"... warrants a place on any shelf of Western Americana."

--San Francisco Chronicle

"... [Johnson] emerges as flesh and blood, with the emphasis on blood. His story is the material from which grand opera might be made."

--Saturday Review

"It's a robust story, almost incredible--a saga of hardship, cruelty and terrible dangers through which John Johnson, tough and shrewd as he undoubtedly was, did not emerge unscathed. This is the stuff of folklore at its authentic best."

--New York Times Book Review

"Spectacular to repellent, this is a part of Western life as it must have been..."

--Kirkus Reviews
