"A general account of border warfare in which Quantrill was so prominent, probably the best study on the subject" [Nevins]. Oddly, Nevins also has a less enthusiastic entry about the book: "Strongly hostile to everything about Quantrill, the author has put together a badly organized but pungent story of the guerrillas."
