All they had to do was travel up the coast to San Francisco and later, Sacramento. The wagon crossing in ’49 was a great read, and the looks at the various Indian tribes Flash encountered left me thirsty for more knowledge of the tribes as they were before things reached their fever-pitch of tragedy in the back end of the 19th century.


The novel’s second half featured some interesting aspects in the story. Fraser wrote this particular saga in two parts.

Flashy’s opinions of historical figures have to be read. Laugh out loud brilliance. The West as it really was: Berger and Fraser both get a lot of mileage from dramatic irony, but, I think, because Harry Flashman is so irredeemably awful, Fraser is able to comment even more pointedly and drily than Berger on the dreadful human consequences of Manifest Destiny without coming off as righteous or heavy-handed.
