"Steve Berman, in "Wagers of Gold Mountain," brings together two Tricksters, Chinese and American, a hapless mortal (who is more clever than he lets on), an intelligent and resourceful young woman, and the American West in the days of gold rushes past and incipient Chinatowns in a story with more than its share of atmosphere and a lot of very quiet drama." -- The Green Man Review
