Praise and Awards for SHORT NIGHTS OF THE SHADOW CATCHER: THE EPIC LIFE AND IMMORTAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF EDWARD CURTIS

—Hampton Sides, author of Blood and Thunder
  
Praise for BIG BURN: TEDDY ROOSEVELT AND THE FIRE THAT SAVED AMERICA
 
"[Egan] has already proved himself to be a masterly collector of memorable stories. His new book, The Big Burn, continues in the same tradition…What makes The Big Burn particularly impressive is Egan’s skill as an equal-opportunity storyteller. By this I mean that he recounts the stories of men and women completely unknown to most of us with the same fervor he uses to report the stories of historic figures…Even as we mark the centennial of this great fire, wildfires in the West continue to burn. It makes this bookwhich is a masterwork in every senseworthy of a very careful reading." Christian Science Monitor 
 
"Few writers have the Pulitzer Prize-winning Egan's gift for transforming history lessons into the stuff of riveting page-turners...Don't miss this one. Grade: A." Entertainment Weekly

"Egan has gone beyond statistics to reach the heart of this tragedy. The Worst Hard Time provides a sobering, gripping account of a disaster whose wounds are still not fully healed today." Boston Globe
 
"As one who as a young reporter survived and reported on the great dust bowl disaster, I recommend this book as a dramatic, exciting and accurate account of that incredible and deadly phenomenon. This is can't put it down history." Walter Cronkite
