MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Old West's last glimmers flicker through this piercingly beautiful adventure, an unforgettable saga in which Preston, astride his horse Popeye, traverses the desert and mountain wilderness of Arizona and New Mexico, retracing the trailblazing 1540-1541 expedition of Spanish explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. . . . In place of the mythical winning of the West, Preston unfolds a harrowing tale of loss."
A vivid, often witty, account of riding through some of the most difficult terrain in the Southwest, and of some of the people, including Indians, who still live there. . . . the entire book is sheer pleasure to read.
