"The language is good and sturdy and dotted with imaginative metaphors and similes (Silence, so deep, that it roared in its vast vacuum). If the book tries to crowd too much life into 300 pages, well, there was a lot of life: We old pioneers, Abbie says at the end, we dreamed dreams into the country."Milwaukee Journal
