The Way To Bright Star

Review:

"This tale of America's Gilded Age is told with a vigor and irony that do full justice to its excesses, energies, venalities, and dreams."--"Newsweek" on "Hear That Lonesome Whistle Blow
""It is obvious from the outset that Brown knows the Civil War period as well as he knows the Indian War and the taming of the West...A consummate storyteller. The rivers flow, the winds blow, the nights are full of secrets, and the days pulse with real life."--"The Washington Post" on "Conspiracy of Knaves
""With unerring eye and unflinching irony, Mr. Brown shows how history, myth, and business work hand in hand...As loaded with nuggets as the streambed at Sutter's Mill."--"The New York Times "on "The American West
""Brown is a master of the plain style, modulating it skillfully to fit whatever engages his sense of wonder."--"The Orlando Sentinel
""There is serendipity involved in Dee Brown's story, all right, but it is ours, not his. A Boston banker reads "Creek Mary's Blood" and changes his mind about fiction. A bored young student picks up "The Westerners" because of the title and changes his mind about reading. An entire nation reads "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" and changes its mind about history."--"Arkansas Democrat Gazette"
