“Whatever else the reader of this novel may say, he certainly will be forced to admit that it is highly interesting. Mr. Raine is not only skillful in devising incidents which compel unwearied attention; he also has the rarer and finer craftsmanship which enables him to create characters that have a high degree of personal charm.”—Boston Transcript.
“A story engrossing all the way through.”—New York World.
“It is a real pleasure to pick up a book like this one. To use an old phrase, the story is one which can hardly be put down.”
“The action starts with the first line, and there is no suspension until the last word is written. It is a story of thrilling situations, busy people and stirring times. Once started to read it there is no quitting the book.”—Denver Republican.
“Full of action and written with remarkable vigor.”
—Charleston News and Courier.
“Mr. Raine’s experience as a newspaper man has stood him in good stead. He knows the corrupt workings of politicians, the venality of biased courts, the weakness of the human heart when tempted by gold. More, he knows the details by which all these are made manifest in unjust laws, unfair verdicts and treachery to one’s best friends.”
“The political contest, the love scenes, and the character drawing give this story of life in the mining country great strength and charm.”—Pittsburg Dispatch.
“Western stories are always in demand, and of these William MacLeod Raine is the most popular and successful writer. This is an exceptionally entertaining book.”—Albany Times-Union.
