Fort De Chastaigne

(Book 16 in the Spanish Bit Saga series)
A novel by

The People of the plains offer their guidance to the French, who seek safe passage to Santa Fe, but the bonds of trust are fragile and will soon face their most severe test-when violence erupts...Fort De Chastaigne New temptations and new dangers threaten the peaceful lives of the Elk-dog People. The wise old medicine man, White Fox, and his impressionable young son, Red Horse, have agreed to guide Captain LeFever of Fort de Chastaigne to Santa Fe, in his quest to establish trade relations with the Spanish. But their destination proves to be an elusive one; Baptiste DuBois, the vicious leader of a band of voyageurs, joins the expedition and cruelly assaults a Mandan Indian woman, trapping LeFever and the People of the plains in the middle of an unwanted blood feud. For young Red Horse, the voyage downriver becomes a journey to manhood as he confronts treachery, passion, and greed that inflame the heart and imperil the survival of his people. The Spanish Bit Saga Set in the New World of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Don Coldsmith's acclaimed novels re-create a time, a place, and a people that have been nearly lost in history in the making through the eyes of those proud Native Americans who lived it.
