"The book that brought the book club back!"
"A novel planned on the grandest possible scale...One of those
occasions when a writer has aimed high and then summoned every
ounce of energy, talent, seriousness, and passion of which he was
capable...It is an entirely interesting and impressive book."
The New York Herald Tribune
"A fantasia and myth...a strange and original work of art."
The New York Times Book Review
"A moving, crying pageant with wilderness strengths."
