In BriefA "Kid" from Tennessee gets drawn into one of the most violent periods of American history in this utterly savage tale of scalphunters on the 19th Century US-Mexico frontier.
Why you should read itDive into the whirlwind of bloody events that led to the subjugation of the Apaches and the southwestern expansion of the United States of America. This is US/Mexican history as you've never experienced it before, and a truly remarkable portrait of evil in human form.
