In a desert outpost north of Tucson, an encampment of peaceful Apaches is slaughtered by a bloodthirsty band of white vigilantes. Now the brilliant and ruthless war chief Cochise gathers his renegades and prepares for payback. Savage war is about to break out. But there are some on both sides who strive to keep the peace.
One of these is Cochise's son-in-law, Lieutenant Joshua Barlow. Until, that is, his Apache bride is taken by Kiannatah, the renegade who has waged a one-man vendetta against Americans, Mexicans, and even his own kind, vengeance for the loss of all he held dear.
Now Barlow has his own a score to settle. He rides through a land torn by savagery and drenched with blood to meet his fate in the Sierra Madre, a stretch of hell that no lone white man has ever survived.
ANOTHER EPIC ADVENTURE IN THE APACHE TRILOGY, WHICH INCLUDES APACHE STORM AND APACHE STRIKE.
