"In warm tones, George Guidall dramatizes this involving epic of Louisianian Remy Fuqua and the birth of the Independent Republic of Texas. The entire breadth of Western culture is presented, providing listeners with a deeper understanding of relations between Whites, Native Americans, and Mexicans. With his customary professionalism, Guidall uses dramatic pauses, inflections, and precise accents to uniquely characterize Chief Kills White Bear, Beatrice Fuqua, and her father, Don Carlos. Guidall's stylish narration enhances Wilkinson's rich adventure story, with its strong emotions, colorful language, and historica. Listeners will enjoy the rowdy and, at times, bloody life of the pioneer. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
