Editorial Reviews

Western American Literature
"[Rough Rider] offers insight into an age too often distorted by popular myths and makes an excellent case for O’Neill as an unjustly neglected American personality. . . . The lessons of Buckey O’Neill’s life and death ought not to go unpondered."—Western American Literature
Southwest Chronicle
"Life in frontier Arizona is well depicted in [this] biography. . . . [It is] a story of Irish daring."—Southwest Chronicle
El Paso Times
"The tale is beautifully told. It teems with bizarre and sometimes hairy episodes while at the same time achieving strength through understatement, wry humor, and an artless effort to avoid making the hero larger than life."—El Paso Times
