"This editiion is excellent and should be in any and all collections."—Los Angeles Corral

"Byrkit's introduction is as important and revealing as the letters themselves. . . . Lummis' 3000 mile trek brought the Southwest to the people through the eyes of this curious and courageous young newspaper man. . . . totally captivating."—Red Rock News
