"A courageous and unrelenting posse on the trail of a furious and desperate wilderness outlaw more animal and more ghost than man. Lean and bloody, meticulously researched, The Mad Trapper of Rat River is a dark and haunting story of human endurance, adventure, and will that speeds along like the best fiction."-- Bob Butz
