"[Barbara S. Mahoney's] considerable strengths as a historian are in story telling and especially bringing characters to life. ... There is much here one will learn about Oregon's early history, the interwoven nature of Oregon's and the United States' politics in the larger Civil War era, and of course about the state's 'founding brothers.'"
Peter Boag, Oregon Historical Quarterly

"Mahoney did a very good job researching this book and was also tireless in her analysis of existing works published about the clique...Mahoney's writing style and storytelling abilities will make this publication appealing [in the classroom and] to the general reader wanting to find out more about the territorial and early statehood periods of Oregon's history."
