KIRKUS REVIEW

This story of animal and human intelligence creating trail patterns on the face of the West blends wonder with resourcefulness. Indian trails, missionary trails, wagon and Pony Express trails form the bulk of Mr. Moody's concern, along with the effects of the Gold Rush. Most of these trails vanished shortly after the Union Pacific drove in its golden spike connecting the two coasts. Mr. Moody has an ability to present facts straightforwardly while allowing the reader to slip off into irresistible reflections of his own.
