One of the best books I have ever read. They do not write them like this any more. ( )

His saga books have no equal, unless you include Rutherford. ( )

It can be challenging to finish a Michener book because they are so long but if you like learning about history then you will be glad you persevered. In fact, there is sorrow at having to say goodbye to characters you've been reading about for over 900 pages. ( )

Voor drie voortreffelijke journalisten in Colorado
Floyd Merril van Greeley, die me de rivieren heeft laten zien;
Otto Unfug van Sterling, die me veel over het vee heeft geleerd; Clyde Stanley van Keota, die me naar de prairie heeft geleid.
Dedication
To Three distinguished Colorado newspapermen:
Floyd Merrill of Greeley, who showed me the rivers;
Otto Unfug of Sterling, who taught me about cattle;
Clyde Staley of Keota, who introduced me to the prairie.
First words
Only another writer, someone who had worked his heart out on a good book which sold three thousand copies, could appreciate the thrill that overcame me one April morning in 1973 when Dean Rivers of our small college in Georgia appeared at my classroom door.
