Hombrcito's Search

(2007)
(The second book in the Vanishing series)
A novel by

 
Ambushing and killing Albert Fountain's murderers, Henry Grace, Hombrecito, and his Apache mentor, Yellow Boy, disappear into the Sierra Madre Mountains and there help a young woman search for her little brother stolen by Apache raiders. For Henry, the search is an odyssey of self-discovery and revelation in a hard, unforgiving land where to make a mistake is to die and the promise of tomorrow is what you make it. It is a myth many lived, but few survived on the last western frontier of southern New Mexico and Arizona and northern Chihuahua and Sonora, a frontier that bronco Apaches still raided into the third decade of the twentieth century.

W. Michael Farmer lives and writes in Smithfield, Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He learned much of the rich story life of the southwest through living in Las Cruces, New Mexico, for nearly fifteen years. Although a physicist by training, as an author of western historical fiction he has published short stories in four anthologies, won awards for essays at the Christopher Newport University Writers' Conference, and published essays in magazines. His first novel in the Vanishing Trilogy, Hombrecito's War, won a Western Writers of America Silver Spur Award for Best First Novel in 2006 and was a New Mexico Book Award Finalist for Historical Fiction in 2007. The sequel, Hombrecito's Search, was released in July 2007. Tiger Tiger Burning Bright: The Betrayals of Pancho Villa, released in December 2011 completed the trilogy. His third novel, Conspiracy: The Trial of Oliver Lee and James Gililland, was published in 2009.
