Product Overview

From the author of the critically acclaimed Comanche Dawn comes the story of the first American fort in Comanche Country and the men and women who built it. When Honore Greenwood sits down to tell his tale, people listen. Friends of such stalwarts of the West as Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick, John Hatcher, and the Bent Brothers. Greenwood at ninety-nine, has lived the life of a legend.

Greenwood came to America stowed away on a packet bound for New Orleans. He was wanted for murder in Paris for killing a master swordsman who raped the woman he loved. His destination is the wildest frontier in 1840s America, the Indian ranges of the Great Southern Plains.

After falling in love with Gabriela Badillo, a beautiful young woman from Taos who is tragically promised to another, Honore carries his broken heart into the wilderness. He volunteers for a most dangerous project. He will build a fort right in the middle of Comanche Country.

From the Publisher
Editors Note In Comanche Dawn Mike Blakely does for the Comanche nation what Ruth Bebe Hills did for the Sioux in Hanta Yo. This landmark novel is the first time the story has been told from the point of view of the Comanches themselves. We witness the rise of one of the most powerful mounted nations in history through the eyes of a young warrior named Horseback. Born on the very day that the first horse comes to his people, Horseback matures into a leader of unquestionable courage and vision. He assumes powerful medicine granted to him by spirits encountered on a grueling vision quest, and he takes Teal, the most beautiful young woman of his tribe, as his wife and lifelong love. Guided by forces more powerful and dangerous then even he can control or explain, Horseback will face death time and time again with only his medicine and Teal to stand beside him.Failure will mean destruction not only for himself, but for his people. Success will mean unimaginable wealth for his new nation. Ancient enemies will seek to destroy him. Strange newcomers with pale skin and treacherous ways will attempt to enslave him. Even his own inner spirit powers threaten always to consume him, should he fail to respect them. Only the bravest of True Humans dare to follow Horseback on his great adventure down a trail that can lead only to glory or annihilation.
