Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Blood and Treasure:

"Masterfully researched saga." ―
The Virginia Gazette

“Bob Drury and Tom Clavin together have given us a half-dozen elegantly written narratives of exhilarating episodes in American history. [Blood and Treasure] may be the authors’ finest work to date. Redolent of time and place, a raw and rugged tale.” ―
Wall Street Journal

"For anyone who loves the adventurous side of American history, “Blood and Treasure” is a gem. It’s full of action, thorough and wide. Seek out this treasure and you won’t be disappointed." ―Terri Schlichenmeyer for the
Wyoming Tribune Eagle

“Bob Drury and Tom Clavin, challenge conventional wisdom about an American origin story and, in the process, weave a tale fit for the big screen.” ―
Washington Free Beacon

"Clavin and Drury return with an enlightening biography of Daniel Boone set against the backdrop of 18th-century America’s conflicts with England and Native tribes. [They] successfully separate fact from fiction while keeping the pages turning. History buffs will be entertained." ―
Publishers Weekly

"Popular historians Drury and Clavin deliver a ripsnortin’ tale of the early frontier and its first and most powerful legend. [
Blood and Treasure] offers a vivid account of Boone’s frontier years, one that may not be for the faint of heart." ―Kirkus

"
Blood and Treasure tells the Boone story through the prism of the larger struggle for the frontier. It is a substantial and lively book by an accomplished history-writing duo." ―National Review

Praise for the work of Drury and Clavin:

“A ripping yarn.” ―Laura Miller,
Salon

“Vivid…Lively…A tale of lies, trickery, and brutal slaughter.” ―Christopher Corbett,
The Wall Street Journal

“A page-turner…the narrative has a remarkable immediacy.” ―Kate Tuttle,
The Boston Globe

“Exquisitely told…remarkably detailed.” ―
USA Today

"Filled with an overabundance of details ..." ―Dallas Morning News

"Drury and Clavin have now given us the fullest and most readable account ... against which all subsequent efforts must be measured." ―Joseph J. Ellis, Pulitzer Prize winning author of
Founding Brothers

"The word 'epic' is overused these days. Not here. This is big, blazing history writ large." ―S.C. Gwynne, author of
Empire of the Summer Moon
