KIRKUS REVIEW

Highly seasoned (and salted) lowbrow Americana, which makes good reading. From the lips of an old timer come these robust, rip-roaring yarns of California's Mother Lode, during the years of the gold fever- times of ""great depravitation and plenty of whisky"". Bedrock bull about sharks and gamblers, honest miners and innocents, Indians and Irish, easy spenders, practical jokers, women- rare and fancy. In the vernacular, these tall tales have verve and flavor and a good deal of raw humor.
