A real hoot, though like most old southwest humor it has its dark moments that cut through the humor. Captain Suggs, with his classic motto "it's good to be shifty in a new country," is a real jerk. His antics - cheating and impersonating, primarily - are often entertaining, but not so much as the narrative irony in which they're depicted: formally, the book is a satire of Jacksonain Democrats' campaign biographies and the loose memoirs for frontier figures like Daniel Boone.
