Editorial Reviews

Statesman Journal Newspaper - Dan Hays

"Gulick has chosen to tell the story in an entirely linear manner. . . . The result is a gripping, exciting and frightening story of a desperate killer and men so determined to bring him down that they became as dangerous as their target. More than a thousand men pursued Tracy through Oregon and Washington. Virtually all of them were armed, including some of the newspaper reporters."—Dan Hays, Statesman Journal Newspaper

    This book is outstanding!!!!!

    I bought the book because "Walter Lyon" talked about in the book is my grandmother's 1/2 brother.
    I had hunting for records of him for 15 years. Mr. Gulick did a wonderful job describing the people taking part in the manhunt and the areas where the hunt took place.
    This is the kind of book in a year or 2 a person would read it again.
    If you like true history stories this is a winner.
