"In addition to his accomplishments as a talented novelist, a thorough historian, and an excellent essayist, Frank Waters is that rare breed of man who has merged heart and mind early in his life and moved forward to confront ultimate questions. This dilemma of faith and heritage, religion and identity, and commitment and comfort has never been resolved intellectually. Even with profound faith and rigorous discipline of self, mystics have found it difficult to resolve through action and prayer. ... I look at the life and writing of Frank Waters ... and find ... a remarkable journey of inquiry spanning nearly a century and illuminating questions which I did not think possible to formulate."

-Vine Deloria, Jr., editor

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This tribute to a giant of southwestern letters has the likes of Max Evans, Rudolfo A. Anaya, Alvin M. Josephy, Jr., and others remembering Waters and his work. A perceptive essay by his wife, Barbara, and transcriptions of several interviews and round table discussions make this a resonant treasure for Waters admirers."

-- Books of the Southwest
"Twenty-one distinguished contemporaries of Frank Waters have contributed short tributes to this widely admired historian, novelist and essayist. They all make good reading."

-- New Mexico Magazine
