Review Text

While this does not have the practiced fluency of Haycox there is a similar realism in the handling of a wagon train making its way down the Santa Fe trace. The hero is an unwashed mountain man, the heroine is a half breed, the mule skinners' talk is unexpurgated and unasterisked and the hardships of the trail are completely unvarnished. The whole dynamites itself out of the standardized field and formula. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
