"To be read for enjoyment; nevertheless, the historian will find in it a wealth of information that has been shrewdly appraised, carefully sifted, and creditably related."-Catholic Historical Review

"Of interest not only to the historian but to the geographer and anthropologist."-Pacific Historical Review
