Killer of Witches is a powerful story; truth told with fiction that transports the reader to a different background, culture, history, time, and religion. It is the other side of Apache history lived by a people fighting the tsunami of Americans migrating west and the terrors of their supernatural insights.
Five hundred Mescalero Apaches at General James H. Carlton's Bosque Redondo Apache-Navajo concentration camp near Fort Sumner, New Mexico, disappear like ghosts in the wind on a cold November night in1865. The Army never finds the Apaches including a five year-old boy with them, who becomes a legend.

Review quote

"It is about time a western writer includes an Apache as the central hero in an expansive story of hard and deadly times. Michael Farmer has created a major character, Yellow Boy, caught between two worlds. He suffers and triumphs as he tries to protect his people. Clever, follower of the ancient ways, yet knowing he has to adjust, Yellow Boy is bold, and pushes the boundaries we all understand when it comes to cultural change. More than well researched, this book is dramatic and heart rending as one follows the men and women of his band deep into the rugged and magnificent landscapes we know from Southern New Mexico to the canyon recesses of the Mexican Sierra Madre. Book 1, Killer of Witches in The Life and Times of Yellow Boy, Mescalero Apache trilogy by Farmer is a keeper."
