In between, readers will find absorbing entertainment. The story rapidly unfolds over the decade-¬plus timeline. There's constant conflict--man vs. nature, man vs. man, man vs. self. Descriptions are thoroughly colorful, whether in China, at sea, or in the desert. Frankel's 600-¬plus-page saga is reminiscent of Ferber's Giant or Michener's Hawaii--a highly readable adventure from a rollicking period of American history."
