history as well as the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and even some railroad building. Very entertaining. "

    " This was an audio book for me. it was 14 hours long. Very detailed and delves into the post Civil War time with a diverse groups of characters, ex-slaves, former slave owners, Nativer Americans, etc. "

    " Really very good. I love books set in this time period. It's hard to imagine going through what our country did. "

    " His writing is crisp and clear, the story-telling superb. I particularly admire the way McCaig portrays the duplicity of white preachers and prospectors toward the Lakota in just a few opening pages. The journalist in me really appreciates his honesty. "
