Here the reader is in a position of observer of proceedings, capable of private opinion but unable to influence final results. The author's research has been very extensive, as proved by his main text, notes, bibliography, and appendixes. There is no index. Most of this book deals directly with trials of Graham and a few others, presenting interesting legal aspects. California Historical Society Quarterly, Vol. 48, No. 4 (Dec., 1969), pp. 353-354.
