Overview

From its territorial status in 1863 through to its admission as a state in 1912, Arizona was a frontier with vastly different characteristics from what had preceded settlers in the east. Rugged, desolate, sometimes parched, jagged, difficult, and dangerous, it would have been best left to its first people, the Hualapai Indians, had it not been for the immense wealth below its soil. This drama unfolds in 1907, a time of powerful change in the Arizona Territory as the influences of the past finally give way to the emerging world of the 20th century, leaving the last vestige of the Frontier to slip uniquely into American history. Based on historic accounts of an Arizona Ranger, James Warren, and of a Hualapai shaman, TaThamiche-or Wallapai Jack as he was called by the Whites-what begins as an uneventful prisoner escort from Kingman to Wickenburg, A.T., culminates in a reckoning.

As an Arizonan who prides herself in knowing local and state-wide history I thoroughly enjoyed the historic references and correct handling of territorial times. Imagery is fantastic. Unique story line. Would like to know what happens after commited ending, though. Sequel planned?
