Editorial Review:

Product Description:

“Ralph Connor is a great find.” -The Critic

“Every chapter is an act of drama which moves steadily onward to its predestined climax – he possesses all the power of Bret Harte.” -Catholic Standard and Times

“The same qualities of insight, descriptive skill, pathos and humor, are mingled here as in ‘Black Rock.’” – Boston Watchman

“Not since ‘The Bonnie Brier Bush’ has a writer appeared with so strong and masterful a hand in dealing with the rigor and pathos of life.” -Chicago Herald

“Ralph Connor has something of his own. He has, for one thing, a new subject. For another he has a style that fits it. Books more bracing in tone than these I have never read. They are full of life and full of the best kind of life.” -The British Weekly

“Ralph Connor’s ‘Black Rock’ was good, but ‘The Sky Pilot’ is better. The matter which he gives us is real life; virile, true, tender, humorous, pathetic, spiritual, wholesome. His Bret Harte manner in describing this life has at times a distinct and refreshing quality of literary workmanship; his style, fresh, crisp and terse, accords with the Western life, which he well understands. Henceforth the foot-hills of the Canadian Rockies will probably be associated I many a mind with the name of Ralph Connor.” -The Outlook

“If heroism in the cause of Christ awoke as responsive a thrill in the hearts of this generation as do deeds of valor in the field of blood, the person who writes under the nom de plume of Ralph Connor wold be as popular today as Rudyard Kipling.” -Chicago Times-Herald

“Ralph Connor uses a pen dipped in the very colors and tones of the canyon and the sunlit hills, his grasp of the characteristic slang is free and graphic, and his knowledge of the primitive vices and virtues is obviously no mere book-lore. Such a tale is sure to find numerous readers, for it touches just those chords which vibrate luxuriously in the popular heart.” -Boston Transcript
