Description

Ghost Warrior is a sensitive treatment of a little-known Apache heroine, from New York Times bestselling author Lucia St. Clair Robson
Lozen has known since childhood that the spirits have chosen her to defend Apache freedom. As the US army prepares to move her people to an Arizona reservation, Lozen forsakes marriage and motherhood to fight among the men. Supported by her brother, Apache chief Victorio, and the other chiefs, Lozen proves her mettle as a soldier, reconnaissance scout, and peerless military strategist.

Rafe Collins is a young adventurer and veteran of the Mexican War. On a dangerous journey between El Paso and Santa Fe, he builds an unlikely but enduring rapport with the Warm Springs Apaches. When his bond to Lozen goes far beyond friendship, he must undertake a perilous course that will change his life forever.

For more than a century, Apaches have kept alive the memory of Lozen. A valiant warrior and revered shaman, she fought alongside Geronimo, Cochise, and Victorio, holding out against the armies of both the United States and Mexico. Ghost Warrior is a rich and powerful frontier tale filled with unforgettable characters.
