"A brilliant and sensitive portrayal not only of Canudos, but of the sertão more generally. By making the defenders of Canudos less spectacular and exceptional, [Levine] has rescued them from the museum of curiosities and restored them to the mainstream of backland life. It is about time we had such nuanced understanding about this tragic misunderstanding."—Steven C. Topik, Luso-Brazilian Review
