When Rebecca's mother dies in 1870 rural Tennessee, the 18 year old red-headed free spirit finds herself with no land, little money, no husband, and no prospects. So, in answer to an advertisement for a "mail order" bride, she sets out for the frontier--Verde Valley, Arizona. Traveling west with a cavalry wagon train, Rebecca encounters Indian raids, fends off dishonorable advances, makes unexpected friends, and begins to learn to survive in a new, harsher environment. When she arrives in Arizona, her adventures intensify, as she strives to make a life in the wilderness and comes face to face with her new husband's deadly secret. Fire Hair is an exciting, heart-felt, and realistic human adventure set in the vastness of the American West. Life-long Western scholar Harvey Honsinger captures the details of daily life in the 1870's: what people ate and wore and used and shot, as well as how they talked and what they felt. He brings to life the men and women of that age: the brave and the cowardly, the honorable and the dishonorable, the good and the evil. With enough horse-sweat and gunsmoke to satisfy readers of traditional Westerns, Fire Hair also has the authenticity of a well-researched historical novel, and the grandeur of an epic.
