Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An epic such as Mark Twain might have given us.” Henry Miller, New York Times bestselling author
“Spellbinding…[Crabb] surely must be one of the most delightfully absurd fictional fossils ever unearthed.” Time
“Superb…Berger’s success in capturing the points of view and emotional atmosphere of a vanished era is uncanny. His skill in characterization, his narrative power and his somewhat cynical humor are all outstanding.” New York Times
“The very best novel ever about the American West.” New York Times Book Review
“This audio achievement begins with narrator David Aaron Baker portraying writer Ralph Fielding Snell, who is about to interview a man who claims he participated in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Scott Sowers then narrates the bulk of the story as 111-year-old Jack Crabb. Sowers’ even pace and gritty voice makes the old-timer’s amazing, slang-filled story vibrantly clear. Sowers perfectly captures Crabb’s mercurial disposition and compellingly recounts his many adventures—as a Cheyenne warrior, white man, drunk, merchant, gambler, miner, mule driver, gunslinger, soldier, and more. Henry Strozier reads the essay by Larry McMurtry at the end in a deep, comfortable voice that offers listeners a chance to reflect on the significance of this American classic. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
