    Story

    Imagine yourself, a Spanish lancer in the early 19 century, caught in an ambush in a narrow mountain pass in Northern Mexico, with war paint adorned men shooting muskets and arrows at your troop; as your horses rear uncontrollably preventing you from escaping from certain death. This is but one scene in a richly written tale of life in what became the southwest U.S. and Mexico. The author masterfully describes the rituals which the plains indians invoke in their preparation for battles, including how they are dressed and painted; how they strategize their plans for revenge against the killers of their tribesmen; the rituals they employ after killing their enemies to request their spirit's forgiveness for having killed them.

    The book is filled with insights into the culture of plains indians, in this case Cheyenne, Kiowa and Gataka (a tribe closely related to Kiowas and Apaches)

    This is a truly entertaining, and excellently written narrative of adventure on the plains.
