"Eight months have passed since Sam DeJarnett lost his wife and unborn child to Mescalero Apaches, and now he is one of ten Texas Rangers pursuing those very hostiles in 1881. He lives only for vengeance, and the fresh Mescalero trail in the snow is leading straight into the bitterly cold Sierra Diablo of Texas. In the Mescalero band is Nejeunee, a twenty-year-old woman with a baby. She has lost her husband to the Indaa, or white men, and she lives every moment in hatred. High in the Diablo snows, Sam the Apache hater and Nejeunee the Indaa hater are fated to meet, and what follows will test everything each of them has believed about the other's race. This novel is based on actual events" -- Amazon.com

In 1881 Texas, a young soldier seeking revenge and a woman raised by the Apache find unexpected kinship amid the postâCivil War violence. The U.S. Army recruits former soldiers from either side of the Civil War to protect settlers. Some don't care whom they're fightingâthey need money and love violence. Sam, whose wife was killed by the Mescalero Apaches, is one of the rangers pursuing those responsible for her deathâbut his desire for revenge is nothing like the savagery in his platoon. Sam's preconceptions about violence begin to dissipate, stripping him of certainty about how his wife died, and he refuses to kill Apache women. Nejeunee is a Mexican woman raised by the Apache who is struggling to protect herself and her child from their customs. As she begins to remember her childhood, she encounters a young white man and discovers she trusts him. Although their love story is secondary, the well-developed characters make this western suitable for a wide audience. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
