"The book is carefully written; in fact, so well written that some claim that it came from the pen of someone more literate than Hardin. On the other hand, Hardin was not as illiterate as many believed; he taught a frontier school as a young man, and his study of law while he was in prison no doubt improved his education."--Adams.
"Hardin was an unusual type killer, a handsome gentlemanly man who considered himself a pillar of society, always maintaining that he did not kill anyone who did not need killing."--Sonnichsen.
