KIRKUS REVIEW

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.
