Killer of Witches: The Life and Times of Yellow Boy, Mescalero Apache

by W. Michael Farmer




Killer of Witches is a powerful story; truth told with fiction that transports the reader to a different background, culture, history, time, and religion. It is the other side of Apache history lived by a people fighting the tsunami of Americans migrating west and the terrors of their supernatural insights.

Five hundred Mescalero Apaches at General James H. Carlton's Bosque Redondo Apache-Navajo concentration camp near Fort Sumner, New Mexico, disappear like ghosts in the wind on a cold November night in1865. The Army never finds the Apaches including a five year-old boy with them, who becomes a legend.
