"A riveting tale of brutal warfare amidst a deep and compelling spiritual journey. Anyone who fought in Vietnam will recognize this as the real thing; anyone who didn't fight there should read this to see how it was."--Col Walter J. Boyne (USAF, ret.), New York Times bestselling author of Operation Iraqi Freedom on The Quick and the Dead
"The Quick and the Dead gives the reader the real Vietnam War. This story is grim, uncompromising, and at times cruel, but with a real sense of humanity."---Barbara D'Amato, Edgar Award-Winning of Death of a Thousand Cuts on The Quick and the Dead
"This is one of the most powerful novels written about the men who went away to fight America's most hated war and who could not return home again . . . it brings the war into your mind and heart and allows you to sense the despair, the danger, the betrayals, the senseless horrors. You'll understand . . . what happened to these men and what they gave up for their country. Each narrative passage is written with the passion and credibility that only one who has been there and finally found his way home again, can feel."--The Tulsa World on Return to Ithaca
"Both the landscape and the emotional atmosphere of Vietnam are powerfully portrayed."
