Stirringly beautiful at times -- primitively vigorous at others, this long narrative poem of the days of California's gold madness should win new laurels for this young Californian whose Sonnets, privately printed, won acclaim on the Coast. It is not exaggerating to prophesy favorable comparison with John Brown's Body in the press reactions to this exceptionally fine work. (To date, 1935, my choice for the Pulitzer Award! Not that that means anything, but --) should have an extensive sale on the Coast, and build up a reasonably good sale elsewhere. Limited edition at $5.00 to be published simultaneously with the trade edition, so place your orders now if you expect to secure any before it is sold out.
