KIRKUS REVIEW

The author's intention has been to ""capture the feeling of the Northwest country"" through each of these adventurous tales. Beginning with the ill-fated voyage of John Jacob Astor's ship Tonquin to the mouth of the Columbia in 1810, he ranges on through the frontier days, the Indian wars, the age of the cattle kings, outlaws, and vigilantes, and then on up through ""The Twentieth Century's Indomitable Breed"" with that great desperado Harry Tracy, and the last of the gory train robberies. Mr. Lucia's enthusiasm for his adoptive home region is highly infectious, and he has a swift, uncluttered style which should carry all but the most lethargic readers straight through to the end.
