From the Back Cover:

The Tales of Alvin Maker III

"The most important work of American fantasy since Stephen Donaldson's original Thomas covenant trilogy."―Chicago Sun-Times

Praise for The Tales of Alvin Maker

"A tribute to the art of storytelling. . . highly recommended."―Library Journal

"Card has uncovered a rich vein of folklore and magic here, to which his assured handling of old time religion and manifest love of children is admirably suited: an appealing and intriguing effort."―Kirkus Reviews

"A beguiling book. . . robust but reflective blend of folktale, history, parable and personal testimony, pioneer narrative. The series promises to be a ‘story of deep delight.'"―Publishers Weekly

"Card is one of the most important writers in the field."―Ben Bova

"[Card's] versatility of style, subject, and approach makes him unique in the SF field!"―Anne McCaffrey

"With the third installment in his tales of Alvin Maker series, Card's alternative frontier America epic continues to be a significant event in fantasy publishing."―Booklist

"The best fantasy series now in progress."―Publishers Weekly

If you read only one fantasy this year, this is the one.
