    " This story was hard to stay with at times, but worth the effort. It's a testimonial to the strength, stupidity, and down right quirkiness of American pioneers. "

    " Boy was I disappointed with this book. I was in love with Dillard after reading American Childhood but this one could be subtitled: Every freak death that happened on the American Frontier. Hated it. "
