Overview

Puma Son of Mountain Lion is a half-Indian boy who is away from his village undergoing the rites of manhood. When he returns, he finds his village destroyed by a warring tribe and his family slain. His mother dies in his arms and her last words are: "Go find your father."

Puma finds his father in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His father welcomes him with open arms and trains him in the white man's ways. Puma accompanies his family to visit his grandparents in Virginia and Georgia. He attends West Point and becomes a cavalry officer and placed in command of a troop charged with protecting a wagon train traveling from Independence to Santa Fe. In Santa Fe, he is directed to prevent white outlaw bands from taking the land that belongs to the early settlers and must also fight off renegade Apaches.

A war is developing between the North and South, and he is concerned that it will destroy his father's families. A war is also brewing in the west and he does not want to be fighting against his own people. He is deeply torn about where his loyalties lie.

This book, the second of this story was just as exciting and action packed as the first one. I loved this book and would love to see the story continue.

A great sequel to Sagebrush couldn't put it down. I am a great fan of Louis L'Amour and both were as good.

This is the second book that follows the first book and both are good reads. Love the characters and the plot. Kept me up late reading. Well worth the time.

This book and the previous one, Sagebrush, was impossible to put down! The characters seemed very real and the description of the landscape and animals was wonderful. Really got into the lives of this family and hated to see it end. I really hope he writes more sequels. You will really enjoy this writer and the adventures he pens.

Enjoyable follow-up book to the first, "Sagebrush."  It's a little hard to believe that Puma would go so readily to his white father even after his mother and half brother and sister were killed by marauding Comanches, and hard also to believe that the book did not show his having any problems in the white world, hence why I gave this four stars. But nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this western read.
