In a nutshell.... Outstanding! This is a great continuation of The first book in the series.
I particularly found the section about the reasons behind the Civil War and slavery to be well researched and well written. Most people are in error to think the baseline reason for the war was the Slavery issue. It was not, as you have so well put it. Typical Politicians then and now. You have to watch the other hand to see the real trick. Great read!

I first read this book in its print version, but it has been greatly rewritten and improved. Mr. Dicksion has the knowledge, a result of having grown up in his characters' milieu, to make you see and feel the rich barrenness of the places.
The great sensitivity with which he presents the inner life of the young Brave, is characteristic of his story telling skill.
I think there is much in the story about how the author matured as a young man
imbued in his character's growth to manhood.
The life of the Southwest United States has been told by only a few novelists.
Bill Dicksion may be one of the last and best at the task.
