Like Mark Twain, Berger has a pitch-perfect ear for how Americans talk—and think. And like Mark Twain he can ruthlessly indict human stupidity and bigotry while never losing his temper, and being really, really funny. (Source)

This is a fantastic, crazy, often violent novel that gives a unique voice to life in the Wild West. You'll not soon forget Jack Crabb.

While I found this to be an interesting portrayal of the settling of the west and expansion of the American Dream (colonization of the native Americans), at times it seemed drawn out. The major insight concerns the plains Indian consciousness as opposed to Caucasian pragmatism.
