The compelling story of a man's courage tested to the limit in a merciless little war where sudden death hides behind every rock.
As the Civil War begins to brew in the East, a smaller but equally vicious conflict flares up in the West. Bands of Apache warriors, their way of life threatened, have decided to die fighting and to take with them as many of their enemies as they can.
It's a conflict that brings two brave and determined men together. Kiannatah, a member of Geronimo's band, once saw his entire family slaughtered by invaders. Without fear he trods the path of vengeance. Meanwhile, Lt. Joshua Barlow turns the conflict into a personal battle, willing to defy the U.S. Army to fight Apaches his own way.
THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE EPIC APACHE TRILOGY, WHICH INCLUDES APACHE STRIKE AND APACHE SHADOW, BY THE AUTHOR OF HIGH COUNTRY AND MOUNTAIN PASSAGE.
