Praise

Voya
"This is a wonderful way to learn history, and may have readers digging into their own family history for 'skeletons' to uncover." - Marian Rafal December 1996

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Old secrets, graveyard wandering, Texas outlawry--it's a heady brew, and readers will relish seeing Andy solve the mystery even as they understand his final dilemma." - Deborah Stevenson January 1997
