    " 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. "
