David M. Shribman, executive editor of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reviewed Continental Divide for The Wall Street Journal in “High Society.” Very different POV than mine.

Here’s the full list of books I’ve reviewed for The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, NPR Books, and others. (This is the 25th.)



  1. Congratulations to both you and The New York Times on another great Greg Crouch book review!
