Overview

A rag-tag group of Apache warriors, led by an elderly man in his late seventies, took on the U.S. Army's Ninth Cavalry in revenge for the death of the great Apache war chief Victorio. Using guerilla warefare, they led raids through New Mexico, slaughterng men, women, and children and evading the Cavalry and the Buffalo Soldiers. In the end, they won!

Interesting historical characters abound. Billy the Kid was killing people in the southern part of the territory. The New Mexico Territory was governed by Lew Wallace (author of Ben-Hur and territorial governor). Colonel Edward T. Hatch (the chile town of Hatch is named for him)was in charge of the U.S. Army's Ninth Cavalry. And the great Apache war chief Victorio had been killed by the Mexican Army. After Victorio (a supposed treasure trove is named after him) was killed, the elder war chief Nana led the Apache to victory.

Editorial Reviews

New Mexico Magazine
The dynamic narrative format builds suspense as the reader eagerly awaits the discovery of which strategies will ultimately accomplish each side's goal, defeating the enemy, creates a kinship between a contemporary reader and the usually intangible characters of New Mexico's past.

True West Magazine
This swiftly moving tale of death and revenge has long needed to be told.
