"An Apache warrior bent down from his horse, its glossy black flanks still heaving from exertion, to pick me up. As his hand grabbed my arm I bit hard into the flesh of his forearm. It was a deep bite and he shouted with pain. The other Apaches laughed loudly at his discomfort.
He reached down again. I tried the same tactic but this time he was too quick. He jerked me upwards onto his horse and sat me in front of him. I fought like a cornered bobcat, spitting, biting and clawing. He struck me on the back of the neck. A vivid flash, then darkness."
Thus begins the saga of Pedro Bautista captured by the Apache Indians when he was nine years old after a raid on his Mexican village. Adopted into the tribe, he absorbed their culture and survived their eventual confrontation and defeat by American troops.
BOOKLIST reported: "...descriptions of the battle scenes will delight the reader who appreciates fiction set against the Old West backdrop."
