The People of the Plains are led by Heads Off, who in another life was known by the name Juan Garcia. Circumstances placed him in a leadership role; he only stayed to share his life with Tall One, now the mother of his children. Since the defeat of their rivals many years earlier, life has been peaceful and food plentiful, but the young men of the tribe long for their own triumphs in battle. A bloody chance encounter with a small hunting party fans the flames, and soon the tribe is engaged in a war. Coldsmith, voted one of the greatest western writers of the twentieth century by the Western Writers of America, continues his Spanish Bit Saga with a morality tale containing lessons for modern readers. The People are drawn into war by a few warriors who seek personal glory, without regard for the consequences to their tribe. Coldsmith portrays the conflicted, often painful, role leaders must play while also exploring the dynamics of a society that has to reaffirm its value through armed conflict.
