“Another book that neatly sidesteps the easily recognizable clichés of a traditional Western, Prescott’s tale of gold-seekers venturing into the harsh Black Hills of the Southwest (not to be confused with those of Dakota fame) explores a variety of characters in-depth. It’s gritty, tough and satisfying.” True West Magazine
