I got hooked on reading Don Coldsmith's "Spanish Bit" books back in the early 90's when I stumbled on one that had just come out. The story looked interesting, I bought it and enjoyed it and then discovered that it was one of MANY in a series. I ended up buying all that were out and then bought new ones as they came out. Coldsmith is an amazing writer and an amazing person. The books are interesting and seem to be pretty historically and ethnically correct, although the "tribe" in them is not an existing tribe, but rather a mix of several plains tribes. This story concerns Juan Garcia's son, Owl. After getting hurt, Juan had missed getting back with the other soldiers and had been left for dead. Eventually, through a complicated but still believable series of events, Juan had become the chief of the tribe that befriended him. He had married a girl from the tribe and had Eagle, then Owl. Owl has been apprenticed to the medicine man, but has a series of bad luck and ends up a slave to the Spanish. How he copes with his problems and where it all leads make an interesting story, which is usual for Coldsmith's books. I already had this as a paperback, but was delighted to find it on Kindle. If you've read and liked Coldsmith before, you'll probably like this. If you haven't, it's well worth a try.
