  • The work of a great storyteller

    Washington Post
  • 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

    New York Herald Tribune
  • When the book club ended a year ago, I said I would bring it back when I found the book that was moving...and this is a great one. I read it for myself for the first time and then I had some friends read it. And we think it might be the best novel we've ever read!

    Oprah Winfrey
  • A strange and original work of art

    New York Times Book Review
  • A moving, crying pageant with wilderness strengths

    Carl Sandburg
