KIRKUS REVIEW

The fifth and last (third chronologically) poetry narrative in Neihardt's Cycle of The West, celebrating the Ashley-Henry expeditions, the pioneering treks from St. Louis to the Coast. Jed Smith, a man of great piety and courage, a legend even in his own time, is herewith commemorated in verse, indigenous, virile. A robust narrative.
