Professional reviews

"The search for the mythical land of milk and honey in post-Civil War America sweeps from the North to the South to the Wild West. Narrators Tom Stechschulte, Alyssa Bresnahan, and Carine Montbertrand weave a tumultuous tale between the time of Lee's surrender at Appomattox in 1865 and the massacre of federal troops by Sioux warriors at the Little Big Horn in 1876. Much of the story is lovingly told by a Santee woman named She Goes Before, who finds love with an ex-slave. Listeners may feel dust in their nostrils as the Indians attack Custer's soldiers, and few hearts are so cold that won't be warmed by the story's ending, wonderfully portrayed by Stechschulte. R.O.
