KIRKUS REVIEW

A recurring theme in children's literature, this story is usually fraught with violence, and sabotage. The young adult audience will find Mr. Griswold's account focusing on the economic and political character of this event. There are still Indians in the cast but men like Dodge, Crocker, Huntington and Durant are given the leading roles. Recommended for popular consumption, this is a straightforward, factual rendering.
