Review by Library Journal (2007-10-01)

McLain's book is chock-full of trivia and factoids on a plethora of subjects, including animals, crime, food, disasters, inventions, entertainment, science, and sports. It's like Google in a book. Great fun to browse. Neeley provides a hard-core portrait of -Quanah Parker, the last Commanche chief to follow the traditional nomadic life, who fought the encroaching settlers initially with bloody attacks and later with diplomacy. Two more solid bargain titles from Castle.
