Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wild Ride I personally enjoyed this novel - it was raw and unforgiving. From start to finish, I felt as if I was living along side the McCullough family 165 years ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Son Too long and difficult to correlate, but well written. Ultimately too sad a view of Texas and its robber barons for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic I feel like the McCulloughs are my family I know them so well. Totally worth the 570 page commitment. Will be an award winner and perennial favourite without a doubt.
