Reviewer: Clay Reynolds, (Dallas Morning News)

"Olmstead offers a...'thinking-reader's' western....Mystical overtones reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy at his best enlighten the prose, which is tautly written and laced with tension....Verbal precision and historical accuracy combine with a poetic distillation of a tragic event presented in solidly captivating reading experience that haunts the mind long after the final page is turned."

"Olmstead is wondrously attuned to the natural world and the realities of war; he uses sand, heat, and distant mountains as a stage set, and his narrative unfolds with all the formal rigor of a Greek tragedy....Brutal, tender, and magnificent." (starred review)

"Olmstead's brilliantly expressive, condensed tale of resilience and dusty determination flows with the kind of literary cadence few writers have mastered." (starred review)
