His bio of DB was the best thing he wrote; compellingly told, free from moralizing, simple and direct in style. Flint avoids the didactic quality of Bryan. His narrative is well-written and interesting. Can be read with pleasure. It was a book, as an early biographer of Flint wrote, "over whose charmed pages thousands of western boys have pored, as they sat by the winter fire." William H.
